Conscious Communications shortlisted for fifth award of the year

We have been nominated for Small Consultancy of the Year for the South East and East Anglia region in the PRCA Dare Awards 2017!

This nomination marks our fifth shortlisting of the year, having previously also been nominated for awards at the Recommended Agency Awards, two CIPR Excellence Awards, and the Cambridge SME Awards – in which we were crowned Community Business of the Year!

The PRCA Dare Awards, which have been revamped for 2017, seek to celebrate PR professionals from across the country and are open to all companies involved in the industry. The awards are judged by a panel of industry experts and PR ‘insiders’ from their respective regions, with both in-house and agency-based communications professionals taking a seat on the panel.

The Small Consultancy of the Year shortlist is based on agency innovation, implementation of creative ideas, and staff and client retention and acquisition and we are extremely proud to have made the shortlist.

We will be heading to London to attend the awards on Wednesday 19 July – fingers crossed we will be heading back to Cambridge with another award!

Conscious Communications set to complete almost 1,000 hours of charity work

We are proud to announce that we are on track to complete almost 1,000 hours of charity work over the coming year for a number of local and national charitable organisations.

Every year each team member is gifted two paid days to spend working with a charity of their choice. The objective of our team’s volunteer days is to share our public relations and marketing skills and expertise with charities that may not otherwise have the resources to deliver effective communications. Charities that have benefitted from our team’s work to date include the PCA Benevolent Fund, Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust, Godmanchester Foodbank, Carers’ Trust Cambridgeshire, Contact the Elderly and Age UK Cambridgeshire.

We have also announced local Cambridgeshire charity, Blue Smile, as our 2017 charity of the year. Blue Smile is a children’s charity which improves the mental well-being and prospects of local children through arts-based therapies.

Alison Taylor, Managing Director, said: “The whole team firmly believes in the importance of everyone playing their part in supporting our community. Our charitable contribution is important and rewarding. We embrace the spirit of the old adage ‘be the change you want to see’ and hope that others will follow suit.”

We are currently working alongside the team at Blue Smile to support them in the design and production of marketing collateral, including case studies, fundraising presentations to pitch to corporate organisations and presentations for new school partners. We will also support the charity’s planning and management of fundraising events in the long term and provide strategic advice for its social media and website presence.

Alison said: “Supporting local charities like Blue Smile means that we can make a difference for the community on our doorstep, something that our whole team feels very passionate about. The care and support that Blue Smile provides for children in Cambridgeshire is vital, and its values match our own.”
