As we near the end of 2017 and begin our preparations for Christmas, it is a good time to reflect on and review what has been a very successful and busy year at AM O’Sullivan PR.
This year, the business has more than doubled in size with the appointment of four new team members. In March, Brenda Murphy joined the team as Account Manager; in May, Gill Brohan was appointed Office Manager; Orla Clancy joined AM O’Sullivan PR as Senior Account Manager in September; and Eoin Weldon was appointed Account Manager in October. Our continued success is testament to the fact that a world class business supporting global brands can be based in Cork.
This year, we were delighted to launch our new company website www.amosullivanpr.ie. The website is our online office front and it showcases our business and services. It has a News and Opinion section, which contains clients’ press releases and photographs, and blogs and opinion pieces from the AM O’Sullivan PR team. We have also launched our quarterly ezine, which enhances our digital presence in addition to our social media networks on Twitter and LinkedIn. Our online platforms will keep you updated on AM O’Sullivan PR news and industry updates and they are a great way for us to stay in touch with you.
Awards and recognition
In early 2017, following an independent audit, AM O’Sullivan PR was awarded the PRCA Consultancy Management Standard (CMS) and our team was highly commended for the excellent standard of information provided. The PRCA represents the interests of the top PR consultancies operating in Ireland. Achieving the certification is a real differentiator for PRCA members and an acknowledgement and recognition of the high standard of our work. We are the only consultancy outside of Dublin that is a member of the Public Relations Consultants Associations (PRCA), which places us in a unique position.
In November 2017, we won the Cork Communications Company of the Year award at the Cork Business Awards 2017 for the second year in a row. We were thrilled to receive the award which acknowledges the expertise and ethos of the AM O’Sullivan PR team. Last week, we found out that AM O’Sullivan PR has been shortlisted in the Best Professional Services Business category for the Cork Business of the Year Awards 2017 hosted by the Cork Business Association. The winner will be announced at the annual dinner and awards ceremony on January 20th, 2018 in the Páirc Uí Chaoimh Conference Centre.
Merry Christmas and best wishes for 2018
Before we begin the new year in 2018, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support during 2017. Our business success is largely down to the ongoing support and commitment that we receive from clients, suppliers, contractors and so many other stakeholders and we sincerely appreciate your interest in our business. To that end, I wish you all a very happy and peaceful Christmas and a prosperous 2018.
Our office will close on Friday, December 22nd, 2017 at 1pm and will reopen on Tuesday, January 2nd, 2018 at 9am.
I look forward to working with you in 2018.
