Top international awards for B.Tech. professor of communication

April 28, 2014

Dr. Theomary Karamanis, Associate Professor of Communication and Management at the McMaster-Mohawk Bachelor of Technology program, has been awarded three prestigious international professional communication awards.

The B.Tech. professor received three Gold Quill Awards from the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC), in three different categories:
a) Communication Management: Brand Communication;
b) Communication Management: Multi-Audience Communication; and
c) Communication Training and Education: Institutional Communication Training.
The award-winning entries involved a three-year rebranding consulting project for Guardian Group (English and Dutch Caribbean) and a Strategic Communications Workshop for graduate students at Ryerson University (Toronto, Canada).

The Gold Quill is an international symbol of excellence in business communication that recognizes strategic thinking, flawless execution and proven results. Entries are received from more than 30 countries and undergo rigorous rounds of judging by top senior communicators from around the world. Awardees will be honoured at IABC’s 2014 Excellence Awards Gala, which will be held in June in Toronto.

Dr. Karamanis joined the Bachelor of Technology program in 2013 and is the lead instructor for the program’s communication courses. Earlier in this academic year (November 2013) she was also recognized by the Global Alliance for Public Relations and Communications Management with their “best of the best” award, namely the COMM PRIX award, in the Internal Communications category.

The B.Tech. program would like to congratulate Theomary on these incredible achievements. The faculty in the program continue to surpass our expectations with their success.
