Acorn Regulatory’s Chief Marketing Officer Brian Cleary has been shortlisted for a 2017 TOPRA Award in the Communication category. The awards recognise the achievement of individuals, teams and organisations in the regulatory affairs community. The 2017 TOPRA Awards ceremony will take place at the Waldorf Hilton in London on November 8th and will see nominees from all over the world compete for nine awards. The Awards for Regulatory Excellence cover a total of nine categories, spanning all aspects of the regulatory profession including innovation, contribution, communication and lifetime achievement. This is the third time that Acorn Regulatory has been nominated for a prestigious TOPRA award since the inception of the competition in 2010. Acorn Regulatory has been particularly proactive in highlighting how the UK’s decision to leave the EU will have implications for the regulatory sector. The company has produced five whitepapers to date, including a comprehensive survey of professionals in the sector, and these have been downloaded thousands of times from the Acorn Regulatory website. Furthermore, the company has highlighted countless thought leadership articles from its expert staff that are regarded as hugely informative by regulatory professionals throughout the world. Brian Cleary’s nomination for a 2017 TOPRA award is a recognition of the work that has brought regulatory affairs and the issues in the sector to a wider audience. This is the second time in recent weeks that the company has been shortlisted for an award. Acorn Regulatory recently won the Best SME category at the 2017 County Tipperary Business Awards at the Clonmel Park Hotel. You can read more about the County Tipperary Business Awards here.
