Welcome to Social CEOS

Founded in 2013, Social CEOs recognises and celebrates brilliant charity leaders on social media.

This new generation of leader uses social platforms exceptionally well. They use them to drive change; to move the conversation on; to amplify the voice of their cause.

Who is eligible?

  • CEO
  • Trustee
  • Leader (senior role such as Director, Head)
  • Rising star (around manager level)

What makes them special?

Someone worthy of a Social CEO award probably uses social media brilliantly to:

  • advocate for their cause
  • connect with peers and beneficiaries
  • show transparency in their work
  • and maybe even have some fun while they do it!

Digital leaders

We also want to know about those leaders who might not be using social so much, but are quietly doing amazing things to drive digital change. In our digital categories, we want to hear about exceptional charity leaders who are blazing a trail in digital, championing change in their organisation – and in the sector.

Do you know anyone we should be celebrating?

Nominate here

Nominations for the 2018 awards will open on September 7th.

Congratulations to the Best Charity CEO on Social Media 2017, Matthew Hodson of NAM! Matthew was praised by the judges for his fearless commitment to saying what he thinks, challenging prejudice, and tirelessly putting the case forward for his charity’s work.
