A decade of Cision PR Influencer Award nominations.

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

Now, I would lie if I said that I wasn’t just a little bit 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 my online sharing since the very 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, senior consultant and futurist at Techposition. There are many great communicators amongst the nominees, but I’m incredibly impressed by John’s work:

John has diligently picked a fight with the stupid majority who believes 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.
