Summary of work

Winner: Aurora

Aurora – an ongoing success

Aurora, winner of last year’s Communiqué Small Independent Consultancy of the Year Award, is back – bigger, bolder and even more successful. For more than seven years, Aurora has stayed true to its core philosophy: a happy team working with happy clients will deliver great work and result in strong growth. The success of this concept is directly responsible for Aurora outgrowing the ’small’ category and continuing to compete successfully with the big boys of the industry. In 2012, Aurora’s philosophy and business strategy delivered acceleration in profitability, an increased client list and more work with existing clients. These successes also drove expansion of Aurora’s team with twelve new staff. Growth of an organisation can have a negative impact on client satisfaction as well as staff morale and retention. Not at Aurora! Over seven years, only two employees have left Aurora … and one returned after only 16 months. Clients feel the same way and Aurora enjoys year-on-year organic growth, with the majority of new business won without a pitch. Aurora purposely only works with clients that match the agency’s core values and desire to make every initiative the best it can be using Aurora’s expertise in thinking, not just doing.

Judges comments

Aurora is only seven years old, but in that time it has achieved an enormous amount. The team has delivered the most incredible year-on-year growth for the last three years running. And the reason for that success is the success that they have delivered to their clients. Aurora has integrity and a strong company vision and values and is an agency that has consistently delivered on its promise. It’s an organisation that has a clever and different model of working that pushes boundaries. A very well run and happy company, with an outstanding culture that is really paying dividends both for the business and their clients.

Highly commended
