What a fab week we've had! First we hear that as a result of our lovely clients giving some great testimonials to RAR (Recommended Agency Register), we are a recommended agency for the fifth year running. We pride ourselves on delivering great service to our clients and we love this accreditation as it’s a reflection of what our clients think about us. The Recommended Agency Register (RAR) researches UK marketing agencies every 12 months. Using an online questionnaire to capture ratings from clients, it gives a unique picture of customer satisfaction that each supplier achieves. Clients can also subscribe to the site  to view the full list of recommended agencies. Thank you to all our clients who completed the questionnaire and gave us such fantastic feedback.

We also heard that we had been selected as finalists for three awards.

The first is the DADI Award for ‘Best In-house Website or Campaign’ for www.blue-leaf.co.uk/333, supporting Adrian’s recent charity challenge. The winners for this one will be announced on 8th November at a ceremony at the Emirates Stadium in London. You can find all the other finalists here.

We’ve also been shortlisted for ‘Best Digital Business’ and Strategy Director, Rob Smith for ‘Young Entrepreneur of the Year’ in the UK Digital Entrepreneur Awards. The winners will be announced on 16th October at the ceremony at the Hilton Hotel Manchester.

We're really excited to make these shortlists as it's great to be recognised for all the hard work put in by the team. After all, as the cosmetics mogul Mary Kay Ash says, “There are two things people want more than sex and money... recognition and praise."
