  • SOUTHEAST ASIA CONSULTANCY OF THE YEAR: EON

    Originally posted in www.sabre-awards.com

    The first firm from the Philippines to gain recognition as one of our Consultancies of the Year, EON stands out alongside larger firms from larger markets because of its focus on stakeholder engagement and reputation management, a positioning that fits well with its status as an affiliate of Edelman and active partner in the latter firm’s “trust” research. That’s not to say EON is a minnow: a staff of about 70 makes it a market leader, and it has doubled in size over the past four years despite turbulent times for the local economy.

    Clients include multinationals such as Shell, McDonald’s, Diageo, AES, Visa, Intel, HP, Blackberry, BMW, and Cisco, with new business last year from FedEx, the European Union, Nike and more. High-profile assignments included the McDonald’s Philippines National Breakfast Day campaign; helping the Australian Agency for International Development raise awareness of climate change and natural disaster preparedness issues; and creating a social media effort for client Maynilad’s “Best of the West” event, which raises the profile of products from the country’s western region.—PH
