The #somecomms award is a fantastic recognition for Stuart's accomplishments. He recognised the opportunity that social forms of media would have on organisational reputation as early as 2005 and has been an international thought leader in this area ever since working with clients and to help up-skill practitioners.

This is now the third time that a member of the CIPR Social Media Panel has been recognised by #somecomms for their contribution to the industry. It is a terrific endorsement for the Panel and the work of the CIPR in this area on the Share This project, Social Summers and guidance.
