Corporate Innovations recorded operating profits of £251,000 to the end of 2009, up from £206,000 in 2008, according to its annual accounts filed at Companies House.

The agency’s managing director David Watt said: "It came from a strategic direction we took after assessing that quite a lot of our larger clients would reduce their spend in 2009. We carried out an aggressive marketing plan."

Clients including T-Mobile and Orange have helped the agency remain stable, said Watt, along with wins with frozen food giant Birds Eye and telecoms firm 3 Mobile.

Watt added that a busy 2010, particularly this quarter, would keep profits buoyant.

"We are hoping to do a really good quarter four this year," he said.

Last month, Corporate Innovations carried out a series of events for Nationwide Accident Repair Services at Donington park after securing a contract with the business.
