Speed 23 June 2017

Speed has won the coveted Large Consultancy of the Year award at this year’s PRCA Dare ceremony.

This award, which is open to any consultancy with 11 staff or over, is judged by assessing the financial performance, client growth, innovation and implementation of creative ideas.

Speed was selected by the judges based on our client work, culture and best practice initiatives, citing the following as particularly impressive:

-Retention of 92% of existing client fee over the past year and 35% organic growth

-Growth of our specialist service offering across content and digital, with senior hires and bespoke client offering

-Our unique monthly Inspired sessions across the agency to share the best examples of excellence in communications to drive creative thinking and execution

-Strong investment in staff training, with every Speedster receiving 90hrs of training across 2016

Our client work was also singled out as award winning with Speed taking home the Stunt of the Year award for our work with aquatic brand, Tetra. The Tetra Tranquillity Tank, a sensory experience hosted in Old Street Tube Station, won the category, beating off competition from Sunseeker International and Clarks Natural Sweeteners.

“To win Large Consultancy of the Year is an incredible achievement,” commented Kelly Pepworth, managing director at Speed.

“It’s recognition that we are outperforming the competition but more importantly, excelling in all aspects of what makes a good agency great both from a client and team perspective.

“It is down to bold campaigns such as The Tetra Tranquillity Tank that deliver for our clients and challenge what has gone before. Couple this with our continual investment in supporting the team with their career development and providing an engaging and rewarding place to work and we seem to have ticked the right boxes with the judges.”
