Insight Impact Award (formerly Rockefeller)

AURA's premier clientside award, this one is presented to the best case study from a client which demonstrates the impact of their work on their organisation.  This could include impact on the bottom line, engaging tricky or difficult to reach stakeholders and changing the opinions of customers through effective and creative use of insight (and sometimes all of the above!)
