A Look Back at 2017

It has been a phenomenal year for the team here at Plinkfizz to say the least. Our numbers have grown to 16 and we’ve celebrated some amazing award wins. We’ve had something to celebrate almost monthly. As well as our fantastic team, we wouldn’t be enjoying an exceptional 14th year without our brilliant clients.

Here’s a few milestones from 2017

A number of Plinkfizz clients were nominated at The Sentinel Business Awards across several categories with a few taking home gold. We at Plinkfizz were able to celebrate our client’s successes with them and had many internal celebrations too.

We’ve been ranked within the Prolific North Top 50 PR agencies for the third year running and we’re the only agency in Staffordshire to feature. We look to maintain this much coveted position in 2018.


We won Best Small Agency at The Northern Marketing Awards which was a real achievement as we were pitted against the best in our sector. We will continue to provide award winning work to our clients moving into 2018.

Following years of working within the education sector, we were thrilled to achieve exceptional results for one of our clients which led to a win at the CiPR awards under the Best Integrated Campaign. Our two consecutive wins verify that the work we deliver on a campaign level and as an agency is second to none as confirmed by two of the most influential publishers in our industry.

Throughout the summer, to accommodate increasing client work, Plinkfizz recruited three new staff members to help boost the agency to the next level. With a wealth of experience from different backgrounds, this recruitment drive has been the most substantial to-date and complements our significant growth throughout 2017.

Perhaps one of the biggest achievements for Plinkfizz this year has been the office move. From fully serviced offices to Plinkfizz owned premises, our MD Fiona has taken the team to a place that Plinkfizz can call home. The new ownership of premises has led to the introduction of Jasper, the office dog who is on hand to keep us all on a tight leash.
