News and insights (March 2021): Cicero/AMO highlights

  1. PRWeek’s 2021 UK Power Book: Every year, PRWeek unveils the PR pros who lead the way in their respective areas. This year, we’re delighted to announce that it features three Ciceronians: Cicero/AMO’s Executive Chairman Iain Anderson, Senior Counsel Louise Stewart, and Account Director Sonia Khan 


  2. Cicero Charity Challenges:  Ciceronians have been using their spare time in lockdown to embark on charity challenges that benefit great causes. This month, we would like to highlight: 

  • Cicero/AMO ran our second Virtual Work Experience in partnership with Speakers for Schools. 15 of our committed employees volunteered to teach 30 students aged 15-18 all about the Communications Industry via #Googleclassroom. It felt even more important this year with the school year being so disrupted by the pandemic and the feedback from the students was excellent. 
  • Senior Counsel Louise Stewart has been walking 10,000 steps a day throughout March. Louise, who is in remission from breast cancer, has raised over £2,000 to support Cancer Research’s lifesaving research.   
  • Account Manager Euan Ryan cycled 154km (the distance from Damascus in Syria to Za’atari Refugee in Jordan) in solidarity with Syrian refugees. The cycle supported an existing fundraiser ‘Move for Mercy Corps’.  
     

3. International Women’s Day On March 8th, the Cicero/AMO team celebrated IWD with their own pledges on what they’d #ChooseToChallenge.  

On the day we also launched the Cicero/AMO Women’s Network to help promote equality and to support women to have the skills and confidence to succeed.
