Uppermill’s Pelican Communications was last night awarded ‘Best Small Agency’ at the Northern Marketing Awards.
Held at The Point, Lancashire County Cricket Club, on Thursday 16 October, the awards ceremony was attended by over 400 creative, digital and communications professionals from across the north of England.
Beating stiff competition from seven other businesses, Pelican was commended for its compelling and clear entry which demonstrated an intelligent approach to business planning and a clear investment in the team.
The judges were impressed that the consultancy has a clear focus and delivers excellent results for its clients. They applauded Pelican for listening and reacting to its clients’ audiences, instead of producing what they think they should like. The structure of the business and Pelican’s thoughtful approach made the company stand out.
Managing director of Pelican, Michael Bennett, said: “It’s an honour to be commended for the work we do, especially when there is such strong competition. Not only does the award recognise the results we achieve for our clients, but how we operate as a business, taking into account staff development and progression along with our operational procedures.
