Each month, the Rostrum team gets together (both in person and virtually), for our ‘Hit of the Month’ and ‘Bit of the Month’ competitions as a way of celebrating all our hard work and achievements. Our account teams nominate a piece of coverage (‘hit’) or activity (‘bit’) that they are proud of, and winners are crowned based on how well the results meet the needs and briefs of our clients. The competition is also a great opportunity for the team to share best practice and top tips, which in turn help to generate even more fantastic results the following month. Without further ado, the winners for October are: 

Hit of the Month winner: Penfold in The Independent  

October was another fantastic month for coverage, with account teams securing coverage in publications from Reuters and The Telegraph to Financial News. However, after considerable deliberation, our Penfold team were crowned the winners for their brilliant comments in The Independent from spokesperson Georgia Burke on the importance of millennials saving into their pensions 

Penfold is one of Rostrum’s newest accounts, and it was fantastic for the team to achieve national coverage for them within the first month of working together. The article has also been syndicated 14 times in regional newspapers. 

Congratulations, team Penfold! 

Bit of the month winner: Cleary Gottlieb’s ‘Emerging Markets Debt Restructuring: Deferred, Not Cancelled’ project 

October’s Bit of the Month award recognised the super work produced by team Cleary Gottlieb during their recent project on ‘Emerging Markets Debt Restructuring: Deferred, Not Cancelled’ 

Rostrum’s PR and design teams worked closely together to produce the report and the project was a great example of the power of content marketing to generate good quality leads.  

As always, our winners get to choose their prize. They can either play it safe and take a £10 Deliveroo voucher, or they can spin the wheel of fortune for the chance to double the voucher to £20 or risk coming away with a banana! This month, both teams spun the wheel, with team Penfold winning coffee and juice vouchers and team Cleary Gottlieb taking home a bottle of bubbly each.   

Congratulations again to all our amazing winners!
