Here at Harvard we love awards: It’s brilliant to get industry recognition for the hard work we put in every day, it helps to deepen our relationships with clients and it gets us noticed by those people looking for new roles in the industry… We’re always interested in hearing from talented people by the way, so give us a call if that’s you!
We’re particularly proud this week because we have been nominated for five gongs, across four different clients at the B2B Marketing Awards, in what we think are some of the best categories: Social media, content marketing, customer insight and thought leadership, topped off with a nomination for the whole agency.
Combine this with being shortlisted for Specialist Agency of the Year at the PR Week Awards and a couple of DADI’s for our digital work and that’s EIGHT massive reasons to look forward to the autumn.
We’ve had an awesome 2016 so far, our best year to date. One of those years when it all comes together. We’ve invested heavily in our people, increasing our capabilities in digital, demand generation and editorial and we’re focussing on generating genuine measurable outcomes for clients. Putting all of this together, we think, is getting us noticed.
Lots of PR agencies over recent years have expanded or remodelled themselves to deliver wider marketing services with great success and I truly believe that the industry has a huge opportunity to take a much bigger slice of marketing budgets. We truly understand specialist audiences, we’re used to responding in real-time and we’re natural storytellers, all great attributes for the digital age.
At Harvard this is down to our awesome people working hard to integrate services in the interests of clients’ needs, without the internal boundaries that tend to slow integration down.
