The Best International Agency award is for Edelman Spain the recognition of the last 10 years of excellence in communication and public relations, in a market facing a changing landscape whether is economy, politics or business.
“Of course, winning an award is good for the business. The market acknowledges the good work we’ve done and this is great. We are honoured. On the other hand awards also exert pressure. They raise the bar… the quality bar, the innovation bar, the creativity bar… and this is fairly challenging. Yet, I would say that the best thing about winning an award is when we share it with the team. This is an every-one-of-us award and it’s nice to celebrate it together…. Celebrate we are one, celebrate we love working with each other and celebrate who we are and what we stand for. In this sense, this particular award and every award we have won strengthen our culture and our values, and these are the glue that keeps us together. When we win an award we are closer to the next one.” – said Mr. Jordi Ballera, Director Edelman, Madrid Office.
