As it’s coming to the end of November, we’re getting in the festive spirit and thought we’d share some exciting news and updates with our ‘quality over quantity’ network of contacts!

At last week’s Chartered Institute of Public Relations’ (CIPR) Yorkshire & Lincolnshire PRide Awards, we won our ninth and 10th awards in our seven year history. We got Gold in the Best Use of Content category for our work with SME manufacturer Nova Tissue and Silver in the Outstanding Young Communicator category for our Account Manager Chloe Greenwood who celebrated her fifth anniversary at Engage Comms earlier this year. Read more here about our awards success and read on for some other updates…

Sending your contacts a corporate Christmas card?
You’ll soon be receiving our 2019 Christmas card with our very own version of the 12 days of Christmas (see below). If you’d like us to do a version for your business to remind all your staff, customers and contacts what you have to offer, let us know!

Video content doesn’t have to ‘cost the earth’!
While we work with professional videographers to create high end corporate video content, we know that the budget isn’t always there for full day shoots and professional production/editing. So, we’re now offering a cheaper alternative. Get in touch to find out more.

2020: The year SMEs embrace internal comms
Since winning the Best Internal Communications Campaign at last year’s CIPR PRide Awards, we’ve been on a mission in 2019 to help mid-sized, ambitious organisations embrace strategic internal communications to lay the foundations for long term, sustainable growth.

Back in May 2019, we launched the ‘Internal Comms Network North‘ with an event about aligning your external and internal brand communications, which was followed up with a panel session on ‘breaking through the growth ceiling’ in September 2019.

The Network now has more than 50 members, made up of senior leaders of Northern SMEs and we predict that 2020 will be the year that internal communications will be recognised for its business growth potential. Talk to us about where to start.

Engage Comms listed as a Trade Association Forum supplier
Thanks to our work with membership organisations including the Money Advice Liaison Group (MALG) and the British Association of Construction Heads (BACH), we’ve been added to the Trade Association Forum’s (TAF) suppliers list for B2B marketing services.

Read our Director Helen’s blog summarising the work we’ve done with the Credit Services Association (CSA) over the last six years to ‘take the fear out of debt collection’.

Holding an event in 2020? We’ll maximise it

Beautiful brochures
Finally, we wanted to remind you that we’re not just a digital agency. We’re more interested in the content than the channel and when it comes to talking to your audiences, we’ll use whatever format works best. That can often include high quality print.

Here’s a recent brochure for our steel sculpture client which features striking images, narrative and case studies designed to engage potential commercial and public sector clients.
