WBD has been shortlisted for four awards at the Managing Partners' Forum (MPF) Management Excellence Awards 2020. These recognise the high profile thought leadership projects and client focused initiatives the firm has delivered in the last 12 months.

The projects shortlisted include the firm's retail sector report The Digital Tipping Point in the 'best thought leadership' category, the firm's Brexit Insights Hub and associated campaigns in the 'best marketing' category, a successful HighQ project in the 'best enhanced solutions for clients' category and also WBD's work on sustainability in the 'best community programme' category.

Organised in collaboration with Harvard Business Review and the Financial Times, the MPF Management Excellence Awards celebrate the contributions and achievements in leadership and management of national and international firms. The award ceremony will take place on 3 March in London bringing together more than 400 senior attendees and over 50 finalists.

Jonathan Blair, UK Managing Partner, said:

"This is great recognition for many of the fantastic projects delivered by our people around the firm during 2019 and beyond. Valuable campaigns close to home, such as thought leadership reports on key sectors like retail and supporting clients with our Brexit initiatives, have seen very positive responses from clients and contacts alike." 

Being recognised for taking an innovative new approach to a client's complex business issue is excellent and I'm also delighted that we've been shortlisted for the progress we have made in sustainability. To be shortlisted for four awards is a tribute to the hard work put in by many people across the firm."
