I’m absolutely thrilled to announce the winners of the 2015 #SocialCEOs awards.

Here’s my blog about the awards from The Guardian Voluntary Sector Network this morning.

We’ve also put together a handy infographic of the 2015 winners, including our 3 new awards for best trustee, best senior leader and best rising star. In partnership with JustGiving, we’ve created a free briefing to help charity leaders maximise social media. We’ve covered all the issues that CEOS have been telling us they need to know about, including fundraising, stakeholder management and culture change.   Get your copy here.

As you may know, Matt Collins of Platypus Digital and I co-founded the awards back in 2013. Our goal then was the same as it is now: to celebrate charity leaders who are using social media to help achieve their charities’ goals.  Time and again, we have seen how charity CEOs who lead from the front on social not only inspire supporters but encourage their staff to embrace digital.

Thank you to JustGiving for hosting our awards event last night. The 2015 awards are in association with JustGiving, the world’s largest social giving platform, helping charities grow their online fundraising, increase donations and raise brand awareness. Discover how JustGiving can help your charity grow online.

We’re grateful to TPP Recruitment for sponsoring our 3 new awards and for the support of Grant Thornton.

Finally, whilst there are 12 women amongst the top 30 we are keen to encourage further diversity and will be taking steps to encourage this actively for next year’s awards.

Let me know what you think of this year’s top charity #socialceos.
