We use our tried-and-tested approach to writing award entries which deliver, on average, more than 80% success in getting you on to the shortlist. Around half of our finalists take home a prize, and we’ve helped clients scoop regional, national and international awards.
We’ll refine your story to produce an entry that puts you in the best possible position. We play critical friend, providing an outside-in view of your project or business which helps make the strongest case.
Some of the UK’s largest and best-known brands trust our expertise. And our chief wordsmith, Louise Turner, has even published a book about how to write winning entries (which is itself on the shortlist for Best Business Book 2021).
