Genesis is delighted to have flown the flag for PR agencies in Suffolk and the East of England at the national Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) Excellence Awards, which took place in London on 25 June.

We were the only PR agency from our region to be selected as a national finalist for the hotly contested Outstanding Small Public Relations Consultancy of the Year.


We were also punching above our weight in the Public Affairs Campaign of the Year category, being selected as a national finalist for our work with OFTEC, the trade body for the oil heating industry.  Our campaign is influencing the Government’s acceptance of biofuels as part of their decarbonisation policy development, thereby protecting the industry’s future and jobs, and providing consumer choice.


The CIPR Excellence Awards reward best practice in public relations, with the category for Outstanding Small Public Relations Consultancy recognising the achievements, performance and excellent work of consultancies with an annual fee income of less than £1 million. The category is judged on performance over a three-year period.


Penny Arbuthnot, director at Genesis, said: “Genesis’ reputation is built on creating and delivering outcome-focused integrated PR and digital communications to achieve tangible value for our clients, made possible by our talented team and company culture. Our focus on staying ahead of the digital revolution, coupled with our level-headed creativity and passion for what we do, has resulted in success for our clients and ourselves.”


The winners of 31 categories were announced at a black-tie event attended by PR professionals on Tuesday 25 June in London, hosted by TV and radio broadcaster Jeremy Vine.


Emma Leech, CIPR President, said at the awards: “Our profession is making its mark on business and society. Our work makes a genuine impact on society, just as it does on business. The next time you hear the value of PR questioned, point to these winners as an example of the exceptional contribution our industry delivers for its clients and organisations. Congratulations to each of our winners and shortlisted entrants”.


Genesis works with clients across a variety of sectors, delivering strategic, integrated marketing communications through PR, social media, SEO and digital marketing, as well as other services.
