Beat the Clock: award winner

Susan Forbes, QC, The International Association of Business Communicators of British Columbia has honoured Beat the Clock – Timely Lessons from 1,600 Lawyers with their prestigious Bronze Quill Award for Excellence in the category of Issues Management or Crisis Communication.

Beat the Clock was sent last May to every insured lawyer in BC and provides risk management tips to help lawyers avoid missed deadlines. Of the publication, one of the judges said the Law Society’s Lawyers Insurance Fund “listened to their audience and delivered a campaign that really met their needs… It could have been a dry and boring topic, but the sample is well-produced and easy to read.”

The award — which recognizes the outstanding efforts of BC’s best communicators and their unique approach to meeting organizational goals — was accepted by Susan Forbes, QC, on behalf of the Law Society at a red carpet event in June.
