There’s always a lot going on at Ready10 with both clients and staff. Here’s a few of the things we’ve been up to recently…and a little less recently….
New office who dis?
After over a year of planning, last week saw us move into our new digs in Highbury and Islington. It's a truly beautiful space which reflects our incredible growth over the past few years, and we're really proud to call it home. See the full walk through here.
Best Places to Work finalist
This one means a lot to everyone at Ready10 HQ. Our team and culture are everything so we're delighted to be named a finalist in the PR Week Awards Best Places to Work!
We're a PR Week Top 50 Consumer agency
The PR Week Top 150 Consumer agencies table is out and we are number 46... our highest ever ranking and we're the youngest agency in the Top 50 🔥🔥🔥
Our team were nursing a few sore heads in May after an EPIC all-agency three day trip to Ibiza to celebrate our belated fifth birthday.
We're wrapping up the Ready10 Xmas party and what a 24 hours - celebrating brilliant work, brilliant people and in a gorgeous location. See what we got up to in Staffordshire here, there's even a guest appearance from Honey G!
It's certainly been a massive few weeks at Ready10 during October. Marathon tick, medalists tick, mug tick, music tick, McDonalds tick. See everything we've been up to here.
COMMITTED TO DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
PRWeek recently conducted its Pay Gap Report, and found that Ready10 has no ethnic or gender pay gap. We also announced our female-majority management board – just some of the measures we’re taking as part of our commitment to diversity & inclusion.
LET'S TALK ABOUT JUNE
June was busy at Ready10, we urged world leaders to walk the walk on carbon emissions, we landed front page news on the first weekend of the Euros and we even unveiled a pitch-sized St George's Cross. See the full video here.
WE HIT THE TOP 50
We are on the PR Week Top 50 consumer table for the first time....and we are the youngest agency on it. Find out more here.
READY10 TURNS FIVE
To celebrate our fifth birthday, we created a piece of NFT art. The 3,600 letter wordsearch by artist Charlotte Posner has the names of all 124 staff and clients in our history - can you spot yourself?
INVISIBLE XMAS PARTY
We spent November and December encouraging businesses to donate their unused party budgets to support thousands of hospitality workers. We’re pleased to say we raised over £16,000 for Hospitality Action.
We gave a shirt about beating bowl cancer by wearing our favourite football shirts with pride in aid of the Bobby Moore Fund.
DRIVING IT HOME
We picked up Best Automotive Campaign at the PRCA National Awards for our work with JustPark. Go team!
BME PR PROS
Our account exec Debbie Nambo spoke at 2020’s BME PR Pros Winter Series event. Get it girl!
MENTAL HEALTH IN PR

We picked up three gongs at the PRCA Dares. One for our digital McDonald’s work, second for our JustPark charity work and Medium Consultancy of the Year.
100 DAYS OF WFH
100 days ago we thought we’d only be away a few weeks, here’s a look back of 100 days!
WEEK AT THE PR KNEES
PR Week’s 2020 Awards shortlist has been revealed and we’re up for small consultancy of the year and for our JustPark General Election campaign!
READY TO HELP
On March 16th 2020, we held our final staff meeting altogether before lockdown and all agreed on a simple promise: that if we can help others during this time, we should. From there, Ready to Help was born.
We're in the running for CIPR's consultancy of the year and up for awards for our McDonald's Joe Marler and JustPark General Election campaigns.
Hot off the press - we've not been nominated for one, not two, but six PRMoment awards for 2020. Two are for agency of the year and four are for our brilliant campaigns for PRO 2GO and JustPark.
IT'S A HAT-RICK!
We didn't just win won, or two, we've just brought home our third award of the year - for Small Consultancy of the Year at the PRCA's. We're chuffed!

There’s nothing quite like winding up Piers Morgan – so we thought we’d build a campaign generator guaranteed to come up with a PR idea that would rile him. Try it yourself at http://provokepiers.com/
