cofinitive shortlisted in leading industry awards amongst world’s elite

cofinitive is delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted amongst the world’s elite PR agencies in the upcoming CIPR Excellence 2020 Awards.

Our Cambridge-based PR & Marketing consultancy, which specialises in branding, strategy, marketing communication & engagement, has been shortlisted in the Small PR Consultancy of the Year category in recognition of the consistently high level of service we provide and achieve for our clients across all industries and sectors, locally, nationally and internationally.

The CIPR Excellence Awards – hosted by the Chartered Institute of Public Relations – are the PR industry’s leading awards, recognising and rewarding the phenomenal work of PR agencies, teams and individuals internationally.

We are immensely proud to be the only PR & Marketing company from East Anglia to be included in the shortlists – and, even more so, to be considered alongside major global firms such as Ogilvy, Ketchum, Weber Shandwick and Edelman.

In reaching their shortlist of just eight agencies in the Small PR Consultancy of the Year category, the judging panel, made up of a team of 60 experienced PR doyens, additionally considered cofinitive’s pay-it-forward ethos and contributions to the Cambridge eco-system – including our annual #21toWatch campaign which we use to celebrate and promote the outstanding individuals, companies and innovations from our region.

cofinitive recently featured as the fastest riser two consecutive years running in Business Weekly’s New Year’s Honours Image Makers list – up from 8th position in 2018 to 5th position in 2019 to 2nd position at the start of this year. The agency and its inspiration, Faye Holland, are also shortlisted in the 30th Anniversary Business Weekly Awards, presentations for which will be held when the current coronavirus lockdown has been lifted.

cofinitive founder and director, Faye Holland said: “I am hugely proud and absolutely overwhelmed to see cofinitive and the work we are doing recognised on an international stage alongside huge global stalwarts and by our industry’s own chartered body. This is both a massive achievement and honour for us.

“All too often there is a misconception that, if an agency is located within our capital city, it must mean they can do a better or more efficient job.  But this isn’t always the case as this nomination so clearly shows. We succeed at cofinitive because we know what we’re doing and care about what we do.  And we are eternally proud to be at the epicentre of the world-leading, thriving business community here in Cambridge.”
