DirectionGroup shortlisted twice in the B2B Marketing Awards 2018


Exciting times at DirectionGroup. The shortlists for the International B2B Marketing Awards 2018 have been announced. And we feature in two categories:

  • Best use of digital techniques or technologies – ‘Built for teamwork’, Microsoft

  • Best customer engagement initiative – ‘Remarkable humans’, Kronos

These awards are open to agencies and businesses from across the world. So, it’s no small feat to get shortlisted.

The awards also recognise campaigns that hit the mark in all areas. The judges assess entries according to four criteria:

  • Understanding of objectives
  • Strategic thinking
  • Creativity
  • Effectiveness/results

So, if you make the awards shortlist, it means you’ve created a campaign with real impact.

We’d like to say a big thanks to Sally Elliott at Microsoft and Fred Janssen at Kronos. Behind every great campaign, there’s a great partnership between a client and an agency.

Well done to all the agencies and companies shortlisted for the awards. We look forward to seeing you at the ceremony in November.
