“We are very encouraged by this nod from industry peers who have been tasked with unearthing businesses with a different approach to reputation management. But most importantly, to continue to showcase that PR is an important value add for business” says Sylvester Chauke, Chief Architect and founder of the organization.
The organization not only won in a category that celebrates them and their organizational culture but also bagged three other awards for their Steers client, namely: Best Launch of a New Product/Service, a Silver Award for Campaign of the Year and Best Up and coming PR professional to their young professional, Monare Matema.

They believe in a new dawn of young leaders who challenge the boardrooms by demonstrating what is possible when young minds take on boardrooms.
“It was encouraging seeing the calibre of entries and in many ways, we are inspired by what our profession can achieve and by the other fantastic agencies that did truly outstanding work. There is a lot more to be done and we will not stop until the job is done,” concludes Chauke.
