Public relations is a field that has been in sharp focus in Nigeria recently, with the Public Relations Consultants Association of Nigeria organising a number of events to disseminate skills in the domain across the country. BHM was recognised at the Lagos PR Industry Gala and Awards. 

The NIPR recognised BHM’s innovative approach, based on its progress towards digitalisation. Specific criteria used by the institution include creativity, bespoke approach in service delivery, as well as processes and usage of technology for communication briefings. BHM scored highly across the board.

This is not the first award that BHM has received from NIPR recently. Last year, the firm was given the award for The Best Agency Using New Media in 2018 as well as for proficiency in the use of New Media in 2018.

Commenting on the awards, Founder & CEO of BHM Ayeni Adekunle said, “We are sincerely delighted with this award. Our practices are born out of an intense belief that the future of our industry rests on the willingness to use inventive approaches towards solving problems. Everyone at Bhm shares this belief and I am proud of the work we have been able to do. Much of the praise goes to our staff as well as our clients. We are able to develop and implement these processes as a result of the great relationship we all have. I hope that practices such as these propel our industry towards enhanced global recognition.”
