Suzy Ferguson, Suzy Spirit Award

Suzy Spirit Award announces 2018 shortlist

Five finalists for the Suzy Spirit Award 2018 have been announced. They are Mischief PR’s Andy Garner, Bubble’s Sadie Groom, Cirkle’s Caroline Kinsey, TLC Marketing’s Emma Lloyd and Pinch Point Communications’ Sarah Pinch.

The winner will be announced at the PRmoment awards ceremony in London’s Park Plaza Westminster on Thursday 22 March.

Launched in 2012, the Suzy Spirit Award honours Suzy Ferguson, a former LEWIS employee who died of bowel cancer. It recognises exceptional and inspiring individuals working in the PR and communications industries.

Bowel Cancer UK will receive a donation as part of the award. The judges and organisers would like to thank everyone who submitted nominations.

Sally O’Neill, Suzy Spirit judge and VP international at LEWIS, said: “It’s fantastic to see the award going from strength to strength every year. This year we received some very high calibre entries including candidates from all over the UK.”

She added: “It’s impressive to hear about these unsung heroes that are inspiring people in and outside of work every day. Given many don’t even know they’ve been nominated by a friend or colleague, it’s equally pleasing to learn of their surprise at being recognised for what they see as normal behaviour. This truly reflects the ‘Suzy spirit’ we’re looking for.”
