Congratulations to Andy on new award

Congratulations to my business partner at GREEN Communications - Andy Green - who has just been awarded a medal. Stranger still he's never been in the armed forces and if had been he would probably have been in the ranks RASC or, Run Away Someone's Coming.

Andy has been awarded the 2006 Stephen Tallents Medal by the Chartered Institute of Public Relations. The Medal is awarded at the discretion of the CIPR President and recognises outstanding achievements in, and contributions to, the development of public relations.

With more than 20 years' experience in public relations, Andy began his career as a Public Relations Officer for South Yorkshire County Council. Since then he has worked in-house and in consultancies, for both public and private sector organisations. In 1993, he set up GREEN.

Andy is author of two CIPR 'PR in Practice' titles: Creativity in Public Relations, the worldÂ’s first book on the subject; and the recently published Effective Personal Communication Skills for Public Relations. Amongst his many achievements, Andy is the driving force behind the Wakefield Media and Creativity Centre, which houses the Art of Propaganda Gallery - an exhibition space on how perceptions are shaped and moulded.

Let me add my congratualations and express my delight that the medal's gone to someone who's very much alive and kicking (and doing more than the rest of us to provide a positive public face of PR.)

Thanks Richard,

I agree if anyone deserves this award it is Andy although he was genuinely shcoked when he took the call.
