European Association of Communication Directors (EACD) in a gala ceremony held at the European Communication Summit honoured Mr. Stephen Elop, Chief Executive Officer of Nokia Oyj with the European Communication Award.
This award honours outstanding communications achievements on a European level, and is given to the individual or organisation whose communication efforts over the past year stand out on a European level.
Many would argue here that why they have given this award to him. Haters gonna hate. Though, they did mention about the famous Feb11 ‘Burning Memo’ of S.Elop which got leaked out. But apparently the award is for best communication style. From what i’ve seen so far in Nokia’s various events, i can say that he’s definitely a great speaker.
Stephen received the award in recognition of his unique communication style and commitment to which always puts his employees and customers opinions first.
