Viva wins three marketing awards

PR agency Viva has won three awards at the CIPR’s North West Pride Awards.

The CIPR Pride Awards recognise excellence in public relations and communications. The Rossendale firm won two gold awards for its “Burnley: The Coolest Place in the North West” campaign, and won the Outstanding Small Public Relations Consultancy award.

Judges said: “Viva had an incredibly clear and very ambitious business strategy which they are on track to deliver. They are combining the creation of a happy and stimulating workplace with a substantial commitment to continuing professional development for the team to support the delivery of their strategy. It’s clearly paying off as an impressive range of new clients have joined its roster.”

Tony Garner, managing director of Viva, said: “Viva set itself very clear objectives for this year around delivering tangible results for clients. As a result, we have won a series of new business accounts in 2019 worth more than £120,000 and we have also won prestigious project work.

“Our retention rate has improved, and all our key and medium clients have been retained. We are living proof that you don’t need a city centre postcode to achieve great results for your clients.”

Earlier this year, Viva was named the North’s Small PR Consultancy of the Year 2019 by industry body the PRCA.
