McCann Leeds, the global strategic creative agency, has renewed its partnership with Prolific North for a third successive year.

Prolific North is once again working with a select group of industry partners to support our mission to celebrate, connect and inform the North’s creative and digital sectors.

The partnerships incorporate an array of initiatives and activities, including events, roundtables, webinars, interviews, articles and more.

Partners also enjoy exclusive access to Prolific North events and new initiatives and are able to help shape new concepts.

Olly Sowden, Managing Director at McCann Leeds, explained why the agency had returned for a third year.

He said: “We’re very glad to be a Prolific Partner for 2023. We’re looking forward to working closely with Prolific North and the other Partners again.

“The platform that Prolific North offers to the region’s creative, digital, and wider communications industry is fantastic, as it opens up meaningful conversations across sectors with like-minded brands and businesses. 

“We’re keen to show the rest of the UK, and the world, that our region is brimming with creativity and untapped, raw talent. Our partnership with Prolific North has gone from strength-to-strength since we began working with each other over three years ago, and we’re excited to laydown and reveal our ambitions for 2023.”

McCann Leeds became the most recent member of the McCann family when it launched in Leeds city centre in 2019.

It has since grown significantly and works with a range of B2B and B2C clients including Great Rail Journeys, Slumberdown, The University of Leicester and Yorkshire Water.

2022 saw the return of the agency’s Creative Courage series, an initiative that celebrates the power of creativity to challenge and change the norm, with a special event showcasing the findings in its Truth About Britain report.

It also released more episodes of its Moments of Truth podcast, which is inspired by McCann’s ‘Truth Well Told’ principle.

Prolific North’s Partners will get the chance to feature on Prolific North throughout the year, join awards ceremonies, be a part of key industry events and contribute to wider conversations within the industry. To discuss getting involved, please fill out the form below or email
