The Drum Recommends is a free service designed by The Drum to help marketers find relevant, trusted agencies. Recommendations are based on reviews by the people best placed to judge their expertise – their clients.

Every year, The Drum Recommends receives thousands of ratings from marketing clients. Marketers complete a survey that scores their agency’s performance, the quality and range of their services and price. In order to become recommended for a service, agencies must receive a minimum of three client ratings.

This week, we’ve delved through our data to find the best agencies in vibrant Leeds. The northern city has been in the spotlight lately, with national broadcaster Channel 4 finally opening its regional headquarters there.

The table below shows each agency, alongside their staff headcount and the service they’ve been endorsed the most times for by their clients.
