Hearing Heroes – the comeback!

The Energizer Holdings battery brand is again on the lookout for the kind of inspirational individuals who were recognised in their 2023 edition of Hearing Heroes, which picked out individuals from different countries across Europe and North America, including the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Canada and the United States.

Among those nominated in 2023 was Steven Hale, audiologist at Steven Hale Hearing in Birmingham, U.K., who received nominations from Jack Hodgson, a member of the Paralympic British Judo team, as well as several others.

“It was an honour to be nominated as a RAYOVAC Hearing Hero in 2023. Knowing that my work is making a difference in people’s lives makes it all the more rewarding,” said Steven.

“I’m delighted that providing support, equipment and services to Jack has contributed to his training and overall well-being. This campaign is fantastic, helping recognise and champion anyone supporting the hard-of-hearing community. If you know anyone who has supported you in some way to help you with your hearing loss, it is truly worth nominating them as a Hearing Hero and helping raise awareness of the hearing care industry.”

Paula Brinson Pyke, Marketing Director at Energizer Holdings, explained: “We’re thrilled to announce the relaunch of our RAYOVAC Hearing Heroes campaign, building upon the tremendous success of last year’s, in which we celebrated the fantastic work of individuals around the world.

“At RAYOVAC, we are on a mission to celebrate the unsung heroes who make a profound impact on the hard-of-hearing community. This campaign extends beyond just hearing care professionals and is a chance for us to say ‘thank you’ to anyone who has gone the extra mile to support the hearing care community.”
