IC Kollectif Recognizes Contributors 

IC Kollectif wants to express its heartfelt thanks to all individuals who have been making a significant contribution to the internal communication-focused non-for-profit over the course of the year. Each has added to our efforts and platforms in different ways. Some contributed to our first global online publication, Disrupting the Function of IC – A Global Perspective, others published guest posts, participated in interviews or had an impact on some of our other projects. Many of those people have also been supporting us by providing advice and sometimes more, and we thank them for this as well.

CONTRIBUTORS OF THE YEAR

 

Two communication professionals have contributed to IC Kollectif in an exceptional way. In recognition of their dedication and their willing to share of their time and content, we award the title of Contributor of the Year 2017 to Claire Watson, VP, Strategic Communication Management, Cropley Communication, and to Mike Klein, Principal, Changing The Terms.

Claire WatsonABC, MC

Vice President, Strategic Communication Management Cropley Communication, Canada

 

Claire Watson has been an ongoing source of guidance and support for IC Kollectif as a very close collaborator to the making of the eBook, Disrupting the Function of IC - A Global Perspective. Beyond her participation on behalf of The Centre for Strategic Communication Excellence and Cropley Communication as our Platinum sponsor, she dedicated highly significant volunteer hours to the project in support of IC Kollectif and the communication profession. 

 

Her contribution has been instrumental to the success of our foremost project of the year.

 

Claire is also one of the authors of the eBook and she participated in the blog post series ‘Hopes for 2017’ and ‘From Hope To Reality: How Far We've Come'.

Mike Klein

Principal, Changing The Terms

Netherlands

 

Mike Klein has been actively supporting IC Kollectif publicly in different ways since its early days, promoting IC Kollectif through posts on his own Changing The Terms blog and as a social media champion of ours. He also proposed the ideas for some of our most visible initiatives: including : the IC eBook, which became Disrupting the Function of IC, the IC Thought Leaders List, our blog series, the ‘Hopes for IC in 2017’, and the IC Around the World and Thought Leaders interview series.

 

More than just contributing ideas, Mike has also edited much of the content on the website, and also suggested many of the practitioners interviewed for IC Around the World. Mike is a co-author of Disrupting the Function of IC – A Global Perspective, has been a frequent contributor of content for the IC Kollectif Blog and for projects such as 'From Hope to Reality: How Far We've Come'.
