CDI’s 2021 Kick Butt Award Winning Career Professionals

2021 CDI Kick Butt Award WinnerIt’s time once again to celebrate the kick butt spirt that represented Pat Schuler with CDI’s annual Kick Butt Award for Career Professionals.

With the Pat Schuler Kick Butt award we seek to recognize someone who best represents Pat in the areas of:

  • Fearlessness in creating and innovating within the industry and/or the individual business.
  • High integrity in communicating with others, customers, peers, colleagues, and on social media.
  • Life-long commitment to learning demonstrated through personal stretch to pursue additional training in new areas.
  • Focus on giving back through industry contributions such as industry committee participation, mentorship, or article contribution.
  • Maintenance of active CDI membership.

In our fourth year of the competition we have an unprecedented outcome:

A tie for the winner of the 2021 Kick Butt Award for Career Professionals!

This year we had two extraordinary candidates self-nominated themselves for the award. Voting was open to industry colleagues only to review the candidates based solely on their reputation, experience, and the portfolios they submitted.

We’ve never had to break a tie before and in reviewing the submissions of each candidate, we didn’t feel right making an executive decision as both candidates bring real yet different talents to the competition.

Meet the 2021 Kick Butt Award-Winning Professionals: 


Sharon Williams, JobRockit, self-nominated – read nomination >>

Tiffany Cruz, Power Writers USA, self-nominated – read nomination >>

Congratulations to both of these winning career leaders!

The Pat Schuler Kick Butt award is an annual competition.
