The return of the Social CEOs awards

Social CEOs judges from 2015

The serious business of judging the 2015 Social CEOs awards.

Social CEOs is back for 2016!

Once again, we’ll be bringing together some of the biggest names in the sector to showcase the charity leaders flying the flag for their cause.

There are few better channels for leaders to tell the world, as individuals, what they’re trying to achieve. We believe that good practice in social media on their own feeds means strong digital leadership for the whole charity. So we want everyone to know when it’s being done.

The awards themselves

If you work at charity and your CEO is on social media, you’ll be able to nominate them, or someone else whose work you love.

Follower numbers are irrelevant, as are charity size and where it is in the world. All are welcome.

Our judges

Check out the judges for 2016 – a veritable who’s who of the sector:

  • Simon Blake, CEO of the NUS (Chair)
  • Peter Wanless, CEO of the NSPCC
  • Karl Wilding, Director of Public Policy and Volunteering, NCVO
  • Caron Bradshaw, CEO of Charity Finance Group
  • Rohan Hewivasenti, Group Director of Resources at the RNIB
  • Beth Kanter, US based social media guru
  • Lucy Caldicott, charity leadership and governance expert

Next steps

Nominations open on Friday 9 September. This year’s winners will be announced at a special event on Thursday 17 November.  You can follow me and awards co-founder @zoeamar on Twitter for more.

The awards sponsors

We have some great sponsors for the awards, like TPP Recruitment.

TPP Recruitment is a specialist consultancy dedicated to supporting not for profit organisations, including charities, professional membership bodies and cultural institutions, as well as education, health and social care providers.

More sponsors will be announced over the summer. And there’s still space if you want to get involved (just email me for details).

Resources for you

In previous years, we have published guides on how CEOs can make the most of social media (download the 2015 guide here).

Look out for this year’s guide, coming to a webpage near you.

Remember – nominations open 9 September. Until then, get your thinking cap on about who deserves one (a nomination that is, not a thinking cap).
