 A message from Richard

Hello from 2024! It has been a busy two months here at Sapience, with new clients, new hires, and new award nominations to add to our ever expanding award cabinet.

It is always a pleasure to update you all on our latest activities and it has been a busy period for us. This week, we were named a finalist in the PRCA City and Financial Awards, while the Burgh Island team were treated to a few days in the iconic art deco hotel earlier this month.

Read on to find out more – and I trust this edition of Salience will be a compelling read for you all.

Client updates

Burgh Island Hotel

Our client Burgh Island Hotel kindly hosted the Sapience team in Devon for two nights in February. The team brainstormed marketing and communications strategies with the hotel’s staff, while learning more about the island’s history, art, and plants (as well as a few ghost stories!)

Edison Group

This week, we were delighted to announce that we were named a finalist in the PRCA City and Financial Awards, recognising the outstanding work that we’ve done for our client, Edison Group. Congratulations to our fellow shortlisted contenders; may the most deserving candidate win!

Zayed Spotlight

Last month we began working with The Zayed Sustainability Prize, the UAE’s pioneering global sustainability and humanitarian award.

The 2025 cycle is now open for submissions until June 23 2024, with small to medium enterprises (SMEs), non-profit organisations (NPOs) and high schools with sustainable solutions being invited to submit an entry for consideration in one of the six categories of: Heath, Food, Energy, Water, Climate Action and Global High Schools.

Reviving our communities

Last month, Richard and Account Director, Shubhi Grover, attended an event hosted by Shaylesh Patel, Director of ASTOP and leader of Ban Box Shifting, in Houndsditch. The panel, titled ‘Reviving Our Communities’, served as a platform for businesses, charities, policymakers and landlords to discuss business rates and the future of our country’s high streets.

The Ban Box Shifting movement against business rates avoidance was backed by a motion from the London Assembly in November, and now has over 100 signatures from MPs and councillors.

Meet the team 

Welcome to our newest team member Shubhi! She joins us as an Account Director from an international media and marketing business in London, managing projects across APAC, US, UK, and Europe, with previous experience in PR at a variety of leading businesses in India.

Meet the client 

Introducing one of our new clients, Janine Stone & Co, a leading luxury interior design and architecture specialist. We recently helped launched a new service, Clarity, aimed at giving prospective buyers a comprehensive appraisal of a property prior to purchase and renovation.


LinkedIn has become a staple social media platform for personal professional development. With over 774 million users, it is increasingly difficult to cut through the noise to maximise the impact of your posts. Here are our top tips for doing just that:

Here at Sapience, we’re always keen to push ourselves and exceed expectations. It is little wonder then, that we all found the story of Clive the Godwit, a small migratory bird which flew a round trip of nearly 2,500 miles from Norfolk to Spain and back in four days so intriguing, stunning experts in the process.


We’re PR professionals, of course we hop on the latest trends… as you can see 💁🏻‍♀️

Special shoutouts to Shubhi and Steve for their innovative approaches!
