by Susie Hills | Nov 13, 2019 | News

On #WorldKindnessDay2019 Halpin is delighted to share the news that Joint CEO and Co-founder Susie Hills has been chosen as one of 2019’s 50 Leading Lights by Women of the Future, sponsored by Unilever.

These awards recognise the contribution of kind leaders to business, the economy and society.

Susie is listed alongside fellow higher education professionals Cathy Brown – Director of Strategy and Operations, Advancement at University College London, Anne-Wil Harzing – Professor in International Management, Middlesex University Business School, and Vivek Nama – Clinical Gynaecologist at Croydon University Hospital NHS Trust.

She says, “I’m really pleased to see fellow higher education professionals included in the list. This is great news for the sector and shows that HE is leading the way in kindness. I’d also highlight the work that University of Sussex is doing with their Kindness Research.”

She is featured in today’s Financial Times, along with the 49 other professionals who have been recognised as beacons of kindness. They will all gather next week at a reception at St James’s Palace, London with special guest HRH The Countess of Wessex.

Congratulations to Susie, and to all the other people on the list.
