BECG and Cavendish Advocacy shortlisted at PRWeek Awards

BECG and Cavendish Advocacy, also part of the BECG Group, are delighted to announce they have been shortlisted for two categories at the PRWeek Awards 2021. 

BECG is shortlisted for ‘Mid-sized Consultancy of the Year’, which recognises the best PR consultancies generating annual fees between £5m and £15m. Despite the challenges faced by the COVID-19 pandemic, we proved resilient and focused on adding and improving client service, alongside introducing new services and product support including our Building Safety Unit and Built to Engage. We took pride in our client work and were rewarded when our clients gave us an exceptional NPS score of 79 in our annual client survey.  

Employee wellbeing also remained a core focus, with an inaugural wellbeing week, cycle to work scheme, Fidlleaf, and financial education workshops just a few of the schemes available for employees’ benefit. 

Cavendish Advocacy is shortlisted in the ‘Public Affairs’ category for its campaign with leading housing association, Stonewater. The project – Pushing decarbonisation in housing to the top of the agenda – has highlighted the urgent need to tackle the decarbonisation of social housing, to meet the Government’s net zero target, and has established Stonewater as the go-to housing association on decarbonisation in housing. 

The multi-channel campaign included the publication of a new report by think-tank IPPR, ‘All Hands to the Pump’, securing meetings for Stonewater with Government Ministers and senior civil servants, creating a comprehensive stakeholder engagement programme of MPs and Peers, and establishing the Social Housing Fuel Poverty Working Group with the End Fuel Poverty. It has resulted in millions of pounds of government investment and Stonewater being called to give evidence to parliament twice this year. 

Stephen Pomeroy, BECG Group CEO, said:  

We’re thrilled to be shortlisted for two awards at the prestigious PRWeek Awards 2021. It is a testament to the hard work and dedication from the team and clients over the last year and I look forward to seeing who the winners are in October.

The winners will be announced at the PRWeek Awards 2021 on 20th October. Fingers crossed!
