Who will win the 2015 charity Social CEOs awards?

Social CEOs is back!

Social CEOs

We (Zoe Amar and I) are super excited to launch nominations for this year’s awards for the best charity CEOs on social media today.
The sector has been under huge attack of late, with barely a day passing without big negative headlines adorning the papers. So it feels like an appropriate time to launch awards celebrating the most transparent and passionate leaders in the sector, doing the great things that the sector should be making headlines for.
Just like in previous years, you can nominate the charity CEO who you think is doing great things on social media. And this year, due to popular demand, you can also nominate:
– the best trustee
– best senior leader (director or equivalent i.e. head of)
– best rising star (senior manager/manager level)

I want to nominate!

No problem! You can make a nomination right here. And we don’t charge for the honour of nominating, all for free.

Just get them in by 5pm on 25th September.
