The past two days has seen an influx of votes for the Women in Media People’s Choice Award, with Philippa Spork, author and mentor or Rules of Social Engagement racing ahead to be the new leader of the pack.

Rebecca Wilson, CEO and publisher of Starts at 60 remains second place, with Hannah O’Donnell, managing director of Straight Up PR coming third.

However, who knows what will happen this weekend! When we conducted a similar poll for B&T’s 30 Under 30 Awards, we had Tanya Moore, latecomer to the party, leap ahead to win the award.

Just goes to show, anything can happen!

There’s only this weekend to vote in the Women in Media People’s Choice as voting closes COB on Monday, August 3. Vote right here, right now!
