BHM, WPP, others nominated for “Africa Consultancy Of The Year” Award

BlackHouse Media (BHM) has emerged a finalist for the ‘Africa Consultancy of the Year’ award for the second year running at the annual SABRE Awards EMEA.

The public relations and communications company has been nominated alongside global industry heavyweights like BCW (WPP), Clockwork, Edelman and Razor (M&C Saatchi).

Organised by PRovoke Media and recognised as one of the world’s largest and most sought after public relations awards, SABRE Awards are based on an exhaustive research process and a careful review of the performance of more than 400 firms worldwide.

Arun Sudhaman, CEO and Editor-in-Chief, PRovoke Media, says:

“Since its launch in 2006, BHM has grown into a US$3.7m operation offering clients a range of services. Growth of 37% in USD terms would satisfy most people but does not tell the full story of BHM’s expansion, which actually reached 87% on a constant currency basis. Driving that performance is the firm’s broad range of capabilities, which includes in-house content, software engineering, media brands, digital analytics and regional advisory.”

“BHM launched the Africa PR and Comms report this year, in partnership with the CIPR, PRCA and ICCO — reflecting the firm’s focus on building a strong knowledge base for public relations in its home continent. The firm’s analytics capabilities paid off with the Diamond SABRE for MTN’s stakeholder engagement efforts at this year’s SABRE Africa Awards, while there was also eye-catching work for Coca-Cola’s World Without Waste initiative, Big Brother Naija, the Global Day of Influence and Project Safe-Up.”

BHM was also nominated across other categories including Capital Markets Communications, Corporate Social Responsibility, Crisis Management, and Geographic categories for the ‘MTN Public Offer’, ‘Coca-Cola World Without Waste’, ‘MTN & Banks – USSD’, and the ‘Project Safe Up – My World of Bags’ campaigns, respectively.

Acknowledging the nominations, Ayeni Adekunle, founder and CEO, says, “It’s an honour to be nominated again at this year’s SABRE Awards, and we are truly delighted for the wins. We consider this recognition as a testament to the collective effort of our people, clients and partners.”

The 2022 SABRE Awards EMEA winners will be unveiled at a ceremony set to hold at The Guildhall in London on May 27, 2022.
