Torod Neptune’s Paladin Awards Speech

The PRSA Foundation announced in March that Lenovo’s Chief Communications Officer Torod Neptune would be the 2019 Paladin Award Honoree. The honor goes to one communication professional every year who has made a “significant and measurable impact on the advancement of Diversity and Inclusion in the public relations sector”.

During the evening, Torod gave a speech emphasizing how nobody truly accomplishes anything “on their own”, which is why he felt so reluctant to accept the spotlight. However, he appreciates the opportunity to motivate further change in the industry, and emphasized the importance of not just talking about D&I, but making real decisions and changes to advance the industry in the right direction.
