At the recent annual meeting of the International Public Relations Network (IPRN) we were delighted to receive the award for ‘Agency of the Year’. The award judged a number of different agencies on everything from productivity, to company culture and collaborative spirit.

The judges particularly applauded our work in arranging the Regional European Conference in London last November. The full day event had record attendance with over 43 delegates, from 29 agencies and 21 countries – including members from Russia, the USA and Saudi Arabia. We worked in partnership with our fellow UK members to develop an agenda of key topics impacting our industry, and secured a keynote speaker – BBC Journalist Adam Kirtley who talked about ‘The changing media landscape’.

Liz D’Oliveira, Redwood Consulting co-founder and COO, said: “We have always prided ourselves in the fact that our work is not defined by borders and the last year has shown how collaboration is more important than ever. We put great value on our partnership with the IPRN so are delighted to have won this award. Our whole team of communications specialists have worked very hard to make Redwood this smart, nimble agency that delivers exceptional results as the UK’s leading real estate comms agency. We want to thank our clients who have trusted us throughout the years and continue to give us the opportunity to work on so many interesting and challenging projects.”
