CPR Annual Awards

This blog is proud to be mentioned in dispatches at The International Institute for Conflict Prevention & Resolution (CPR Institute) Annual Awards Dinner in New York this week.

The award is all the sweeter given posts here over the years have not always been flattering of some of the larger players who lead our industry.

Honourable Mention was awarded to mediator blah … blah … and as result CPR is creating a new category for 2009 - Outstanding Electronic Media - which will recognize blogs and websites that have made an outstanding contribution to our field.

B
oston's wonderful David Hoffman dominated in the Outstanding Short Article award for his Microsoft and Yahoo: Where Were the Mediators? They Help Countries and Couples, Why Not Businesses?

The Outstanding Book award went to Negotiation Genius: How to Overcome Obstacles and Achieve Brilliant Results at the Bargaining Table and Beyond by Deepak Malhotra and Max H. Bazerman, and Challenging Conflict: Mediation Through Understanding by Gary Friedman and Jack Himmelstein.

Way to go, Geoff! Here's wishing that 2009 brings us Blah Blah devotees more of your overly-opinionated commentary, and you a tripling or quadrupling of your RSS subscribers.
