2020 started positively for Gekko with renewed campaigns and new clients and a sense of optimism for the year ahead. In the first week of March we were recognised as the Marketing & PR Agency of the Year at the PCR Awards.
Lockdown put paid to many plans and campaigns but having anticipated some of what lay ahead, we were quick to put measures in place to support our clients in new and creative ways and above all to keep our teams safe.
Gekko decided it would adapt – we would be resilient, we would innovate and invest, all with a view to getting our teams back to work as soon as possible, and putting their concerns at the heart of what we do – and in doing so doing our bit to get the nation and the marketing industry back on its feet.
Now that non-essential retail has been reopening over the past weeks and our campaigns involving field teams have been heading back in-store to support our brands and the retailers, we’re proud of what we’ve done to make this happen. Over the coming weeks we’ll publish a series of posts outlining what we’ve been up to supporting our brands, our people, retailers and ultimately consumers as they’ve shopped initially online and in recent weeks back in stores.
Speak to us and find out how working for and with an agency that has shown resilience, and demonstrated ability and experience in supporting our people and our clients over the past five months.
