But it’s a testament to the hard work of our teams and the great relationships with our clients. It’s really pleasing to be recognised so many sectors, which shows the breadth of skills we have in the agency today. Whatever happens on the awards night, we’re just delighted to be recognised at this level. Well done to all involved.”
