Last week during the PRSA Counselors Academy conference, I was talking with other agency owners about the nature of our business not allowing much time for celebration of our successes because we rush from one deadline to the next. When I was creating the prosperity plan to launch Clairemont, I put in writing that we would take time to stop and do just that — celebrate our wins. So, despite the fact that Josie has already blogged about Clairemont’s night at the NCPRSA InSpire Awards, I want to recognize the hard work of our team, coupled with that of our incredible clients who share in the honors.
I’ve blogged before that an early mark of Clairemont’s success in setting out to effectively blend traditional communications and social media is the fact that all of our ongoing clients do in fact rely on us for this blend. Now, as another mark of accomplishment, our work has been recognized including best in category awards for Integrated Communications with Briar Chapel, Social Media with Thomasville, Websites/Blog with Drexel Heritage and Brochures with Drexel Heritage. Additionally, we received awards for events, community relations and a social media audit — with a grand total of 14 NCPRSA InSpire Awards. Not bad based on Clairemont’s first year in business, and the first time we were eligible to enter!
Thanks to our clients for giving us the opportunity to build such amazing programs with them and to the Clairemont team members who worked so diligently on the quality execution of our client strategies and the preparing of our award entries. Cheers!
