Headlines’ editor Sam Boniface has been named as one of the bright young things in the UK internal communications industry.
Our writing star was one of 27 up-and-coming IC professionals to be named on the prestigious annual awards shortlist.
IoIC president Suzanne Peck said: “Although there aren’t 30 people under 30 on the list this year, the 27 that are there all deserve to be celebrated.”
Sam will be presented with her award at a glitzy bash in London on Thursday, November 21.
Entries for the awards were assessed by three independent judges – Sally Holland, senior lecturer, Faculty of the Creative Industries at Southampton Solent University; Dominic Walters, former IoIC chairman; and Phil Weare, former communications manager at PSA Citroen.
Sam said: “I’m delighted.
“I’m thrilled for this recognition. To be named amongst the up-and-coming talent in the IC community is a real honour.
“Communications is a real passion of mine – and I hope that really shone through to the judges.”
This is the second award for Sam in recent weeks.
Last month, she identified as a future leader in the world of advertising and communications, winning the 2013 Women in Advertising and Communications London (WACL) Future Leaders Award.
Headlines’ Head of Content Alicia Babaee said: “Sam fully deserves both awards. Her energy and enthusiasm for her job is a joy to behold.
“Gaining this recognition from the IoIC is great news. We’re very proud of her – and rightly so.”
