ZEAL is The Drum’s Most Recommended Agency


The Drum has just announced the winners of its annual survey of Most Recommended marketing agencies and ZEAL has being judged as the very best in the UK.

The awards, driven 100% by independent ratings from clients and testimonials gathered by The Drum’s anonymous system, compare all type of UK marketing agencies on their core skill set and on the universal areas of agency delivery.

First of all, ZEAL has once again been recognised as The UK’s Most Recommended Agency for Promotional Marketing.

The team has also been specifically named as:

  • Most Recommended Agency for Strategic Thinking
  • Most Recommended Agency for Client Service
  • Most Recommended Agency for Effectiveness

All of the above achieved in the 40-99 people agency size bracket.

As a result of these wins, ZEAL was also given the biggest news that it has been named as the winners of the Grand Prix for Most Recommended UK Marketing Agency (40-99 people.)

Co-founder of ZEAL Stewart Hilton was delighted to take the call earlier today:

‘With CV19 there’s no glitzy awards dinner this year but to get an early morning call from the Drum instead was just as special.  The whole team work tirelessly to deliver on our mission to be the Most Recommended Agency in the World and this is another giant leap towards that goal.  The work they have created this year for some of the world’s biggest brands have been highly EFFECTIVE and creatively stunning.  It’s lovely that so many of our clients recognise this and take time out to say thank you and well done.’

Managing Director, Rachel Roberts, is proud of the progress the agency has made this year:

‘This is the first time that we’ve competed in the mid-sized agency category so we weren’t sure how tough the competition would be.  The team have really focussed on strategic thinking and on measurable campaign effectiveness this year so it’s wonderful to see this reflected in our client ratings.  The level of client service delivery the team provides is always second to none and comes from having an amazing group of superstars who have a real ZEAL for what they do.  I couldn’t be happier for them to receive these awards.’

Co-founder, Robert White, is keen to recognise the role ZEAL’s clients play in this particular awards scheme:

‘At ZEAL we work with clients that have ZEAL.  They care passionately about their brands, they treat us as real partners and we fight every battle side by side.  We are also blessed that so many of them are prepared to take time out of their busy days to write a review or send us a testimonial.  Its feedback like this that drives passionate agencies forward and to be recognised in this way by the brilliant people we work with is truly humbling.  Thank you to all of you’

In the absence of an official awards’ evening ZEAL will be holding their own virtual celebrations via ZOOM and then getting straight back to work delivering with excellence for clients from our own homes.
