MATCHING it with the big guns and even exceeding these bigger organisations is something Leeton's Sauce Communications has always prided itself on.
That fact has again been acknowledged recently when the company received received three national awards at the prestigious Golden Target Awards run by the Public Relations Institute of Australia (PRIA).
Sauce was named the 2020 medium agency of the year, 2020 agency team of the year, and director Liane Gawne received a bronze for 2020 leader of the year.
The agency of the year award win was Sauce's ninth across the Golden Targets and Mumbrella's CommsCon award programs, which the agency believes to be an industry record in Australia.
Mrs Gawne said was proud of the company's recognition after a challenging year.
"COVID-19 has been a very challenging time for all industries across the board," she said.
"For Sauce to have been recognised with these three awards is a testament to the hard work and dedication that my team (past and present) has put in.
"We are very fortunate to work with such a wide variety of clients across Australia and this recognition provides the continued drive to strive for the best results possible for our clients and ourselves."
The Golden Target Awards are Australia's longest-running public relations and communications industry awards, recognising strategic and creative thinking, executional excellence and high-achieving people, teams and agencies across the country that have transformed businesses, brands and reputations during the judging period (July 1 2019 to June 20 2020).
Sauce has been doing its part to help others during 2020, offering up their skills and knowledge as part of a competition for businesses in the region.
The award has again proven to Mrs Gawne that it doesn't matter where one works, the product can be delivered.
"To have won medium agency of the year for the ninth time is even more remarkable when Sauce is a regionally based company up against companies from metropolitan areas, proving to us once again that talent is everywhere and especially in the country," she said.
The agency team of the year was Sauce's first win in this category.
