Connect team shortlisted for Young PR Lions UK Competition

Connect are thrilled that Leonie Blakeway and Will Sexton have been shortlisted for the Young PR Lions competition which aims to find the best young PR professionals in the country.

29 teams from across the UK had 12 hours to respond to a brief set by the Northern Ireland Chest Heart & Stroke (NICHS), which performed as the ‘client’. Seven teams, including Will and Leonie, have been chosen to pitch their ideas to a judging panel this Friday in the hope of representing the UK at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity on 22nd June 2015.

Leonie said:

“This is fantastic opportunity and we have loved the challenge of getting under the skin of the campaign, and putting forward our ideas and creative solutions”.

Laura Blake, Director said:

“Connect has a brilliant team, with great ideas and we are incredibly proud of both Leonie and Will. We’ll be rooting for them in the next stage of the competition, please wish them luck!”.

The International Communications Consultancy Organisation (ICCO) is the sponsor of the Young PR Lions competition to find the most talented young PR team in the world; and the PRCA is responsible for running the UK element of that competition.
