A list of the top 30 charity CEOs on social media in 2016 has been published by the Social CEOs Awards.
What’s more, an overall champion named for the first time in the Awards. Ruth Ibeguna, CEO of youth leadership charity RECLAIM, scooped the top prize.
Three individual awards were also made alongside the top 30 to recognise the social media presence of senior leaders and rising stars of the voluntary sector. Tom Baker of BOND (Best Senior Leader), Maya Dibley of Girlguiding (Best Trustee) and Catherine Deakin of Tommy’s (Rising Star) were the prize winners.
The awards, which are now in their fourth year, were devised by Zoe Amar from Zoe Amar Communications and Matt Collins from Platypus Digital.
Commenting on this year’s awards, Zoe Amar said: “This year’s winners show how charity leaders have grown in confidence in how they are using social media. Our judges were very impressed by the way in which they were using social to manage stakeholders, show thought leadership and lead from the front. We’re living in uncertain times and resources are tight but the work these charity leaders are pioneering online should be a source of hope to the voluntary sector.”
A social media briefing has been published to boost effective social media use and here’s an infographic showing all of the winners.
