Its nearly 1200 members represent business and Industry, technology, counseling firms, government, associations and hospitals, schools for communications, professional services firms and non-profit organizations. ABCI`s Annual Awards Nite is the most prestigious function in the country in the Business Communicators fraternity. ABCI is the First Professional Body in India to organize 50 Annual Awards Nites, one each in a year since 1960. It is a mark of Prestige to get an ABCI Award, which is considered an ``Oscar of Indian Communications Industry``. The Golden Jubilee Annual Awards was held on 11th November 2010 at Taj Mahal Hotel, Colaba, Mumbai. Every year, the entries get better and better. This year ABCI received 895 entries which is all time high in 32 categories and more than 98 companies have participated.

Chief Guest Speech

I don't think I can get away by saying that in the company of so many experts in Business Communications, I am left speechless. My good friend Roger would be most upset so here I am ‌. Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen, I would like to share a secret with you. As a young engineer in TCS I found myself with a real tough boss in Mr FC Kohli. As you may know he had a stern personality, sharp mind and a tongue to match it. You had to think twice before you disagreed with him and in any case there was little chance that you could match him in a verbal duel. I could either just be a yes man or find a way around the problem. So I began writing memo's to him. I labored over finding the right words and hitting the right tone, these memos Mr. S. RAMADORAI, Vice Chairman TCS Limited became my strongest vehicle for putting forth my ideas , they helped me build a relationship with him that lasts today. So in a way; were it not for the communication skills I honed at that time, perhaps I would not be here today. With the super specializations of job profiles, today people work in teams where different individuals bring in complementary skills. The efficiency and productivity of such teams is directly proportional to how well they communicate especially since. sometimes these team members may not be in the same city or country. My favorite example if that of Boeing's 787 Dreamliner which required constant collaboration among nearly 6,000 engineers around the world. It was built by over 48 different International teams across locations from Japan to Germany to Washington, many of whom who never actually ever met. Imagine the precision of communication both business and technical that this called for. In today's media ruled environment, your communication with the external world can make or break your brand. Communications plays an important role in shaping the perceptions of our target audiences, which is of crucial importance in the demanding and competitive markets of today. Infact I feel that business communication should form a critical part of college education in India, very often it is the lack of these skills that stand between a person and the job. Perhaps ABCI can initiate a student outreach program as part of their efforts. I think that the ABCI is doing an excellent job by getting communicators together on a single platform, and by organizing this mega event to recognize and reward outstanding talent in this field. To have been organizing an event of this nature, uninterrupted for fifty years, is no mean achievement. I would say that, corporate communicators deserve greater recognition than is generally accorded to them, but I am sure you feel rewarded in the responses to your work. The corporate communicator is a backstage man or woman, silently scripting the success stories of his or her craft, and the audience applauds not him or her, but his or her work which may be through the power of words, or design, or a film, or even a web-page. I would like to congratulate every award winner here, there are others who will look up to you and aspire for similar recognition. So tonight is your night, thanks to the untiring efforts of the ABCI, the spotlight is on you. On behalf of my wife and I, thank you once again for inviting me.

President’s Speech

It gives me a great pleasure that ABCI's th ComFest 10 & the 50 Annual Awards Nite took place in fanfare in November, 2010, wherein the Galaxy of Speakers including Mr. R. Gopalakrishnan, Mr. Sam Pitroda, Dr. Narendra Jadhav, Dr. Dinesh Keskar, Mr. P. M. Sinha, Mr. Gerson Da'Cunha, Mr. Roger Pereira, Mr. Jitender Bhargava, Mr. Kumar Ketkar, Mr. Manzer Hussain, Dr. Uday Salunke, Prof. D. Udaya Kumar, Dr. Mathew Hibberd, Mr. Sanjay Choudhry truly raised the bar of ComFest10. In the evening wherein we had Mr. S. Ramadorai, Vice Chairman, TCS was the Mr. YOGESH JOSHI, President ABCI Chief Guest & Mr. Thmas Mathew, MD, LIC, was Guest of Honour to grace the occasion of the Golden Jubilee Awards Nite. ABCI is perhaps the only Professional Body in India to have organized 50 Awards Nites one each in the last 50 years. We have received 892 nominations from 96 companies participating as against nominations last year. ABCI will soon cross a mark of 1000 nominations. However, what is most important of this year was the qualitative increase in the nominations received along with the quantum leap. ABCI is also one of the few Professional Bodies who have survived for more than 54 years and well ride over the tide of rough weather that it has faced in its 54 years journey. Due credit needs to be given to all Past Presidents who have run the association in difficult days. I am making a mention of this in light of the fact that some of the companies who have won the magazine of the year, the most coveted award of ABCI are not been functional today. They are closed down, taken over or merged with some other bigger companies. It is time that ABCI should now look for new horizons and widens its wings to mark its presence pan India. It is, therefore, decided that ABCI will soon launch chapters in cities like Hyderabad, New Delhi to begin with and will soon be followed by Kolkata and a few other cities. ABCI should also look at the Global Skies as it is the right time to take off at the International level with nation going global. This will help ABCI in getting more & more professional knowledge and introducing best practices in the profession of Business Communications. Interaction in between Industry & Academicians is need of the hour to shape-up future of the students entering into this profession. ABCI is taking up steps to bring them on one platform. The Golden Jubilee Celebrations took ABCI took the association at undoubtedly the most prominent professional body for communications professionals in India. Let us make it a world renowned professional body in a decade thus, transform it as the Association of Business Communicators International when it will celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Annual Awards.

ROUND UP 18 MAY 2011


Letters to the Association Dear Yogesh, I can't find words to express what a grand function you had organize yesterday. I have yet to attend any function where you had such a galaxy of very senio and elite persons that were actually present at the function.I don't know how you did it, but I know that it must have taken a lot of effort on your part and your perseverance and sincerity certainly showed in the results. My very best wishes Bobby Sista

Good Show, Good Speakers, Really enjoyed hearing them. Topics were relevant and knowledge based. - Mr. M B JAYARAM, GM (CC) Karnataka Power Corporation Ltd, Bangalore

Dear Yogesh,

This is my second year of my experience with ABCI ComFest. It has been a treat and a memorable experience. Communication is the root of anyone's success in their career and life in general.

Congrats on putting up a splendid show. - Jitender Bhargava

- Ms. Usha Laxman, Muktangan - NGO Excellent 50 years Event. Well done. - Roma Balwani

It was a very interesting event. Many Lectures and Views were useful. Very well organized. - Dr. A. K. Gupta, Indian oil Corporation Ltd, R & D Centre, Faridabad

Dear Yogesh, Congrats to you and your team on the ABCI Awards show. While my colleagues received the award, I would like to thank you for the excellent arrangements and the presentations. I truly missed this function. I am sorry, I could not attend as I was out of station.

Mr.Yogesh Joshi President - ABCI Dear Sir, I wish to congratulate you personally for another superb edition of the ABCI Awards Nite.The selective mix of well-chosen categories, the honour of felicitating veterans from across the industry spectrum, the sheer scale and composition of the evening has raised the event to an altogether new high! In addition, the ComFest series (with a sprinkling of some of the well known faces - as speakers) that you have so successfully stringed together, over the past few years, have been the icingon the cake for many of us in the profession. I wish you, your very able and gifted team members at ABCI, the very best to help take ABCI to more loftier heights. And am sure all of us in the profession will be there to support and encourage you and the Association to cross many more important milestones and hit a century!

I also heard that your term comes to an end this year! If you ask me, you have been the architect of the show and therefore I strongly believe that you should continue and take the ABCI to greater heights. Thank you once again. We will keep in touch. Warm Regards, R Anand, Sr. GM, HDFC, Mumbai

Three Cheers to you. Kind regards, Philips Abraham

Superb ComFest 2010. Brilliant Speakers, Chairpersons etc. Hotel, Food excellent. I think it is a memorable event. Keep it up. Full Marks to Yogesh and his team. Well done. - Mr. Bishwajit Mukherjee, Misha Network, Australia
