Basic CMYK Recently I was honoured to be an invited panellist at the ComputerWorld IT Leadership Awards Gala in Toronto on 26 October 2010.  I was invited as an IT/Social Media Thought Leader by IBM to talk about how IT can best support successful businesses, especially mid-sized businesses.  The panel was moderated by Shane Schick, Editor-in-chief of ComputerWorld Canada.

I was also honoured to be designated as a an IT Influencer based on the work I do promoting the profession and engaging in community and social networks.  I hope to write more about the analysis that was done to identify the top 3 IT Influencers in Canada.

I was happy to be a part of these awards, which recognize IT leadership in many categories, including traditional leadership positions such as IT Manager and CIO, but also recognized a Rookie of the Year, IT Mentor and Women in Technology Mentor of the year.  It’s important that our profession recognize the people who are making a difference locally in their own organizations and across the profession.

Please take 2 minutes to read through the list of finalists and awardees.   While you’re doing that think about the real leaders in your own organization whom you can nominate for next year’s awards.
