South Yorkshire PR firm shortlisted for growth award


A South Yorkshire public relations and media training agency has been shortlisted for an award that recognises growth and sustainability.  

Capital B Media is up for the Business Growth Award in this year’s Barnsley and Rotherham Chamber of Commerce Business Awards, which take place in October. 

The agency, based in Millhouse Green near Penistone, celebrated its tenth anniversary this year with a number of new client wins across the public, private and third sectors.  

Capital B Media now provides PR and crisis communications services to local authorities, businesses and charities across the North and the Midlands. National media training clients include the Care Quality Commission and The Pensions Regulator.  

Kate Betts, director of Capital B Media, said: “It’s wonderful to see our hard work being rewarded and I’m very proud of how far the business has come over the last few years. We’ve had a very successful 2016 so far and to be shortlisted for this award is the icing on the cake.”  

Last month, Capital B Media was shortlisted in two categories in the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) PRide Awards for Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, including Outstanding Small Public Relations Consultancy. The winners are announced in November.  

The Barnsley and Rotherham Chamber of Commerce Business Awards take place on 14 October at Magna Science Adventure Centre in Rotherham and the Business Growth Award is sponsored by RNN Training.
