The SEC Newgate Group, of which we are a part, has been nominated for the PRovoke Media EMEA Awards. We will compete for the title of “Public Affairs Consultancy of the Year” with four other network and independent agencies. The competition will be settled on March 23 during the EMEA SABER Awards 2023 gala in Frankfurt am Main.
The SEC Newgate group has 52 offices on five continents, and in EMEA alone: seven offices in Italy, eight in the UK, a large PA and lobbying agency in Brussels, as well as strong offices in France, Germany and Spain and a hub for the Middle East East in Dubai. In Poland, SEC Newgate CEE consists of a team of 50 consultants today, 60% of whom specialise in Corporate & Public Affairs consulting and projects in financial communication and crisis matters.
EMEA PR Consultancies of the Year 2023, according to Provoke Media, is the result of an exhaustive research process involving over 200 submissions and meetings with the best PR firms from the UK, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
