The results are in for the ‘Your Learning Journey’ competition

Drum roll, please… And the winner of the PR Academy ‘Your Learning Journey’ competition is: Helen Theofanous!

Helen claimed 67% of the online public vote for her inspirational professional development story and can now enjoy a journey of a different kind with her prize of a £250 Trailfinders gift card.

At the same time as Helen graduated from PR Academy with a CIPR Internal Communications Diploma (with  a distinction!)  in October 2012 she was promoted at work to manage the strategy to keep 5,000 employees engaged and motivated during the biggest change programme in the NHS’s history. So a holiday is definitely in order, Helen!

When I told Helen that she had won she said that we'd put a big smile on her face - she'd loved studying with us and thought that getting a distinctions was as good as it gets but this wasdefinitely the cherry on top.

Congratulations to you – and thank you to all who entered for sharing your motivational stories in 140 words or less (no mean feat!) of how studying for a qualification has helped you in your day-to-day work and to progress your career. Who better to inspire others to learn than you?

The full list of entrants is as follows.
