Tonight is the annual CIPR North East Pride awards.
I’m rather pleased that our team has been shortlisted for ten awards. It’s been a busy, challenging, rewarding and hugely enjoyable year.
Our work on major infrastructure projects like Mersey Gateway and the newly-christened Northern Spire has really been an incredible experience and a privilege for all involved to see some incredible engineering and get involved in projects that change lives and shape communities.
Alongside that we’ve been working some with very clever clients and partners to deliver some great campaigns.
Paul Holmes from The Holmes Report (a man much cleverer than me on these things) said last year that ““The pace of change in public relations has never been faster than it is today, but at the same time, it will likely never be this slow again.”
How right he was, and how terrifying and exciting that concept is. The world is changing and the way we communicate is changing even faster.
Our challenge is to keep up – so if you’re in the industry standing still is not an option. Make sure you read the latest blogs from Wadds and others, get signed up to the CIPR and become part of a truly professional PR community, and never stop learning.
Awards are great, and I hope we win something tonight because the team deserves it, because you only get them through hard work and inspiration.
Well done to everyone who is shortlisted and good luck for this evening.
Thanks for reading
