2015 IABC Houston Bronze Quill Showcase Gala and Reception

I was looking forward to this event as I would be photographing the recipients of the various 2015 Bronze Quill awards and I love photographing winners.  Plus I would get to reconnect with all IABC pals and as an added bonus get work with my son Raven. He was doing double duty as photo assistant team member, helping set up the 10-foot wide step & repeat IABC Logo background, and then taking candid photos of the attendees and the speakers.

Nuevo Flamenco guitarist Guillermo Serpas and his band were playing some very nice rhythmic Latin favored music while the guests viewed the various exhibits and while dinner was served.

Houston Business Journal Editor in Chief Candace Beeke, led the evening. Carolyn Sanders, former SVP of HR and Public Affairs at Total USA was honored with the 2015 Executive Communicator of the Year award. But wait … there’s more – special guest Mark Schumann, ABC, IABC Fellow, graced the attendees with a few words of his legendary wisdom.

Nuff said . . so here’s a gallery with photographs of the winners –
