O Named In Best PR Agency Outside London Category

Newcastle-based O Communications has been shortlisted for the prestigious 2018 PR Week Awards in the Best Agency Outside London category, for the second year running.

After scooping the Best Places to Work Award (Small Business Category) earlier in the year and ranking ninth overall in the region’s Top 50 businesses to work for, the creative communications agency has its eyes firmly on this national prize which recognises client growth, strategy, people development and company culture.

O client list includes Flymo, Goldsmiths, Parkdean Resorts and British Masters and has been revealed by PR Week as one of the top six agencies headquartered outside London.

The news comes following O’s recent £650,000 investment into new office space and hires to gear towards further growth in creative and digital services.

Owner and managing director at O, Kari Owers said: “We are thrilled to be flying the flag for the immense talent and expertise which exists outside of London. We are incredibly proud of our region, it’s absolutely the one to watch in terms of its creative and digital sector and with The Great Exhibition of the North already well underway, there’s an electric buzz in the region at the moment.

“Our entire ethos is all about delivering nationally competitive creative work from right here in Newcastle, so this award is really important to us as it celebrates our business strategy is working.

“We continue to work exceptionally hard to make O a fantastic place to work and staff cultural fit is absolutely at the core of our recruitment ethos. This recognition from PR Week, our industry bible, is testament to our talented people and our clients who continue to be a huge part of this success.

“2018 has been a really exciting year to date with new premises and a number of new hires to the team so far, so we can’t wait to see what the rest of the year holds.”

Each shortlisted agency at the PR Week Awards faced a panel interview and presentation with a judging panel of top industry leaders. The overall winner will be revealed at the awards evening on Tuesday 16 October in London.
