Second Mountain Comms launches new award entry writing service

By Nick Batten on 9 January, 2024

Ben Veal, an award-winning PR professional and journalist, has launched a brand-new award entry writing service for 2024, which looks to directly help local businesses showcase their successes and gain prestigious awards recognition.

Founder of Wiltshire-based purpose-driven consultancy Second Mountain Comms, Ben set up his business in 2020 with the aim of helping good people do good — and over the last three years, his approach has won numerous industry awards, including the national CIPR Excellence Award for ‘Independent PR Practitioner of the Year’, the Creative Bath Award for ‘Startup of the Year’, and two CIPR Awards for his Good Journeys with Second Mountain podcast and YouTube show.

Now, Ben is extending his award-winning writing approach to SMEs across the South West and beyond, with a brand new awards entry service for 2024.

He explained, “Winning a business award shows your customers that you’re doing things differently, and better, than your competition — and awards recognition can open many doors from a marketing, PR, new business, earned media and talent recruitment perspective.”

“Whatever the size or sector of your company, awards help you to stand out from the crowd in a positive light. Over the last three years, award wins have been an absolute game-changer for my business and have opened many doors. I’m really excited, in 2024, to be sharing my understanding of what makes for an award-winning entry, and to help a wide range of businesses to gain the recognition that they deserve this year and beyond.” 

Second Mountain’s new awards entry service is fully scaleable in line with business size, budgets and requirements. Three packages, beginning at £595 + vat, include: support with award category research and planning; internal information gathering; writing award entries; creating assets; social media amplification; and publicising and promoting award wins via focused PR activity.

Ben added, “Entering awards is a time-consuming, thorough process — and there’s a definite art to telling the story of a business in a compelling and distinctive way that resonates with judges and stands out in hotly-contested and highly sought-after categories. Writing award entries is a huge personal and professional passion for me as a comms consultant, and I’m really looking forward to supercharging lots of award entries for businesses in 2024.”
