Hill+Knowlton Strategies Japan secured Consultancy of the Year at the PR Week Asia Awards 2016. The awards event brings together the cream of the PR industry and recognises the most inspiring and successful campaigns, companies and individuals in Asia-Pacific’s communication industry.
Now in its 15th year, the PR Week Asia Awards’ mandate is to champion cutting-edge thinking and progressive work displayed by communicators and agencies throughout the Asia-Pacific region.
H+K Strategies Japan secured the prestigious Japan/Korea PR Consultancy of the Year, an award that is judged on business performance and the ability to retain and grow clients and talent. It was H+K Japan’s “Transformation Strategy” that won praise from the PR Award judges. John Morgan, Hill+Knowlton Strategies President and CEO of Asia and Japan, comments, “In 2015, we made a strategic commitment to approach the business differently, to boldly diversify from our traditional “bread and butter PR” offering, and to invest in talents with skill sets outside the standard pedigree which we believed would lift us back to the top ranks of the industry.”
Commenting on the award win, Morgan adds “During the past year, we have enjoyed the most successful new business track record in over a decade, growing revenue by over one third. Japan is one of the world’s most challenging yet exciting places to do business, and we’re delighted to be acknowledged as the leading communications consultancy in the country”.
The awards ceremony saw further success for Hill+Knowlton Strategies as they celebrated a Silver awarded to H+K Australia for Take Heart Australia (THA) in the Public Education Campaign of the Year category. Take Heart is a public awareness campaign relaying Australia’s dismal statistics when it comes to Sudden Cardiac Arrest, and telling everyday Aussies how they individually have the power to change them.
