It was a night of glory at last night’s PRCA DARE awards as we took home the top accolade of Large Consultancy of the Year, along with two other campaign awards. Go us!
As the talented bunch of PR pros that we are (!) – we are also very chuffed to earn industry recognition for our work with i heart Wines winning Integrated Campaign of the Year, alongside B2B Campaign of the Year for our global work for BRITA VIVREAU.
The big win of the night was regaining the title of Large Consultancy of the Year, having previously won the coveted honour for three years running from 2016 to 2019. The award recognises the passionate focus of our agency and team to redefine PR and demonstrate its value; showing unwavering determination to ensure that every piece of work makes a clear difference to clients, their customers, and the wider environment.
The award also credits the strength of our people and culture work with our Balance programme. Ensuring our team achieve the right balance in all aspects of work and home life, Balance incorporates a range of guidance and benefits including annual health checks, trained Mental Health First Aiders in team, a health cash plan of £900 per employee, confidential 24/7 GP and counselling service plus regular speakers on stress awareness, sleep management and nutrition. Proof of impact is shown in team feedback with 96% endorsing Speed’s positive work culture and 92% feeling fully supported.
Our MD, Kelly commented: “Being recognised by our peers and the industry means a huge amount. The team at Speed is passionate about their clients and the impact that PR can deliver, as demonstrated by the winning campaigns for BRITA and I heart Wines. And to be named Large Consultancy of the Year is a real honour. This award acknowledges not just our business success but the culture of Speed, our focus on innovation and creativity and how we are living our values every day in support of the team.”
