Cision PR Influencer Award
Cision Scandinavia is cel­eb­rat­ing its 10th anniversary of the Cision PR Influencer Award.

I’ve had the hon­our and pleas­ure of being nom­in­ated by Cision Scandinavia in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 — and now also in 2020 for the Cision PR Influencer Award.

I would lie if I said I wasn’t slightly pleased with myself for being nom­in­ated for a decade.

As fol­lows, I pride myself on being some­what con­sist­ent, espe­cially since this blog, Doctor Spin, has been the cent­ral hub for online shar­ing since the start of my career. Online influ­ence has nev­er been the goal but rather a side-effect of shar­ing my pas­sion for pub­lic relations. 

Since I won in 2016, I have kept my fin­gers crossed for John Mellqvist, a seni­or con­sult­ant and futur­ist at Techposition. There are many great com­mu­nic­at­ors among the nom­in­ees, but I’m incred­ibly impressed by John’s work:

John has dili­gently fought with the stu­pid major­ity who believe that get­ting older is only about get­ting less young.

Fighting ageism in the work­place is a worth­while pursuit.

In John’s spir­it, I cel­eb­rate this last dec­ade of PR work, from New York to Stockholm, from agency to inde­pend­ent adviser — and becom­ing a hus­band and a father.

Please sup­port my blog by shar­ing it with oth­er PR- and com­mu­nic­a­tion pro­fes­sion­als. For ques­tions or PR sup­port, con­tact me via jerry@​spinfactory.​com.
