Awards, Awards, Awards!

December 10, 2019

We have a couple of Toffee’s who have had to reinforce their awards shelf after this weekend!

The Biscuit Factory played host to the annual CIPR PRide Awards on Friday evening for the 5th year running. If you’re not in the know, a CIPR award is the gold star of recognition for being an industry leader in the Public Relations realm. The awards cover nineteen categories including Corporate and Business Communications Campaign, Best use of Social Media, Best Event and Best Publication.

Based at Toffee Factory since 2012, Cool Blue Communications have been regulars at the awards and have done extremely well every year. They went home with the Outstanding Public Relations Consultancy 2019 award!  ‘It’s the third time our PR team has won the top prize at the CIPR North East awards, which is great as they are a dedicated and talented bunch and deserve to see their work celebrated. One of their key strengths is that they are always innovating and working with our brand and digital teams to find smart ways of delivering success for our clients and our wider business. Top effort!’  Tanya Garland, Managing Director, Cool Blue Communications.

W North moved in three years ago and has gone from strength to strength, steadily expanding whilst being based at Toffee Factory. They collected four gold and one silver award at this years event! Christian Cerisola, Head of W North, said of his firm’s wins ‘Entrepreneurial spirit and big ambition are the backbone of the company and is what gives us the drive to deliver best in class, award winning campaigns for our clients. It’s a pleasure to be recognised as one of the leading agencies in the North East and it is a testament to the brilliant team we’ve been able to build here.’
