Surrey-based PR consultant, Lindsey Collumbell, has been recognised for the quality of her work by being shortlisted for a business award by the CIPR (Chartered Institute of Public Relations) in their 2011 Pride Awards.
These awards recognise excellence in public relations across the UK regions. Lindsey Collumbell, founder and director of marketing company Bojangle Communications, has been shortlisted as the Best Freelance Practitioner across the Home Counties South region. In fact, she is the only entrant to have made it to the shortlist for this category!
“Being recognised for the quality of my work by my peers is a great feeling,” says Lindsey Collumbell. “Working on my own, as I usually do, can be difficult and isolating but to be judged by industry experts on my experience, business objectives and performance against results for my clients tells me I am doing a great job. Being a finalist is a wonderful endorsement of my work and the results I deliver for my clients.”
Jane Wilson, CIPR’s CEO, says: “The CIPR Pride Awards celebrate the best PR work from the profession. To be shortlisted for an Award demonstrates exemplary achievement, impact and value – immediately putting their work in the spotlight.”
Winners from the shortlisted finalists from the Home Counties South region will be announced at a presentation dinner in Brighton on 11th November 2011.
