And we’re back! The Top 30 Charity CEOs on Social Media Awards returns.
Zoe Amar (who blogged about it in the Guardian Voluntary Sector Network this morning) and I started the awards last year to give recognition to charity CEOs who are making their organisations more transparent and interactive through their social presences.
CEOs like Peter Wanless of the NSPCC and Julie Bentley of Girlguiding, who are open to engaging with their supporters (and detractors), are serving as an inspiration to CEOs who are just getting started with social media.
For many organisations, social media is the first step in doing digital better – the gateway drug, if you will…and as the world gets bigger and more interconnected, it’s never been more important for causes to do digital well.
To build on last year’s guide, we’ll be producing more content for leaders who want to do social better. Then it’s the big one – the awards themselves later this year, on 6th November 2014.
It’s free to nominate and the leaders of any organisation that is a registered charity can enter. This includes charities of any size, social enterprises and professional bodies.
