Northern Ireland is home to a wide range of creative arts and industries. Over 24,000 people work in the creative industries or in creative occupations. This represents 2.9 per cent of the workforce. The creative industries are important drivers of economic and social innovation. This vibrant sector has huge potential and can have a significant impact into other business areas such as tourism.
Creative industries rely on individual creativity, skill and talent, so when Zing was given the opportunity to sponsor the Creative Industries Award at the Causeway Coast and Glens business awards we were honoured.
The night on a whole was great! So many influential and inspiring local people and business’ attended the event and it was great to see everything this area has to offer.
Russell was delighted to announce the winner of the Creative Industries Award, Sonya Cassidy. Sonya is the managing Director of SCPR and has been recognised by Business First and The Chartered institute of Public Relations for the development, execution and evaluation of communication strategies and crisis plans for clients across Ireland and Britain.
Zing would like to congratulate Sonya on this achievement and indeed all other winners at the awards!
