Have you ever come in contact with a natural leader? Effective leaders instill confidence among their team, facilitate excellent communication and lead through their actions and examples. Maybe you are lucky enough to work with such a person every day. If you know of a leader who “gets it” when it comes to communication, consider nominating them for IABC International’s EXCEL Award.
IABC’s annual Excellence in Communication Leadership (EXCEL) Award recognizes a world-class executive who is not an IABC member but who exhibits leadership in practicing outstanding communication. EXCEL winners consistently demonstrate vision and leadership in their commitment to effective business communication. Through their actions and examples, these senior leaders (typically CEOs, presidents, managing and executive directors, and chairmen) support the communication profession and follow sound communication principles themselves.
The recipient of this prestigious award will give a keynote address at IABC’s World Conference in Chicago on June 25, 2012. They will also join a select group of EXCEL winners that includes executives from Xerox, Best Buy, Marriott International and Motorola. The deadline for nominations is Feb. 10, 2012.
