Skout has been named silver winner of the Outstanding Small Consultancy category in the 2013 North West Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) PRide Awards. We’re delighted to win the award after three years of hard graft getting ourselves established. Its testament to everyone’s efforts here and also the support of our clients. We were also particularly pleased to be the only pure B2B and tech PR agency in the Manchester area to be shortlisted; it’s positive to see the B2B PR sector gain recognition in this way.
The CIPR PRide Awards, sponsored nationally by Precise, PRWeek and RedBrand/Specialist Speakers, receive entries from freelancers, consultancies and in-house teams across 12 UK regions and nations. The judging process for the PRide Awards is rigorous with a national panel of industry experts assessing the shortlisted entries and choosing the winners.
CIPR President Sue Wolstenholme FCIPR, commented: “The North West CIPR PRide Awards celebrate the very best public relations campaigns, teams and individuals from across the North West. The exceptional quality of entries received this year is a real testament to the thriving industry which exists here in the region. The CIPR PRide Awards represent the best, most creative and most effective public relations work across the UK regions and nations and to win a silver award is a great achievement which means your work has been judged as amongst the best in the area by leading public relations experts.”
