Fortitude Communications win marketing excellence award

Fortitude Communications has been crowned for delivering marketing excellence at a prestigious awards ceremony.

The agency won the JACKfm Marketing Excellence award at the glittering Oxfordshire Business Awards 2023. It rewarded Fortitude’s contribution to marketing, communications and PR of the successful regeneration of Oxford Stadium and Oxford Speedway, which both made extraordinary returns to the city in April 2022.

The Oxfordshire Business Awards recognises, rewards and promotes the excellence of Oxfordshire companies. The Marketing Excellence award rewards businesses that demonstrate best practice in marketing via a campaign that sets clear objectives and measurable results. The black-tie event took place at Oxford Brookes University. 

First class marketing 

Greig Box Turnbull, founder and director of Fortitude said: I’m incredibly proud the agency has won such a highly respected award. It Is well deserved recognition for our brilliant team who consistently deliver first-class marketing and PR results and is a marker of where we are as a business.

The re-birth of Oxford Stadium and Oxford Speedway is an incredibly uplifting story and it’s been a privilege to help tell it and help our client achieve remarkable marketing results. Winning the award is celebration for us and our clients and we’re grateful to everyone who has supported us.”

Exemplary marketing

Donnach O’Driscoll, Chairman of JACKfm, said: As Oxfordshire’s biggest and most successful radio brand, we are delighted to have chosen Fortitude Communications as the winner of the Marketing Excellence Award for 2023

While there were many excellent entries for this category, we felt that Fortitude were worthy winners because of their superb work in making the re-launch of the Oxford Stadium such a huge success to the county, city and especially the local community.

This campaign illustrated the exemplary marketing, communications and PR service that Fortitude’s clients are benefitting from. Their knowledge, passion and drive to deliver a highly effective multi-faceted campaign ticked every box in what we were looking for as a marketing excellence example.

As one of the leading radio brands in the county for over 16 years, we here at JACK know what it takes to keep a brand at the top of its game. We look forward to seeing more of Fortitude’s great work in the future!”
