CIPR Excellence Award Winners 2015

The CIPR Excellence Awards are an opportunity to celebrate excellence in public relations in the UK. Here’s a list of the 2015 winners.

 1,000 public relations professionals gathered at Old Billingsgate in London tonight for the annual CIPR Excellence Awards. It’s a great location on the north side of the River Thames, on the edge of the City.

The evening was hosted by CIPR President Sarah Pinch and comedian Shappi Khorsandi, star of BBC1’s Live at the Apollo and Have I Got News For You.
