Award programmes: practice makes perfect

Without exception our people have worked on both sides of the agency/supplier fence, which uniquely suits us to craft award entries drawing on the best of both worlds. Moreover, our record in winning award competitions is a reinforcing spiral. We’re getting better and better at it.

From PDFs to videos and infographics we’re expert at content marketing, pushing the envelope with messaging that really counts. And we’ve proved to our customers we have the mettle to run successful awards programmes. This year the numbers are growing and there’s every reason to think we’re likely to top the market.

Working with us

Why should we work with GoRefCo?

Our renowned storytelling skills help win awards for our customers and applause for our people.

What will it be like working together?

chevron

We’re helpful souls who know “how to win friends and influence people” as Dale Carnegie once wrote. Today, we use phrases like the customer experience. We apply those disciplines in the interests of creating highly satisfied customers by understanding their aspirations and fashioning activities they’ll want to own.

How do you work?

chevron

Collaboratively, and in close knit teams, making the most of individuals’ innate and academic skills

Do you offer any kind of promise or guarantee?

We promise each submission will set the bar ever higher in terms of service levels and timely delivery, as evidenced by our success in winning awards.
