Andrew Wallis, CEO - DSC Social Change Awards – The Influencer Award
The Social Change Awards are for all those working to achieve a positive change in society - individuals, charities, community groups, companies, public bodies. The Influencer award is solely for individuals that really know which buttons to press to make things happen - from campaigning for a change in law to bringing together different groups to achieve what might have seemed impossible. We want to acknowledge the determination and hard work required to communicate clearly, put forth a persuasive argument and win people over to bring about positive change.
