Loretta Lam, President & CEO of Focus Communications, a pioneering multicultural marketing agency in Canada, has been invited to the Blue Ribbon Judge Panel for the 2017 IABC Gold Quill Awards. The Awards program recognizes business communication excellence globally, and is acknowledged as one of the most prestigious awards in the industry.

The Gold Quill program features 28 categories in four divisions. All entries are evaluated by a Blue Ribbon Panel made up of trained judges from around the world and all entrants receive constructive feedback and coaching, which makes for an excellent professional development opportunity.

The majority of Blue Ribbon Panel judges are already recognized by IABC for excellence in business communication.  Loretta Lam’s firm Focus Communications has won several IABC awards, latest being the Award in Marketing, Advertising and Brand Communication category in 2016, in recognition of its communications campaign for Clover Leaf Seafoods.  Last year, Loretta was also invited to the IABC World Conference in New Orleans, where she spoke to guests from 36 countries and Fortune Global 100 companies on the success story.
