Grayling awarded Global Public Affairs Agency of the Year 2019

Grayling is delighted to have been awarded Global Public Affairs Agency of the Year 2019 at Wednesday’s Global SABRE Awards gala, hosted by the Holmes Report at The Watergate Hotel, Washington, D.C.  

Grayling was recognised for the growth of its Public Affairs operations, especially in the European region, as well as in building strong strategic partnerships globally. This has led to us delivering outstanding solutions for a range of major international clients.

“We are hugely proud and honoured to have received this prestigious award,” said Russell Patten, Chairman of Grayling Public Affairs. “We are proud because without our best in class consultants, and of course our clients, we would not be here today. More than anything else, it’s a reflection of the quality of the work we deliver to our clients which is focussed on sound research, strategic insight, a clear understanding of our clients’ requirements, and our dedication to implement win-win solutions for the long term.”

From a local market perspective, whether it be in Spain, Washington D.C., Singapore or Bucharest, it is becoming increasingly critical to be part of a global network whilst remaining best in class at the local level. The sun never sets on Grayling!
“The expertise and reach of our teams provide unrivalled value to our clients, who are so often confronted with issues which transcend national boundaries,” stated Ben Petter, Network Director overseeing Grayling’s 11 offices across Central and Eastern Europe. “Our ability to coordinate advocacy campaigns in multiple markets simultaneously means that we can be far more than the sum of our parts.”

Earlier this year, Grayling was named EMEA Public Affairs Consultancy of the Year. The European PA units were also awarded Brexit-related Campaign of the Year (2018) and PA Agency of the Year (2016) as part of the “Public Affairs Awards Europe”, one of the highlights of the Public Affairs calendar. UK office also won the Public Affairs Award for Consultancy of the year 2016.
