Integrated marketing is a strategic approach that focuses not only on consistent messaging across all communications channels, but on broader cohesion of all elements of the marketing strategy, in many cases including the integration of the customer’s perspective. The increased scope and complexity of today’s marketing environment makes the mastery of this discipline all the more vital. This award is aimed at businesses that have deployed comprehensive and holistic approaches, whereby multiple marketing tools and channels are leveraged strategically and in unison to deliver exceptional business growth.

Whilst one of Ireland’s most loved brands, Guinness found itself consistently losing share with a younger demographic.

Bucking industry trends with a new campaign model rooted in longform TV content, Guinness Homecoming campaign was delivered through an innovative integrated cross-channel format. Homecoming delivered breakthrough brand relevancy, new recruits and ultimately a huge 21% volume increase in sales.

The Very Group Catherine O’Toole


2022 was the biggest year in The Very Group’s 40-year history in Ireland as we embarked on rebranding Littlewoods Ireland to Very. It is easy to get wrapped up in the excitement and opportunity of a rebrand however it is quite daunting to look at the potential risk it posed to the business.
