Stripe Communications last night (6 December), notched up a further two golds at this year’s CIPR Scotland Pride Award, including the prestigious title of Outstanding Public Relations Consultancy for the second time in four years.
Stripe’s night in the spotlight also saw the team win the top accolade for Best Healthcare Campaign for their work with the Scottish Government on Alcohol Behaviour Change, as well as two silver awards for their work on the Nairn’s Oatcakes – ‘Nairn’s Naturally Energising’ Consumer Campaign and Scottish Government’s ‘Scotland the World over’ Digital Campaign.
Morna McLelland, Joint Managing Director, said: “We’re so proud of this outstanding result for the Stripe team. With a number of high profile business wins, continued growth and an expanding team of talented PR professionals, it’s a fantastic way to have our achievements and ongoing client support recognised by our industry peers.”
Said the judges of Stripe: “Stripe has proved that even during an economic recession agencies can develop and grow, delivering impressive fee income increases and enviable margins, whilst keeping teams happy and clients delighted. Happy clients are great news but happy clients who refer new business are a dream, and that is what Stripe has achieved.”
In a CIPR Scotland media release, Laura Sutherland, chair of the CIPR Scotland, is quoted, as saying: “Scotland can boast success amongst the plethora of consummate professionals in the communications world – this is a true accolade in itself and one to be celebrated and applauded. As the industry develops, more and more we are being held accountable for value, measurement and best practice. Tonight’s awards have confirmed the wealth of talent in Scottish communications.”
