Cambridge TV, one of our regional sponsors, have very kindly produced this podcast to capture the highlights from this autumn’s CIPR Pride Awards.
This autumn, we celebrated the outstanding work and efforts of PR professionals from our region at the CIPR PRide Awards.
I know how much goes into delivering a successful campaign. So I wanted to help acknowledge the hard work and effort by organising the awards night for the Thames, Anglia and Chiltern region.
This year, it was held at The Guildhall in Cambridge. It was a pleasure and an honour to be involved. And many thanks to Cambridge TV who offered to produce this highlights podcast.

Celebrating the work of our region’s PR professionals
Lucy Wright is our podcast host. She won last year’s Young Communicator of the Year category, and speaks to the key people involved with our region’s awards.
Becky Hall, Chair of CIPR East Anglia, talks about the benefits of being a member and outlines the various events and networking opportunities available.
Kerry Sheehan was our region’s head judge this year. As well as providing some really helpful feedback on where some entries could’ve been stronger, she also speaks about the future of PR, particularly the role artificial intelligence will play for our profession.
Then Lucy catches up with Jenny Sanchis, who was named this year’s Young Communicator of the Year. Jenny is advocating for improvements to PR campaign measurement and, and encourages her clients to be ‘pushing back on outdated metrics’.
“I presented something different to the judges,” she says. “My entry wasn’t about traditional campaign, it argued the importance of PR, research and measurement.
“Winning was a really nice surprise and I’m really grateful the judges awarded me considering the strong field of candidates who also entered.”
To those who won awards, many congratulations and winning a PRide Award is a massive achievement. Everyone nominated should also be incredibly proud.
If you came along to the awards night in Cambridge, I really hope you enjoyed the evening.
Sorry if you weren’t able to make it, but I hope this podcast gives you a flavour of what CIPR East Anglia offers and the achievement of winning an award.
