The Cision team at the AMEC Awards


Timo Thomann-Rompf, COO of Cision Insights, said: “I am thrilled Cision had such a successful night at the AMEC Awards. Securing the highest number of awards of any organisation – plus being namechecked on two more – is a huge honour, as is being awarded a Platinum Grand Prix award.

“Both the number and quality of these awards demonstrates the great work that our Cision Insights team deliver for clients. They are testament to people behind Cision Insights and I couldn’t be prouder of every single one of them for helping us to secure these wins. In particular, the work which Cision Insights’ Slimming World team put into measuring the Carbfusioncampaign is deservedly reflected in their success.”

Jenny Caven, head of external affairs, Slimming World, added: “I’m thrilled that we’ve won gold at the AMEC awards for the third year in a row for our work with Cision, and winning a Grand Prix award really is a defining moment for us. It demonstrates that the Slimming World/Cision collaboration is among the best out there in the industry when it comes to measurement.”

“Working together has enabled us to focus on what really matters: understanding how our earned media strategy is maximising the quality of exposure across multiple channels and ensuring better integration across earned and shared media. We have better insight too into how this is influencing audience perception and contributing to our mission to help people live healthier and happier lives and achieve their dreams.”
