As mentioned previously, our customers are not only winners in our books…but across the industry as well!
We’d like to share with great excitement and pride:
Darren Jones (@Darrenianjones) of Post Office UK has been named the winner of Incite Group’s 2017 Corporate Social Media Awards' People’s Choice Award for Social Media Leader of the Year!
Darren drives immense value on the Lithium Community as one of our esteemed Heroes. He is also valued on his team at Post Office UK, as their Social Media & Audience Insight Manager, for driving impressive campaigns like their #SummerSorted marketing campaign that generated more than £22,000 savings and a 43% time savings (talk about driving team efficiencies!).
The criteria for this award was described as: A leader who demonstrated consistency, efficiency and finesse in their approach to communicating through social media channels, both for their company and themselves.
Darren has so many advocates and fans in the social media world that he pulled in the majority of over 1,000 votes. We couldn’t agree more with this nomination and victory for Darren and the entire Post Office UK team. It’s no wonder they were also named our 2017 Regional Star Europe winner for their winning Lithy Award submission.
Congratulations @darrenianjones from the entire Lithium team! It's truly an honor and a pleasure to work alongside you.

Oh, what a night! We’re still buzzing from a memorable party featuring our awesome customers and partners at the 2017 Lithy Awards Ball on June 14 th at the Nasdaq Entrepreneurial Center in San Francisco.
A few of our favorite moments? Guests sipping our celebratory Lithy cocktail, fashionistas posing at the step & repeat, seeing the silly side of our customers at the green screen photo booth, and the pre-awards ceremony jitters as nominees waited to find out who would take home the coveted Lithy trophy.
Our dapper Master of Ceremonies, Lithium’s very own @DayleH, charmed the audience as he toasted each Lithy winner (“Lithys! Up yours!”—inside joke, you had to be there) and proudly announced the eight elite winners of the 2017 Digital Customer Experience Awards, also known as the Lithys.
The competition this year was fierce with a record-breaking number of 130 submissions from 72 global brands (check out all the submissions here ). With such a tight race, we were especially grateful for our expert panel of judges who helped determine the winners. Thanks to Social Care Expert and Thought Leader, Dan Gingiss, SVP and Digital Lead of Avanade, Jason Hunt, and Chief Digital Officer of Nasdaq, Josh Machiz.
