Shortlist Hat Trick for Co. Down PR and Comms Agency

PR & Communications agency, RNN Communications has been shortlisted for three awards at the Chartered Institute of Public Relations PRide Awards, which are taking place at the Culloden Hotel later in the year.

Headed up by Director and Senior PR Consultant, Riki Neill, the integrated agency will be pitted against the top agencies from across Northern Ireland at the gala event. RNN Communications will be hoping to retain its winning ways following success at the awards in previous years, including being named as Outstanding Small Public Relations Agency at the awards in 2015, a title the agency is once again shortlisted for.

Client campaigns for Northern Ireland’s largest hospitality and foodservice trade event, IFEX and the World Butchers’ Challenge have been shortlisted in the categories of Corporate and Business Communications Campaign and Best Use of Media Relations.

“Having won Outstanding Small Consultancy of the year at the CIPR awards in 2015 and been recognised at the 2016 and 2017 awards, it’s a real honour for our team be acknowledged for the quality of our work, and as one of the best PR & Comms agencies in Northern Ireland,” comments Director of RNN Communications, Riki Neill.

“We’re really proud that from our base in County Down, we deliver integrated and result-focused campaigns for clients across Ireland. From working on some of Ireland’s most high profile events, including the IFTA Gala Television Awards, to managing sponsorships, such as Gala Retail’s partnership with Special Olympics Ireland, we deliver this and more from our eco-office in Ballynahinch,” adds Ms Neill.

PR and Social Media Consultant, Jolene Kelly adds: “We’re privileged to work with some excellent local businesses, including Trackars Healthcare and MB McGrady & Co. Chartered Accountants, and it’s this local support, coupled with big brand names, that help the agency to grow year-on-year.

“In the past year, we’ve also grown our social media division substantially and we remain committed to delivering the best campaigns for clients in the North and South of Ireland, both on and offline.”

Now in its 15th year, the CIPR PRide Awards are the most credible UK-wide awards in the public relations industry. The awards recognise and celebrate outstanding campaigns, PR professionals and teams across the UK.

The team at RNN Communications includes PR and Social Media Consultant, Jolene Kelly; PR and Communications Consultant, Jill McLernon and Founder, Riki Neill, in addition to a pool of creatives with specialisms in photography, videography and graphic design.

Working with global brands, indigenous Irish companies and SMEs across Ireland, RNN Comms delivers solutions for clients, through intelligent, creative and engaging communications across three divisions: RNN Comms, RNN Green and RNN Digital.
