They are finally here! I am so excited to share this year’s top 30 charity CEOs on social media with you.
We announced the winners at our awards event last night hosted by Girlguiding. A big thank you to them for hosting us, as well as Grant Thornton, who the awards were in association with, and our other lovely sponsors TPP Not for Profit and the Access Group.
As you may know, Matt Collins of Platypus Digital and I co-founded the awards to celebrate the great work done by charity CEOs who use social media as a central tool of their job. We hope it will encourage even more CEOs to take the plunge and go digital. There is a huge range of charities of all shapes, sizes and causes in this year’s 30.
Here’s my blog about the awards from The Guardian Voluntary Sector Network this morning.
Take a look at our infographic of the 2014 winners below. We’ve also published a briefing to help CEOs get the most out of social media, which includes case studies from Relate, Parkinson’s UK and Beating Bowel Cancer. It’s packed with lots of other advice, including insights from Grant Thornton on social media and governance and tips on the latest digital trends for CEOs, such as thought leadership. Get the briefing here.
If you want to help your CEO improve their social media presence, or need to boost your own, I’m also running a course on that very topic on 22 January at Just Giving’s offices.
Do let me know what you think of this year’s top charity #socialceos.
