It’s A Holme Run – Two Years Running

It’s been a good week at Babel HQ and one that hints at a slight bit of Déjà vu. For the second year running, we’ve been included in The Holmes Report, World PR Report as demonstrating strong growth and an eye for innovation. We’re also the only UK agency in the ‘Best Of The Rest List’.

To add to this good news, PR Week also published its Top 150 UK PR Consultancies  list this week, and Babel has jumped up a couple of spots from last year’s position. Out of all agencies in the UK, regardless of sector, we’re currently #128 on the table. We’ll now be keeping our eyes wide open for PR Week’s Top 40 Tech agency list, which is due to be published in the coming weeks.

In a previous blog post, Ian revealed the secret to our success (or cake, as he described it) and the same still remains true today:

“Pre-heat oven. Employ really smart people and treat them well. Give (sometimes brutally) honest advice. Produce lots of good content and target that content accurately. Work bloody hard but remember to play just as hard (also remember that, no matter what, you have to turn up in the morning). Don’t make excuses – if you say you’re going to produce something, damn well produce it. Avoid fluff (this industry is full of it and just because it’s fashionable, it doesn’t mean it’s actually going to work). Bake at 180 C until done. Remove from oven and spread icing carefully.”

Of course, aside from having a great team here, this industry recognition or growth wouldn’t have been achievable without the clients who have chosen Babel as their PR agency. So thank you, not only to those we have worked with for years now, but also the new additions to the Babel stable.

With the recent opening of our new US office in San Francisco, it’s an incredibly exciting time for all of the Babel team, and we’re eager to see what the next 12 months hold. We look forward to next year’s World PR Report and PR Week Top 150 list, where hopefully we’ll be recognised for even stronger growth and further innovation.

Technology, media and telecoms is a really great sector to work in, with the pace of its developments and the ever changing nature of it, so we’re keen to welcome even more clients who would like our help. If you need support from our strong growing and innovative agency, then please get in touch. We’d love to work with you.
