Coming into work this morning to discover we've been shortlisted in the Best Agency category at the #insidestory awards was a great way to start the day! The awards created by CIPR Inside, the internal communication sector group of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations, aim to recognise organisations for their excellent work in internal communication. The judges have stated that this year’s competition was very strong indeed, so we’re thrilled to have reached the finalist stage. James Harkness, Chair of the CIPR Inside said: “Congratulations to theblueballroom. We have had a fantastic response to the awards. We received a great number of entries and they were of a very high quality. Our judges, experienced industry professionals, have rigorously assessed the entries and today we are very pleased to announce the shortlist. The quality and number of entries show just how much the internal communication profession is growing and moving up the leadership agenda.”

We’d like to wish all the finalists the best of luck and we look forward to joining the celebrations at the award ceremony on the 20 February.
