On a winning streak


Crown Paints - NBA awards

Crown Paints at the Lloyds Banks National Business Awards

Crown Paints’ recent achievement at the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards takes the number of winning award entries Shepherd PR  has been involved in up to an incredible 61 accolades.

Over the years we’ve enjoyed success working across a broad spectrum of industries in a variety of award titles, from the Veuve Clicquot Businesswoman of the Year Award to The Manufacturers’ Green Business Awards – and plenty in between. You can check out our awards gallery at

What’s the formula for success? For a start our account handling team, Jane, Jo and Guy, are all former journalists with more than 60 years’ newsroom experience and can craft the content for an award entry together in an engaging, high impact format. Our in-house video team, Kathryn, Jeremy and Conroy, also help the businesses we look after get their story across in film to
really engage with judges. And Soo and Jo make sure all deadlines are met and entries are pulled together in an accurate and timely fashion.

Despite this success, we’ve never entered an award ourselves! We prefer to keep our clients in the spotlight – and with 90 per cent of our business coming from word of mouth recommendations that’s the biggest advert for us.
