W+K London wins IPA CPD Gold

Yesterday we descended upon London Bankside’s Hilton to proudly accept the IPA Continuous Professional Development (CPD) Gold Accreditation.

This is the third year in a row we’ve picked up the accolade which, according to the IPA, is awarded to agencies which “demonstrate that CPD lies at the heart of their business, building a strong learning culture, in support of real business objectives and the development of their employees professionally and personally”.

A special thanks to Lead HR Manager Amy Dunlop for pulling the successful submission together.

Fast Company names W+K most innovative advertising company

Wieden+Kennedy has been named Fast Company’s most innovative company within the advertising and marketing sector. According to the publication, we topped the list, up from eighth place in 2017, thanks to a “run of compelling work”.

“Built on a foundation of its advertising work for Nike over the last 35 years, Wieden+Kennedy has become synonymous with iconic campaigns,” said Fast Company. “While flashy digital and social media campaigns may grab more headlines in today’s advertising world, there’s still plenty of innovation happening around good ol’ fashioned TV commercials – and agency Wieden+Kennedy is a master of the craft.”
