Judges paid particular attention to whether or not entries included measurable objectives and results – an area in which award entries often fall short. This year, we're delighted that we will award 29 awards of merit, five awards of excellence and even one “best of the best.” Winners across all three levels include the American Society of Radiology and Oncology, Sodexo Inc., Booz Allen Hamilton, Holy Cross Hospital and the GPO Employee Communications Office, to name just a few.

Please join us this Thursday at the Ritz-Carlton Pentagon City in Arlington, Va., to network, view the winning entries and announce the winners in each category. Our keynote speaker this year is communication icon Ned Lundquist, ABC, founder of the award-winning JOTW, who also chairs IABC's International Accreditation Council and has won several communication awards himself. Ned will speak on what sets an award-winning entry apart from the rest and how the pursuit of IABC accreditation – the global standard for excellence in business communication – can help put you on the right path.

The Silver Inkwell gala begins at 6 pm with a welcome reception, followed by dinner and awards at 7:15 pm. Costs begin at $80 for IABC members and $90 for non-members in advance; tables are also available.

Good morning,

Thanks so much and please email me with any questions!

1.) Communications Director, Climate Policy Initiative, San Francisco, CA

About the Organization

The Climate Policy Initiative (CPI) is a new nonprofit institution that will evaluate the effectiveness of energy and climate policies, and help policymakers around the world understand the performance of their climate and energy regimes. As a leading independent center for comparative policy analysis, CPI will analyze and assess the practices of nations worldwide as they implement a rapidly growing portfolio of regulatory and financial measures aimed at building low carbon economies. CPI will also identify countries that are leading or lagging in pursuit of low-carbon prosperity.

The need for robust, fact-based analysis of climate and energy policies has never been greater. Leaders around the world confront a critical choice: maintain the current trajectory of carbon-intensive growth and resource exploitation, or strike a new path toward sustainable, low-carbon development that steers clear of dangerous climate change. However, even well motivated governments may lack the specialized capacities and knowledge to productively use the limited financial and institutional resources they rely upon to manage climate risks. With an imbalance between the relative strengths of public and private interests, gaming and unproductive expenditures are to be expected. CPI will help fill these information and capacity gaps, supporting policymakers who seek to understand and evaluate the implications of their choices. Established through a long-term grant from the Soros Foundation, CPI will also work closely with the finance and business communities to understand how emerging climate policies affect markets that allocate investment capital. CPI will maintain offices in key countries in both the developed and developing world to ensure its insights are rooted in the domestic landscape and readily accessible to national policymakers.

47.) SENIOR MANAGER, MEDIA RELATIONS, PACIFIC GAS AND ELECTRIC COMPANY, San Francisco, CA

Client Company

Pacific Gas and Electric Company, incorporated in California in 1905, is one of the largest combination natural gas and electric utilities in the United States. Based in San Francisco, the company is a subsidiary of PG&E Corporation (NYSE:PCG), the $12.5 billion natural gas and electric utility.

There are approximately 20,000 employees who carry out Pacific Gas and Electric Company's primary business—the transmission and delivery of energy. The company provides natural gas and electric service to approximately 15 million people throughout a 70,000-square-mile service area in northern and central California.

Pacific Gas and Electric Company and other utilities in the state are regulated by the California Public Utilities Commission. The CPUC was created by the state Legislature in 1911.

Position Summary

Media Relations is a dedicated group in the Corporate Relations function that provides strategic communications support to drive the priorities and initiatives of the company through its interactions with media outlets. Based in San Francisco, CA, the Senior Manager, Media Relations, a newly created position, will be tasked with designing, promoting and executing strategies and programs to communicate the company’s objectives and priorities.

Reporting to the Director, Media Relations & Nuclear Communications, this person will manage two to four direct reports and a total team of six to nine professionals covering roughly half of the geographic service area. S/he will ensure that Media Relations is fully integrated and aligned with other functions within corporate relations (customer communications, internal communications, online communications, etc.) as well as the broader operations of the company.

As such this person will be called upon to represent the media relations function in crisis and emergency response situations, as well as serving on the company's formal emergency response team (which activates primarily during major operational events and storms or natural disasters). During such events, this person will also be a primary spokesperson with the media and will conduct stand-up interviews with television and radio outlets with the intent of providing clear information and details for customers.

Ideal Experience

• Minimum of ten years experience in corporate communications, with a substantial portion of that directly engaged in media relations. Experience within the energy sector is not required for this role but is strongly preferred.

• At least three years of supervisory experience with proven success at not only leading execution successfully, but mentoring communications professionals, as well.

• Experience in providing effective advice, counsel and coaching on communications issues to executives, managers and colleagues

• Outstanding written (including editorial) and verbal communication skills, with a need to demonstrate the ability to relate sophisticated information and concepts in plain English are a must. Media training and significant on-camera experience is highly desirable.

• Proven ability to manage numerous issues and projects simultaneously in a fast-paced, high-visibility work environment, and a track record of delegating effectively to team members.

• Success in a highly collaborative, team-oriented business environment; where results are dependent on the ability to balance a strong bias for action with the need for consensus-building and cross-functional integration.

Critical Competencies for Success

Setting Strategy and Gaining Credibility

As the company moves from a consensus-driven to a more decisive business environment, it is paramount that the Director quickly establishes credibility as a trusted partner to senior leaders. This person should seek to anticipate future business opportunities and problems and develop strategies to address them – preparing for the needs of senior executives and preparing them for what comes next. S/he will have a well-formed opinion, and the courage of conviction that enables him/her to advocate passionately and effectively to achieve desired results, even when challenged by the executive team or members of the Corporate Relations team. Importantly, this leader will have the ability to rapidly and thoroughly master the details of PG&E's business plan, market environment, and strategic game plan; and develop strategies that communicate fundamental details to multiple external audiences in a way that enables them to understand the overall corporate strategy, and the company's success in achieving its stated goals.

Developing and Managing Talent for Optimal Performance

The Senior Manager, Media Relations must inspire, coach and develop a diverse team of people with multiple perspectives and talents, in a fast-paced and rapidly changing environment. The direct reports to this position (3 Managers) are relatively new; a combination of new hires and promotions. S/he will translate over-arching business goals into specific objectives for each member of the team, setting clear goals and milestones to measure and track success. Results are paramount in this demanding environment, and this individual will need to convey an appropriate sense of urgency while motivating team members to a higher level of accountability to deliver on their individual and collective commitments. At the same time, this person will celebrate individuals and teams for achieving significant milestones and goals throughout the organization.

Judgment

The Senior Manager, Media Relations will lead a team of “front-line first responders” who will handle a wide variety of issues and crises while also providing counsel to senior operational and corporate leaders as to the impact of possible responses. As such, it is critical that this person demonstrate the judgment required in such a critical position. S/he will make decisions that balance a variety of factors (both short-term and long-term) to achieve an optimal outcome while making the rapid course corrections necessary to react to changing conditions. In doing so, this person will understand and adhere to the core values of the organization in their decision-making.

Motivation and Work Ethic

PG&E is a fast-paced, high performance environment that values speed, excellence, and tangible results that contribute to the company's business objectives. This executive will be “hungry” to make things happen, and will demonstrate passion, energy, endurance, intensity and excitement in an environment of change and frequent uncertainty. The Director will maintain the type of focus that delivers results, and meets deadlines in a demanding, complex environment.

Other Personal Characteristics

• Unquestioned integrity.

• A hands-on executive who is a natural leader, advisor, consultant and strategist with the demeanor, business maturity, intellect and integrity required to establish immediate credibility.

• A doer – a practical mindset that allows this individual to focus his/her energy on achieving clear and specific goals, developing talent and motivating individuals to achieve at their highest possible level.

everyone in the network. The key to successful networking is living by

the golden rule. Do something to help a fellow communicator, and some day they may be in a position to help you, or someone else like you.

How does it work? If you find out about a job opportunity in

communications, send it to me (lundquist989@cs.com), and I'll share it

with the JOTW network. It's that simple. And we share dozens of

opportunities each week. Did I mention it was free?

Your cooperation is requested. Please send job opportunities to share

with all JOTW members to lundquist989@cs.com.

Feel free to share this newsletter. Feel free to forward opportunities.

Do not copy words that I wrote and use them as your own. I throw these

words in here just to see if someone is stupid enough to copy these

words entirely from my newsletter without changing them.

To subscribe, or to add a new e-mail address for your subscription, send

a blank e-mail to:

To unsubscribe: JOTW-unsubscribe@topica.com.

To change your address, do both. I can't do it for you.

You are welcome to distribute this to fellow communicators. You are

welcome to look at the previous issues. To read this list on the web,
