Vodafone Ghana has been voted the Public Relations Organisation of the Year in the telecoms sector at the Seventh Institute of Public Relations (IPR) Excellence Awards held in Accra.

A statement issued by Vodafone Ghana on Wednesday noted that the event settled on Vodafone for its consistent and masterful delivery of key messages and activities using modern and effective Public Relations (PR) tools.

It said the telecoms company had been an undisputed thought-leader in the industry, with its Chief Executive Yolanda Cuba entrenched as the face for the promotion of a digital revolution in Ghana, leaving no-one behind.

Vodafone won two other awards – Best Promotional Event and Best In-House PR Team.

This year’s IPR Awards, on the theme: “Deriving Value from Values: Attest of Corporate Governance,” aimed at honouring and generating public recognition for the achievements and positive contributions of public relations departments in reputable organisations in the country.

According to the statement, Mr Gayheart Mensah, the External Affairs Director of Vodafone Ghana, said: “These awards are a reinforcement of our commitment to using innovative and creative platforms to communicate with our key audiences.”

“Communications and PR play a vital role in our business transformation and we shall remain consistent in implementing strategies that will enable us build goodwill amongst our stakeholders.”

The External Affairs Director, according to the statement, noted that the awards affirmed Vodafone’s position as the preferred telecommunications network that continues to shape the industry.

The Institute of Public Relations is the sole professional body for Public Relations practitioners in Ghana. It exists to provide professional development, structure and the requisite recognition for the practice of PR across the country.
