CIPR Midlands PRide Awards shortlist announced

More than 40 of the Midlands leading public relations teams, consultancies and individuals have made the shortlist of the 2014 CIPR Midlands PRide Awards, the region’s premier public relations awards scheme.

Of the shortlisted organisations across the region, McCann PR, Gough Bailey Wright, and Willoughby Public Relations, led the way being shortlisted 10, eight, and eight times respectively.

Sometimes public relations can be the unsung hero of the boardroom – building and managing reputations, engaging stakeholders and encouraging transparency and accountability. That's why these awards are so important, to recognise and celebrate the diverse work of so many in-house and agency teams across the Midlands. A place on the shortlist is a tremendous achievement, and I hope everyone here is looking forward to their turn in the spotlight, at the CIPR Midlands PRide Awards on 14 November at the Ricoh Arena.
