Mike Robb

Boldspace has been shortlisted as New Consultancy of the Year at the esteemed PRovoke EMEA Consultancies of the Year awards.

The judges said: “Like many firms in this category, it looked like the odds were stacked against Boldspace, which Mike Robb and Nick Ford-Young launched in February 2020 — just weeks before Covid forced the first national UK shutdown. Clearly, however, there was a market for what Boldspace was offering: a new agency model that brings together advertising, marketing, and PR — and flexible with client delivery… the success of which speaks for itself. The co-founders are committed to building culture centered around people, purpose, and sustainability (the latter two of which is reflected in Boldspace’s client roster and being a carbon positive organization).”

Commenting on the nomination, Boldspace Managing Director and Co-founder, Mike Robb, said: “We’ve had an amazing first year as a business and sit here today knowing that our model and mission to consolidate advertising, marketing and PR in a model driven by a Whole World Brand View is something the market wants. We’re incredibly fortunate to have assembled a winning team and set of clients who let us go to work for them every day, and can’t wait to do deliver even more data-driven creative campaigns in year two.”

It was also announced that Boldspace has been nominated at the 2021 SABRE Awards, also run by PRovoke, for Best Social Media / Social Networking Campaign for its work with the Healthcare Workers’ Foundation, which led to a 300-fold increase in donations over the course of the campaign.

The PRovoke and SABRE shortlistings follows the agency’s win at the Campaign Tech Awards for Best Campaign by a Start-up and also New Agency of the Year at the 2021 PR Moment Awards.

Boldspace has now worked with more than 25 clients in a number of sectors including technology, financial services, fintech, healthcare, ecommerce, travel, and energy. The Boldspace team has delivered a wide-range of public relations work for these clients as part of an integrated model that merges advertising, marketing and PR in one, built for challenger brands and ambitious businesses on a mission.
