IMPACT magazine wins Gold at the CIPR PRide Awards 2018

The Business School’s magazine, IMPACT, has been awarded Gold in the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) PRide Awards 2018 North East for Best Publication.

The magazine showcases the impact the Business School’s students, researchers, staff and alumni have across the business community and the world. IMPACT was first launched in January 2017 with the aim of creating a high-quality thought-leadership and news magazine, embedded across the School’s stakeholder community and beyond.

CIPR judges summarised: “IMPACT is a great example of thought leadership best practice. Well researched and well-executed – and well received by a very educated group of stakeholders. A worthy winner!”

The Business School’s marketing team work with colleagues from across the School, students, alumni and business connections, to produce articles covering a range of topics. There are now four editions, each with a theme, and all include examples of the School’s high calibre research and the impact it has internationally, the achievements of everyone involved and stories of continuous business activities. The magazine is testament to the School’s excellent students, faculty, staff, research and alumni.

Professor Susan Hart, Dean of Durham University Business School, said: “It is fantastic to see the hard work that goes into IMPACT being recognised at the CIPR PRide Awards. The magazine brings together members of faculty, staff, students, alumni and business connections to showcase the impact the Business School has on the wider communities, from the local to the international. Thank you to all of our contributors.”

The fifth edition of IMPACT is currently in its final stages of preparation and will be printed in time for Winter Congregation Celebrations on 11 January 2019, with the digital version following shortly after.
