More awards for Impact

Dec, 21 – Impact has had a month of success, winning award after award at the recent Asia-Pacific PR Awards and the Ogilvy PR Professional Achievement Awards.

The Asia-Pacific PR Awards recognise the best work in the communications industry. Now in their 10th year of competition, the awards are dedicated to celebrating outstanding work and across the region. We’re thrilled to announce our win:

Employee Communications Campaign of the Year, Impact & OgilvyEarth – Bayer Australia

The Ogilvy PR Professional Achievement Awards, internal to Ogilvy, were broadcast live to approximately 70 Ogilvy PR offices around the world to celebrate the year’s best client work. A very excited group held down the fort from 1.30 to 3.15am to represent the Australia team.  Australia has a strong track record in these highly sought after internal awards and 2010 was no exception. Impact cleaned up, winning awards in two categories:

  • Crisis Management – Ford Australia: Driving a great result for Australia – Ogilvy PR Australia
  • Internal Communications – Bayer Australia and New Zealand: “Small Changes = Big Change” – Impact Employee Communications

At these awards global CEO, Chris Graves, announced a new award category in honour of David Ogilvy. The Giant Award is for people of any level worldwide who made a giant contribution to our company this year, exhibits and lives the giant characteristics David Ogilvy looked for, and someone who is decent to their colleagues and gives back to the Ogilvy community and society. There are only four of these awards and one of them went to our very own Tam Sandeman, Managing Director of Impact Employee Communcations.

Congratulations to Tam and all the teams involved in the winning campaigns.
