HELEN MILNER NAMED DIGITAL LEADER OF THE YEAR
We're delighted that our Chief Executive Helen Milner has been named Digital Leader of the Year at the DL100 Awards 2017.
Helen received the award at a special ceremony at the St. Pancras Renaissance London Hotel on the evening of Thursday 22 June. The event was also part of Digital Leaders Week 2017.
The Digital Leaders Awards were launched in 2013 as a way to recognise individuals and organisations who demonstrate a pioneering and sustainable approach to digital transformation across the public, private and non-profit sectors.
Helen says: “It is a huge honour to be recognised in this way. The work of Good Things Foundation and our thousands of local partners are changing the lives of people every day - people who are struggling in a digital world. I have the pleasure to work with a talented team and with supportive partners who make success easy.”
Previous winners of the Digital Leader award include Maggie Philbin OBE, BBC technology reporter and CEO of technology education organisation TeenTech, and the Chair of our conference last year.
A judge for this year’s awards, Maggie tweeted about Helen’s win: “She had my vote! Great leader, great woman. If you don't know her work check out what Helen is doing with Good Things Foundation.”
As an extra testament to the innovation to be found in the city, Sheffield Flourish - a local Online Centres Network member - was named Digital Charity of the Year.
Roz Davies, Managing Director of the local mental health charity said: “The award is amazing news for the hundreds of people living with mental health conditions and supporters who have made Sheffield Flourish what it is!”
Congratulations to both of you.
