“The only thing that matters in communications is reaching audiences with strong and convincing messages and generating belief, not any sort of standard execution or “best practices” that are anything but. This is especially true today, when people – audiences, reporters, analysts – are so over-solicited with content, and when many traditional approaches have lost any traction they once had. The team at CCgroup understand that, and are both innovative and relentlessly goal-oriented in their efforts. They are also the best partners a client could ever have: helping drive imagination, forthright in their feedback, courageous in opposing bad ideas. I can’t imagine our program without them.”
Patrick Van de Wille, Chief Communications Officer, InterDigital

We work with a number of leading PR and communications consultancies across the UK. Part of our role is to track what good looks like in terms of service delivery and we do this by means of our aggregate performance data.  

CCgroup’s results for 2016 really stood out for us. The agency beat our ‘Willingness to recommend’ aggregate by 20 percentage points. CCgroup also surpassed its immediate competition with extremely strong scores in the ability to provide strategic counsel and advice to its client portfolio. This is traditionally an area where Agencies fall down.  CCgroup bucked the trend with a 23 percentage point lead above the industry average in this category.  

In all, a very impressive performance all round.
Imogen Osborne, Co-Founder, Question & Retain

The judges gave the campaign a ‘perfect 20’ score, describing it as: “excellent, comprehensive research to identify an important issue with very specific, measurable and connected outcomes. A case study that students should read to realize the subject matter doesn’t have to be sexy to have good work recognized”. 
Silver Anvil, Judges 2017
