Boston makes a strong showing at the Sabre Awards

Last night The Holmes Report held its annual Sabre Awards dinner at Cipriani's in New York City. The Sabre's are one of the most prestigious awards in the PR industry and it is an honor to be a finalist, let alone win.

I am an agency guy, so my attention was on the agencies...and Boston represented well at the Sabres. No one agency dominated and that is a testament to the great work PR pros in Boston are doing.

Shift Communications was named New Media Agency of the Year. Congratulations to Todd Defren and his gang. They have done a lot in this area and it is a well deserved honor. Shift was also a finalist for a Silver Sabre.

Racepoint won a Silver Sabre for their work on behalf of NeuroLogica - Scan on Demand.

Schwartz Communications (and some of my teams) also did well. Schwartz took home a Gold Sabre for its work on behalf of Digication, a small tech startup in Rhode Island. What makes this especially compelling is it beat out Hitachi, New York Life and Rubbermaid to win. Schwartz was also a finalist for a Bronze Sabre.

It just goes to show you, the awards do not always go to the multinationals. If you do go work for your client, submit it.

I saw Greenough and a few others among the finalists as well. If I left your name out, my apologies. Leave a comment on send me some pictures and I will add them or likes to them. I try to know all PR people in Boston, but I am sure there are some I missed. And for agencies with offices around the country, unless I know the work was done out of Boston...I did not mention it.

Congratulations again to all the winners.

Award season is upon us. The Bell Ringers are in a few weeks and the Silver Anvils follow in early June.

    Thanks for the compliment but Racepoint won a Silver SABRE in the Non-Profit category for our work on behalf One Laptop per Child. Our entry for NeuroLogica was a finalist in the Medical Device category. Anyway it was a great night and fabulous to see the recognition for Boston PR.

    You know, people each time manufacture comments when anything is predicted to come to pass in 2012, like “fairly that is if the faction is hush here.” You do understand that the Mayans predict the faction will end on Dec. 21 (or 23rd)? So in all strong if anything is booming to take place in 2012 there is solitary the slimmest conceivability that the world will contain ended already it happens.

    Marketing is not about tricking people to want things as may
    have been in the past, the modern consumer, Internet-savvy companies actually invited into their lives to talk to them if they offer something relevant and useful to them, through
    the following on Twitter or "taste" of your Facebook page.
    Get back, perhaps the lowest firms are able to get

    Find out as much as possible about each company
    you get to quote because that will help you to decide whether they are right for your particular.
    They even remove small items like furniture, boxes, and light removals of bed sits.
    But the processes involved in packing and moving do not simply start and end with
    these companies.

    Harking back to William the Conqueror's invasion in 1066, this very famous tower has seen many executions, including Anne Boleyn (second wife of King Henry VIII). There are websites that offer free i - Phone apps but you generally have to pay for good apps. The plans were latter abandoned following agitations from Equity, the Musicians' Union and theatre owners under the Save London Theatres Campaign.
