Campaign Asia PR Awards Asia 2018 Sinclair

Sinclair’s strategic communications consultation and dedication to team development was recognised at the Campaign Asia PR Awards Asia on 13 June, with wins in three major categories including the highly coveted award for Greater China PR Consultancy of the Year.

The only Greater China-born agency in the field, the significant honour saw Sinclair recognised as a leading independent, Integrated PR consultancy for Asia Pacific, bringing an adaptable and collaborative mindset to strategic holistic communications programmes across industry and sector.

The award also caps off a remarkable year of growth for the independent agency, which now boasts 45 communications consultants across offices in Shanghai and Hong Kong working to create business impact for clients through persuasive storytelling. In addition to significant new client wins and a high percentage of retainer re-signings throughout 2017, the agency launched a new name and brand identity in August as part of a strategic repositioning from a lifestyle-focused agency to a full-service corporate and consumer brand consultancy. The repositioning cemented Sinclair’s reputation as a leading, established agency proven by the calibre of world-leading brands on its client list, as well as a true destination agency for emerging and established talent.
