Congratulations to the winners of the CIPR Excellence Awards 2023

I had the privilege of attending the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) Excellence Awards 2023 as one of the judges on Wednesday evening (28 June) with my Executive Assistant Louise Mackenney and Communication Consultant Dan Holden.

We joined over 500 people at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London, and it was lovely to catch up with comms friends in person and see their hard work celebrated.

Well done to all the winners and everyone shortlisted.
