The Top Gun CSR Trophy

Top Gun

As a solid B student throughout my academic career, I rarely experienced that feeling of bringing home a report card with straight As. Which is why it’s very gratifying that my firm and the Sustainability team that I co-lead with my colleagues Tony Calandro and Jessica Abensour has been recognized by the PR News CSR Awards as an Agency CSR A-LIST recipient.

There are many talented agencies doing great work on behalf of their clients; to be recognized as one of the “best of the best” is gratifying. Now I know what Maverick and Goose felt like when they were selected to go to Top Gun Fighter School. But don’t worry, I won’t be singing You’ve Lost that Loving Feeling at this year’s PR News CSR Awards Ceremony at the National Press Club. Although my mother did request a copy of the trophy to hang on her refrigerator.

The PR News CSR Awards Luncheon that will take place at the National Press Club on March 15th.  The luncheon is a great opportunity to hear from lots of companies and agencies about their award winning CSR campaigns; it’s worth attending if you happen to find yourself in DC on March 15th.

We keep hearing that 2016 is shaping up to be the most unusual presidential contest in modern times.  Who would have thought one year ago that a billionaire, reality TV and social media star or a back-bench Independent-turned-Democratic-Socialist senator would even be mentioned in the same sentence as “Iowa Caucus?”  But here we ...
