News : Resolute Consulting Wins International Communications Award
Firm recognized in audiovisual category for Operation Rhino project
CHICAGO – Resolute Consulting is a winner of the prestigious 2012 Gold Quill Award for excellence in business communication, presented by the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC). Resolute Consulting captured an Award of Merit in the audiovisual category for its Operation Rhino project.
Produced by Creative Director Simon Edelman and his creative team, in conjunction with the Chicago Zoological Society, Operation Rhino tells the story of a Brookfield Zoo rhino that finds a new home at Misericordia/Heart of Mercy, a center for children and adults with developmental disabilities.
IABC’s annual Gold Quill Awards program honors the best of the best in business communication, offering professional communicators an opportunity to have their work evaluated by expert judges. The winners represent excellence in organizational communication and their work plans serve as best practices for professional communicators across communication disciplines.
“The Gold Quill Awards is unique in that it's the only program that celebrates excellence in communication on a global scale," says Dave Meyer, chair of the 2012 Gold Quill Awards. “Winners of the Gold Quill Awards need to demonstrate that they've added value to their organization by measuring their results and being strategic in the best sense of the word."
This year’s competition was sponsored by Towers Watson and received nearly 700 entries from 23 countries. The winners were honored at the Gold Quill Awards gala dinner on June 25 at the IABC 2012 World Conference in Chicago.
“As we continue to increase our global footprint, it is an honor to gain recognition on an international level for our creative work,” said Resolute Consulting COO David Smolensky.
The Gold Quill Award entries went through two rigorous rounds of judging by top senior communicators from around the world. The final selection was made by the Gold Quill Awards Blue Ribbon Panel of judges in March.
