Speed has been named Most Outstanding Multi-Sector PR Agency at the 2017 Global Excellence Awards, hosted by Corporate Vision Magazine.

The award, which Speed has won for the second consecutive year, is open to agencies globally and recognises multi-sector and multi-national strategic PR consultancy.

Speed was recognised for the award based on its specialist knowledge and comms expertise across business & corporate, consumer & lifestyle and food & hospitality PR. The agency, which acts as the lead global PR agency for 28% of clients, was also noted for its strong client retention and organic growth over the last year.

The news follows Speed’s win at the PRCA Dare Awards in June, which saw the agency take home the Large Consultancy of the Year Award, which singled out the Speed’s client work, culture and best practice initiatives. The agency has also been shortlisted for PR agency of the year at the B2B Marketing awards, due to be announced in November.

“We have worked incredibly hard to define and grow our specialist PR offer in key markets, resulting in a great client portfolio and the delivery of some outstanding campaigns,” said Kelly Pepworth, Managing Director.

“Our focus is to help clients achieve faster. This means working in partnership with them delivering insight, challenge and creativity to find the fastest possible route to the most powerful communication solution.

“It is this insightful and analytical approach, focused on business impact not PR outputs, that clients value and helps Speed stand apart from its competitors.”
