On Thursday May 18th, Logos Institute for Crisis Management & Executive Leadership hosted one of two inaugural awards ceremonies honoring distinguished leaders in the strategic communication field, consisting of the Rising Leader Award and Outstanding Leader Award.
Carolina Perez Sanz was the 2017 recipient of the Rising Leader Award, with the Outstanding Leader Award ceremony still to come in Fall 2017.
The Rising Leader Award honors new professionals, recent graduates, and students for their extraordinary leadership potential and demonstration of excellence in their work that offers meaningful contributions to the strategic communication profession.
The Outstanding Leader Award honors established industry professionals for their consequential professional achievements that set the aspirational standard for others. The award also recognizes the recipient’s excellence in use of strategic communication to achieve professional or business objectives with substantial and positive results.
Carolina recently graduated from the M.S. program in public relations and corporate communications from New York University’s School of Professional Studies, where she wrote her final capstone on how women in male-dominated professions can become leaders and inspire trust more effectively.
Carolina also completed a PhD in applied linguistics at Instituto Universitario de Investigación Ortega y Gasset in Spain. For her PhD, she did extensive research into how female broadcasters use their voices when performing on the air. She is also a certified speech therapist, and writes her own blog, Power at Speech, that focuses on how voice and speech influence the perception of public figures’ personalities. Carolina is currently an adjunct assistant professor at the Borough of Manhattan Community College, where she teaches public speaking.
