Excellence – with plenty of noise

This week’s CIPR Excellence Awards event was the scene of some raucous celebrations – not least from PROs representing the Royal British Legion.

The legion may not normally be associated with boisterous booze-ups, but host BBC’s Stephen Sackur ended the evening by ­crowning its contingent the noisiest table.

The real winners of the night, however, were ­London Communcations Agency, which beat off Fishburn Hedges, JBP, Lansons and Octopus to bag the award for Outstanding PR Consultancy.

Well done, chaps. But spare a thought for Splendid Communications. The agency apparently gained ‘substantial’ media coverage for the launch of Squeezy Marmite, but this was completely lost on Sackur.

‘Squeezy Marmite?’ he boomed across the room incredulously. ‘I didn’t know
it existed.’
