THE PR INDUSTRY SURE LIKES US
The Public Relations Global Network is worldwide and they recently awarded Xenophon their 2015 Public Affairs Campaign of the Year, not bad considering we also won the PRGN 2014 Campaign of the Year…and the 2011 Campaign of the Year. We didn’t win in 2012 and 2013, but we were nominated and, like Meryl Streep, you can’t win every year.
And we’ve won tons of other accolades, including the Public Relation Society’s Silver Anvil Award for the top Public Affairs Campaign of the Year… twice… and the Thoth Award “Best of Show…. and an award from PR NEWS for Crisis Management…. Well, you get the idea.
Oh, we almost forgot! Xenophon’s digital team wanted you to know we won PRGN’s 2015 Gold Medal for Digital & Social Communications.
