Last week at the US Search Awards Purna Virji was awarded the US Search Search Personality of the Year Award for 2019. The award could not have gone to a nicer, more humble, more caring and giving individual.

Purna is the Senior Manager, Global Engagement at Microsoft. She speaks none stop, all around the world, on search. Her breadth and depth of knowledge on the space is amazing. At the same time, I don't know how she has the energy to do all of that and also be so inclusive, caring and humble.

This award is pretty exclusive - it is one of those awards you do not apply for. Your industry peers come together, sit down, and think who in the industry should be given this award. Then they hound you to go to the award show to surprise you with the award.

I am so happy they award Purna this year with this award. It not only says something about Purna, but it says something about the community to have given her the award.

Purna - you are amazing and keep up the tireless work you do, always with a big smile!

Here are some community responses, at least on Twitter - there are tons on Facebook and LinkedIn, but can't embed them all:

Plus so much more!
