Allestree-based marketing agency, Balls2 Marketing, will be flying the flag for Derby as the city’s only representative in the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) Midlands PRide Awards 2019, having been named as finalists in not one but three categories. And to top it off, Senior Account Manager Lauren Doyle has also been nominated for Outstanding Young Communicator.
The prestigious regional PR awards recognise outstanding work delivered to clients and employers across the UK and winners are selected by a team of leading industry experts. Balls2 Marketing is up for Outstanding Small Public Relations Consultancy, Outstanding Public Relations Consultancy, and Construction, Property or Infrastructure Campaign.
“It’s always great to be a finalist for a PRide Award,” says Sarah Ball, Client Strategy Director at Balls2 Marketing. “It really does prove that we offer a highly professional service to our clients, and to be on the shortlist for three awards is just fantastic!
“We’re particularly pleased that Lauren is a finalist in the Outstanding Young Communicator category. She really is a very talented and hard-working member of our team and it’s great that this has been recognised.”
Lauren started at Balls2 Marketing as PR Assistant in October 2014 and has advanced to her current position through ongoing training with the CIPR’s CPD scheme and advanced certificates.
“I’m really chuffed to be named in the top 3 young communicators in the midlands,” says Lauren. “PRide awards celebrate the best in PR and communications and it’s brilliant that I’m on the list, as well as Balls2 Marketing being named finalists in the other three categories.”
Winners of the CIPR Midlands PRide Awards will be announced at the awards ceremony on Friday 27 September at The Birmingham Conference and Events Centre.
