DIARY: Curry favour with your boss by winning them top Pathfinders award

There's no better boost for a PR career than acquiring your

employer an award. So with this in mind, aspiring board directors may

wish to keep an eye on the impending closing date for nominations for

the Pathfinders Media Boss of the Year Award.

Media recruitment agency Pathfinders will announce the third winner of

the annual award at a ceremony at London's media hangout The Groucho

Club on 21 November. Nominations close on 31 October.

Past winners are BAFTA chief executive Amanda Berry, and Biss Lancaster

chairman Graham Lancaster, who scooped the prize last year.

Lancaster's PA, Helen Sears, nominated her boss on account of his

mentoring skills. The respect is impressively requited as Lancaster

describes her as having 'progressed quite well' and doubles her role as

PA with that of international co-ordinator.

Lancaster will be on this year's panel of judges, along with Pathfinders

MD Amanda Fone and also Berry.

Last year's award was great for business and for morale, says


Any suggestion that it could benefit the career of the nominator is, of

course, scurillous.
