Tuesday’s EMEA Sabre Awards was a night of fantastic success for FTI Consulting. We were named EMEA Public Affairs Consultancy of the Year, won the Sabre Gold in Energy & Natural Resources for our Shale Gas Europe campaign, and were awarded a Certificate of Excellence for our work for the Global Slavery Index. And to crown it all off, the Shale Gas Europe campaign was also one of the five “exceptional campaigns” – and the only corporate campaign – shortlisted for the overall Best in Class Platinum award. Of course we were there in strength – and voice: on top of our string of accolades, our table was designated ‘loudest cheer of the night’ on the ceremony organisers’ twitter feed.
These awards are resounding recognition of the creativity and drive our teams brings to our clients, and makes me extremely proud of our team in Brussels and our firm as a whole. I’m thrilled that our hard work in developing and building out our EMEA PA practice has been so publically acknowledged. To go from relative unknown to best in class in these few short years is an amazing achievement of which our whole EMEA PA team is rightly proud. We now have a robust and ever-growing public affairs offering across our offices in Brussels, London, Berlin, Paris, Dublin, Moscow, Dubai, Johannesburg and Cape Town, as well as in other key global markets in the Americas, Asia and Australasia.
And of course we would never have achieved what we have without the support and confidence of our clients: to you I offer a special word of thanks. While it is extremely gratifying to receive such third-party recognition from our industry colleagues, it is the everyday recognition that we receive from our clients that makes such success possible. Thank you again for choosing us. May we continue to work together for a long time to come.
