AXON10

Over the past 10 years a lot has changed. The world was introduced to the iPhone and YouTube, scientists mapped the human genome, and the founder of our UK office, Ralph Sutton, temporarily grew a beard, three times.

What started out as a one-man show 10 years ago, AXON has grown to become a leading specialist and integrated communications agency (number six in this year’s PR Week 2013 UK Healthcare Agency League Tables don’t you know), and we’re all very excited to be celebrating this landmark occasion. While we look back at the memories of the last decade, it’s important to note that it wouldn’t have been possible without the support of all the engaging and diverse clients we’ve had the opportunity to work with over the years – thank you!

Building our foundation upon our scientific knowledge, we have been providing smart, innovative, and sometimes unconventional, support to our clients in a variety of ways over the years. Just like our name suggests, AXON – otherwise known as a nerve fibre, crucial in communicating vital information around the body – aims to be that essential connection between you and your audience. We’ve had great fun supporting a variety of projects over the years, and look forward to being an integral part of so many more.

Whilst we would like to raise a glass and celebrate with you in person, we decided to celebrate our ten year anniversary by ‘Giving 10.’ Throughout the year, each AXON London employee has been invited to give ten hours of working time to a charity of their choice. You can celebrate with us by showing your support by following our ‘Giving 10’ antics via the blog, or you can even sponsor members of the team who completed a 10km run this weekend by sponsoring the efforts here:  http://www.justgiving.com/AXONTEAM. All proceeds go to the Teenage Cancer Trust, AXON London’s charity of the year.

Like most, we enjoy taking a moment to reminisce, and have of course enjoyed looking back at our company achievements over the past 10 years. However, here at AXON we like to look forward, and in particular we’ve been thinking of what we want to accomplish in the next year, as well as over the next 10. Whilst some plans differ, it’s clear to say there’s a clear consensus on introducing cake baking as a weekly office fixture and ensuring teleportation is introduced with significant urgency; but overall I think the whole team here in London, would agree when we say we plan to keep working the way we have to ensure the next ten years are as great, even greater in fact, than the last 10.
