Wow, we’ve got some great news to tell you all! Last night Managing Director Ant and Senior Marketing Manager Lee went to the prestigious Grosvenor House Hotel in London for the highly coveted CIM Marketing Excellence Awards.

CIM Awards Night

The CIM Marketing Excellence awards are run by the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) which is one of the largest professional marketing bodies on the planet. The Marketing Excellence Awards seek to find and celebrate outstanding marketing campaigns.

We were nominated as finalists in both the Agency of the Year and Best Use of Data and Insight – SME categories, and were lucky enough to win both! As a Kent based agency, this is a big achievement for us. Not only did we come home with two very shiny awards, but Ant and Lee also managed to get a selfie with Jimmy Carr!

For the Best Use of Data and Insight entry, we used our work with Plan Insurance. Grant Georgiades, Director of Plan Insurance says: “My team and I enjoy working with Sleeping Giant Media. The team are highly informed, diligent and deliver on projects as promised. We’ve seen steady improved in both the conversion performance and SERPS of our site in the last 18 months thanks to their efforts and advice. It’s come as no surprise to me that their services have been recognised with these awards.”

The Agency of the Year award comes as a great result for the agency, marking a fairytale moment for the business.

Ant says, “It’s wonderful to receive this award from the very organisation we first studied with 10 years ago, subsequently leading to the concept of Sleeping Giant Media. We want to say a massive thanks to the organisers and congratulations to the finalists and winners of the night.”
