“It is especially gratifying to be recognized for providing leadership development that is relevant, resonates with industry practitioners and provides real value,” said Norm Kamikow, MediaTec president and editor in chief. “We serve the organizational leaders who are responsible for assuring that their enterprises create and sustain innovative, competent and skilled workforces able to compete in the global economy. Assisting these learning leaders in becoming more effective, successful and, ultimately, more valuable to the business has always been our primary goal.”
In addition to publishing Chief Learning Officer magazine and a strong portfolio of associated electronic media, MediaTec hosts two international CLO Symposiums annually and a series of regional Breakfast Club meetings in cities throughout the country. In ranking MediaTec/CLO at the top of its 2011-2012 list in the small to mid-sized organization category, Leadership Excellence Editor and CEO Ken Shelton noted that the Chicago-based publisher’s “publications, events and services just keep getting better.”
The annual “Best in Leadership Development” list is compiled from a field of more than 1,000 organizations known for placing a strong emphasis on developing effective leaders. Enterprises named to the Leadership Excellence list are selected and ranked based on criteria covering the purpose, design and impact of programs offered. These include vision/mission, which assesses how leadership development programs link to strategy and target outcomes, as well as how meaningful the programs are to participants.
The upcoming Spring 2013 CLO Symposium, slated for March 18-20 at the Hyatt Lost Pines Resort & Spa in Austin, Texas, presents “an ideal opportunity for learning and development professionals to experience firsthand the kind of executive-level education that continues to earn the best leadership development nod,” said Kamikow.
