Congratulations to Circle member Jane Anson who was announced as the winner of the IWSC’s Wine Communicator of the Year Trophy on 29th September in London.
“An incredibly well respected and established communicator, our judges really appreciated Jane’s ongoing drive to experiment with new formats in the world of communication to really share her message,” posted the IWSC in its shortlist announcement earlier in September.
The timing of the award reflects a year of change for Anson: “Almost exactly a year ago, I took a risk by leaving a respected legacy publisher to launch my own site janeanson.com,” she comments. “I tried to do things a bit differently with actions like 1% for the Planet, the mentor week, an NFT ebook and working with brilliant partners like the Wine Conversation and 67 Pall Mall to ensure a mix of written, podcast and video content.
“It’s been a full-on, challenging and incredibly energising year, and being awarded the IWSC 2023 Wine Communicator Trophy is such an enormous vote of confidence, I can’t thank them enough.”
