The EON Group, a Filipino communications consultancy firm, was named the winner of a Gold Stevie® Award for Most Innovative Public Relations Agency of the Year, and a Silver Stevie® Award for Excellence in Innovation in Business Product and Service Industries in the sixth annual Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards today.

More than 900 nominations from organizations across the Asia-Pacific region were considered this year for various categories, and the EON Group won both Gold and Silver in two different categories that recognize best practices on innovation.

“The communications industry is in the midst of a massive disruption, and the move to differentiate ourselves and focus on higher value services is the only logical way forward,” says Mori Rodriguez, EON’s Chief Innovation Officer. “Innovation is a corporate value and we live it in all aspects of the business, from product all the way to talent development.”

While this is EON’s first win at the Stevie Awards, the communications consultancy has been recognised for its innovation by Enterprise Asia, winning an International Innovation Award for Organization and Culture in 2017. Among its list of recent accomplishments is the prestigious International Gold Quill Award in 2018 for the Philippine Trust Index, the company’s proprietary research that looks into the levels and drivers of trust among Filipinos, and Public Affairs Asia’s Gold Standard Award for Public Affairs Consultancy of the Year in 2018.

“We are very pleased that entries to this program grew again this year,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. We extend our warmest congratulations to all of this year’s Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award winners.”

Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” the awards will be presented to the winners at a gala banquet at the InterContinental Hotel in Singapore on Friday, 31st of May.
