The winners of Social CEOs 2019

The winners of the social CEOs awards 2019 Polly

Last night, we held the third annual Top 30 Charity CEOs on Social Media awards.

Zoe Amar and I co-founded the annual awards back in 2013. It wasn’t long after Obama’s four more years tweet was at that point the most retweeted tweet ever.

Judges selected 25 charity leaders from over 130 nominated as the ones bringing the most transparency, personality and life to their organisations through their social media presences, including the overall winner, Polly Neate of Shelter.

We also handed out awards to:

  • The Best Digital CEO
  • The Best Digital Leader

  • The Best Leader on Social Media 
  • The Best Rising Star on Social Media
