Pier: PR Consultancy of the Year 2023

Clutching the trio of gold trophies, CEO (and proud mother of twins) Kate Bowden Smith was heard to remark: "I'm used to holding twins, not triplets!" A fantastic evening celebrating a landmark win for Pier.

We won!! What a fantastic night for Pier at the regional CIPR PRide Awards. We took home the two top agency awards – PR Consultancy of the Year and Small PR Consultancy of the Year. Incredible!

Pier created and delivered campaign ‘Decluttering with Dilly’ for HIPPO, which scooped Gold in Consumer Relations Campaign, another major category at the awards. Pier’s trade PR launch for Saputo Dairy UK’s Cathedral City Plant Based received silver in Corporate and Business Communications Campaign and Best Use of Media Relations.

The CIPR PRide Awards recognises exceptional communications in the Anglia, Thames and Chiltern region. The ceremony took place at the Clayton Hotel in Cambridge on Thursday 28th September 2023.

Judges’ comments on Pier’s PR Consultancy of the Year win included: “A truly remarkable submission: clear, concise, showing clear well-focused strategy and ambitious growth coupled with the due attention to the ESG performance, impressive commitment to CPD, very good recent achievements.”

Over the past year Pier has been shortlisted for multiple national awards, including best Small PR Consultancy of the Year at the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) Excellence Awards, Medium Consultancy of the Year in the PRCA Dare Awards and Best Agency to Work For (small) at the UK Company Culture Awards.

Thanks to all our clients, suppliers and friends – we are hugely grateful for all your support.
