The Social CEO’s Awards have recently published the top 30 charity CEOs active on social media for 2016. Ruth Ibegbuna, CEO of youth leadership charity RECLAIM, won the top prize. 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 thorough 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 for 2017.
We were delighted to see that two of CAN Mezzanine’s customers made the top 30; Brita Fernandez Schmidt from Women for Women International and Jan Tregelles from MENCAP. Matt Stevenson-Dodd from Street League who is a CAN Trustee also made the list, all feature in the infographic below, detailing all the winners and the importance of social media for leaders in the third sector.
