CubanEight retains Outstanding Small Consultancy honour at the CIPR PRide Awards
On Friday, the CubanEight team threw on their glad rags and headed to the CIPR Thames & Chiltern PRide Awards. Having been shortlisted for four awards this year – Best Use of Media Relations, Corporate and Business Communications, Outstanding Young Communicator and Outstanding Small Consultancy – we were keen to hear how we had fared against the competition.
The evening started well, with CubanEight’s First Utility team scooping the silver award for Best Use of Media Relations for our campaign entitled ‘David takes on Goliath in energy debate’, a campaign which saw the UK’s largest independent energy company challenge the lack of competition in the UK’s energy market.
Unfortunately we weren’t so lucky in the Corporate and Business Communications and Outstanding Young Communicator categories, but we finished the evening on a high, scooping one of the most prestigious awards of the evening as we were named Outstanding Small Consultancy for the second year running!
The CIPR noted, “CubanEight is clearly an ambitious and hard-working agency that dares to think big. It is good to see their strategic approach is balanced with tangible deliverables and a lot of great coverage. This was a well-presented entry, with a great example of a campaign they are proud of.”
Add to this the excitement over the fabulously indulgent dessert and, all in all, a great evening was had by all. Our thanks go to the CIPR for organising such a great event.
