Africa Global Funds held its Service Providers Awards event on Thursday, 24 October at Sandton's Radisson Blu Hotel. The awards are the only international awards for African fund services and aim to give industry and public recognition of outstanding effort, work and the accomplishments of African fund service providers.

This was the first time Flow had entered the awards. "We were thrilled to be shortlisted," says Flow CEO Tara Turkington. "We're over the moon that we won. This is recognition on a significant scale."

"This category — Best Marketing and Communication Consultancy — is the only category of the awards dedicated to the vitally important role that communications play in fund management and delivery," adds Turkington.

"It was a very competitive shortlist. We congratulate the other shortlisted agencies for excellent work. It's fantastic to see the quality of fund communications that are being delivered in Africa. The stakes are high. The bar has been set. It's upward from here for all of us," she says.

Flow works with the intent to build industry relationships that contribute to the growth and recognition of the good stories coming out of Africa. "Our maxim at Flow is to work with people we like and with clients whose projects are making the world a better place. This is what drives us and what keeps us reaching higher; to have our work recognised is a fantastic added bonus," adds Turkington.

"This is more than an award. It's a recognition of the team's dedication and passion. It's an affirmation that we're on the right path," concludes Flow Communications head of content, Edwina van der Burg.
