Connor Mahon, Account Executive, FleishmanHillard Fishburn was nominated for the Suzy Spirit Rising Star award, because as his nominator, Charlotte Nicholds explains “when we heard about the award, we couldn’t not”.
Connor’s enthusiasm for the job is contagious, he champions and mentors others outside of work and has grown the agency’s LGBT inclusion programme, despite being young and at the beginning of his PR journey.
The two winners of the 2017 Suzy Spirit awards will be announced on Friday March 17.
Claire Foster, Deputy Head of News, Direct Line was nominated for the 2017 Suzy Spirit Inspiration award, because as Chloe French puts it: “She leads by example and encourages our team to do the very best.”
Claire’s mantra is that you get out of life what you put in and that if you’re spending hours with colleagues, you should make the working environment the best place it can be.
