19 agencies achieve IPA Effectiveness Accreditation 2021-23

The agencies will hold this badge of honour for a two-year period, before having to reapply.

The IPA has announced the inaugural list of agencies that have achieved IPA Effectiveness Accreditation who are leading the way in effectiveness from the agency side.

The initiative was launched by IPA President Julian Douglas as part of his agenda to highlight the value of agencies. The rigorous entry process involved a written paper and video submission with successful agencies rewarded for demonstrating their effectiveness culture across seven criteria including their people, process, collaboration, challenge mentality, commercial literacy, achievement and credibility.

The submissions were assessed by a panel of leading brand owners, academics, authors and renowned effectiveness specialists, and chaired by Unilever’s Global Director Marketing Learning & Capabilities, Jo Royce. They awarded 19 agencies with accreditations, who will hold this badge of honour for a two-year period, before having to reapply.

"As the results of the IPA Effectiveness Culture Monitor reveal, there is a real opportunity for agencies to lead the way in this area, helping themselves and their clients on this journey and by creating, deploying and aligning their effectiveness roadmaps to ensure mutual success.”

Learnings from the IPA Effectiveness Culture Monitor which sets out the industry’s marketing effectiveness levels and lessons from the successfully IPA Accredited agencies will be analysed at IPA Eff Works Global 2021 conference from 12-15 October.
