Simon Caulkin named Columnist of the Year at 23rd Workforce Media Awards

On Tuesday, 19 January 2010 at the Workforce Media Awards Simon Caulkin, former management editor at The Observer, now freelance was named Columnist of the Year “For his gripping, well-written and insightful writing. Simon combines depth of knowledge with an ability to bring alive whatever subjects he covers.”

What could have been added is that he is the best 'systems' journalist in the UK media. Also that this is a fitting rebuke to members of the Scott Trust, publishers of The Observer who recently supported the decision to end Simon's Observer column. It would seem he may have been doing his job too well for some!

Well said, Ray. I'm putting together a monthly 'blog of blogs', summarising the output of like-minded management authors, many of whom are fans of Simon. Presumably you will be happy to be featured? In due course, I plan to mail out to my own databases; and recommend sending to those of others, to build up an audience. I met Simon last week and he's up for the idea - his own will start soon.
