The 22nd CPRS Toronto CEO Award of Excellence in Public Relations luncheon was a wonderful success! Fellow practitioners gathered together to celebrate the public relations industry, strengthen professional and personal relationships, and to reinvigorate passion for effective communications.
The honouree, Phil Soper, presented an excellent speech, which highlighted his natural communication skills and thanked everyone who has helped him achieve the CEO Award of Excellence in Public Relations. He thanked his family first and foremost for being a supportive presence throughout his road to success. He also informed the audience of his family history, which has played a significant role in his goal setting and achievements.
Phil said, “writing skills are an integral part of CEO excellence,” and his family has a history of great writing.
It could be said that Phil was destined to be a great leader. With the help of Kaiser-Lachance Communications Inc., he has used effective communications to lead a business strategy and achieve business success.
Included in his speech was a summary of some fundamental public relations principles. It was encouraging to hear the President and Chief Executive Officer of Royal LePage spell out the importance of public relations to achieve effective communications. Kaiser-Lachance Communications has helped Royal LePage with strategic positioning, thought leadership, media relations, and much more. Public relations is a game changer for business strategies when it is applied effectively.
The CPRS Toronto CEO Award luncheon is a tradition that not only recognizes the honoured CEO, but also provides an opportunity to celebrate the work public relations professionals do and the counsel they provide to leaders of all types of organizations. A strong partnership with public relations professionals makes communications a strong foundation for business strategies.
Congratulations again to Phil Soper, President and CEO of Royal LePage, for being the 2014 winner of the CEO Award of Excellence in Public Relations.
