Is #SocialCEOs just for leaders of large or well known charities?
No it isn’t. We’ve had some big names in the top 30 over the last couple of years, but also CEOs of small charities too. One of our goals behind the awards is to make digital as accessible as possible.
We would encourage leaders from charities of all sizes and causes to apply.
But isn’t it just for CEOs?
Alongside the top 30 CEOS, we are launching 3 new awards this year to recognise individuals’ social media presences in the following 3 categories:
- Best trustee
- Best senior leader (director or equivalent i.e. head of)
- Best rising star (senior manager/manager level)
These 3 new awards are sponsored by TPP Recruitment.
Do I need lots of votes to win?
No, the judges look at quality rather than quantity of nominations. Obviously, if lots of people are nominating you that is no bad thing, but our panel will give more weight to calibre of entries rather then numbers.
Do I have to be based in the UK?
No, we encourage leaders of charities from all over the world to apply. Obviously, as we are based in the UK we tend to receive more entries from leaders who are based here, but we consider entries from anywhere in the world equally.
I’m a leader of a nonprofit/ social enterprise that isn’t a registered charity. Can I be nominated?
We would love to open up the awards to wider nonprofits and social enterprises but we need to keep the judging process manageable for our panel, so at the moment we have restricted it to registered charities.
However, the guides we produce each year are packed full of ideas that will be useful to leaders of any nonprofits, so we hope those are useful for you.
So what are you waiting for? Make your nominations.
