Loretta Lam, Chief Strategist of Focus Communications, is once again invited to the global IABC 2021 Gold Quill Awards Blue Ribbon Judge Panel.

The Awards program recognizes business communication excellence globally, and is acknowledged as one of the most prestigious awards in the industry. During this pandemic, all IABC Gold Quill Awards entries were evaluated virtually last week, and winners will be announced at the IABC 2021 World Conference held online June 28-30.

“I missed the opportunity to gather in person with some of the top communications leaders from around the world. My trip for the IABC Gold Quill Awards Blue Ribbon Jury in San Francisco as well as the opportunity to speak at the IABC World Conference in New Orleans were very rewarding experience.

As an active speaker and article contributor, IABC has recently published Loretta’s thought leadership article on how a solid diversity and inclusion strategy contribute to Canadian business success.
