Neil Lampert, Head of Media and Public Affairs, receives the Memcom 2018 award for Outstanding Achieving in the Membership or Marketing Team from the BBC's Zeinab Badawi
Published: May 17 Neil Lampert, CIPA's Head of Media and Public Affairs, won an award for outstanding achievement at Memcom 2018, the leading conference and awards event for the UK's membership sector.
Neil, who joined the Institute in 2014, topped the category for Outstanding Achievement in a Membership or Marketing team, with the judges citing the importance and effectiveness of his public affairs work and his transformation of CIPA's communications across all areas.
Chief Executive Lee Davies said: "Since arriving at CIPA, Neil has dismantled the Institute's tired approach to public relations and instead introduced leading edge media, public affairs and lobbying to significantly increase CIPA's influence and convey our messages to the widest possible audience. I could not have achieved so much at CIPA without working alongside Neil."
It was a great night for the intellectual property sector. Neil received his award from the BBC's Zeinab Badawi shortly after Parminder Lally and Christopher Burnett of IP Inclusive received the award for Best Equality or Diversity Campaign. IP Inclusive is an initiative to create more diversity and inclusion across the intellectual property professions and is supported by CIPA and many other UK IP bodies. The CITMA Review, the magazine of the Chartered Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys (CITMA), was highly commended in the Small Membership Magazine category.
