Winner

Jon Spiers

Just:: Health Communications


Summary of work

Jon Spiers

Throughout his career, Jon has demonstrated a genuine focus on patients, a passion for and commitment to continuous innovation, and a natural aptitude for creating the right communications blend for every challenge. Whether working with multinational corporates, small and medium-sized businesses, charities or NHS bodies, he works tirelessly to enthuse others about policy and campaigning, demystifying the sometimes intimidating political world for colleagues and clients alike. 

At Cancer Research UK, Jon supported and ultimately led campaigns on policy issues from the smoking ban – hailed as “the greatest step forward in public health for fifty years” – to protecting the UK’s science base. He coordinated and directed a blend of lobbying, PR, public involvement and online campaigning to achieve successful outcomes for the organisation – in fact, the charity never lost a campaign during his time in charge. At Just::, Jon has helped transform the firm from a pure PR house to a truly integrated communications agency, engaging staff at all levels to develop their political skills. He is Public Affairs Lead on the Healthcare Communications Association’s Executive Committee, championing the role of policy and public affairs within the broader healthcare industry.

Judges comments

Jon was amazing. He demonstrated a lovely sense of humility during a thoughtful and considered presentation. Although he’s still emerging there’s already a maturity about him and he’s well on his way. We liked his curiosity and self-awareness and, while he has his own leadership style, he’s clearly open to learning from others.

Highly commended
