PR Agency Celebrates Shortlisting Success

A local PR consultancy is celebrating success after being shortlisted as one the top four small businesses in the region in the annual Shropshire Chamber of Commerce Business Awards. 

Shrewsbury-based Zen Communications, whose client base includes some of the country’s best loved brands, companies and organisations, has been selected as one of the finalists in the Best Small Business category, which recognises companies who have gained a competitive advantage in their industry and showcased a strong strategic plan for future growth and expansion.

Felicity Wingrove, Managing Director of Zen Communications, explained: “It’s a huge honour to be shortlisted in such a popular and prestigious category and we’re delighted to have been recognised. Growing Zen over the last seven years, during a recession, has not been without its challenges, but armed with a fabulous team of skilled public relations professionals and technically-trained copywriters we’ve seen the business flourish and have helped companies of all sizes – from boutique start-ups, right through to global PLCs.

“Last year, we assessed and evaluated our vision and values and collaboratively defined these as a team, and it’s this culture which has helped us focus on who we’re best able to work with and the clients who best fit our vision. Our experienced in-house team work closely with our clients on a variety of reputation management campaigns and projects, and we’re delighted to have developed such a strong reputation for them, and for ourselves.

“We’re incredibly proud to call Shropshire our home and the whole team are very much looking forward to the awards evening next month, just days after Zen’s seventh birthday. To win certainly would be the icing on the cake but we’re thrilled just to have been recognised,” Felicity concluded.

Zen Communications is a results-driven strategic public relations and copywriting agency. Shropshire-based, but working with clients across the UK and internationally, it is home to a team of technically-trained writers with a proven track record of producing strong, distinctive, and creative copy. With clients spanning a variety of sectors – from construction and property, to professional services, healthcare, and food and drink – the agency works with businesses of all sizes, from sole traders and start-up firms, right the way through to well-established enterprises and FTSE100 companies.
