On Friday 17th July I had the absolute pleasure of finding out that I have been shortlisted for the Chartered Institute for Public Relations (CIPR) South of England and Channel Islands PRide Outstanding Independent Practitioner Award. The CIPR South of England and Channel Islands PRide Awards cover Bristol, Cornwall, Dorset, Devonshire, East Sussex, Gloucestershire, Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Kent, Somerset, Surrey, The Channel Islands, West Sussex, and Wiltshire.
Having gone through the panel of 22 judges, I am now shortlisted against one other independent PR practitioner and the winner of this category for the past two-years, Karen Tippett-Lehane of TippetPR.
The awards dinner will take place on 20th November at The Bristol Marriott Hotel City Centre. The full shortlist can be found here: http://www.cipr.co.uk/content/awards-events/pride-awards/south-england-and-channel-islands/shortlist
Over the past 12 months I have secured over 600 pieces of media coverage for a mixture of retailed clients and shorter projects, such as the Sussex Sports Awards and Virgin Holidays. This includes aligning clients, such as Bishop’s Move and Retail Human Resources, with some of the most debated issues across the UK such as fuel duty costs, stamp duty, and the gender pay gap. Most important of all, the coverage I have secured has had a significant impact on both the performances and reputation of my clients clearly demonstrating what a tailored and highly creative PR campaign can achieve.
I am obviously thrilled with this news and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has played a part in the past unforgettable five-years since the foundation of Sherlock PR. Here’s to the next five!
