Claude Malaison
Web Strategist

Because knowledge is also knowing that when you have arrived, you have to return and that only half of the work is done!

After studying journalism and information at Laval University, Claude Malaison started out as a journalist at Progrès-Dimanche and at Le Quotidien de Chicoutimi, for seven years.

From 1999 to 2005, he founded and co-organized Intracom, the first international conference about intranets. Then from 2006 to 2012, he was a program director for an international conference called webcom-Montréal, as well as for other conferences such as webcom-Québec and Boule de Cristal.  He was awarded the Cartier Prize at webcom-Montréal in November 2011, which highlighted his exceptional contribution to the promotion of new information and communication technologies (ICTs) as well as Québec’s digital transformation.

The award he received also recognised the outstanding influence and leadership its recipients have had within their communities.

He joined the emerging group called Démocratie ouverte and participated in the first Gouvcamp-Paris with the Québec delegation in April 2012. He is also one of the founders of the group 13 Etonnés.

From 2006 to 2014, he was the president of EmergenceWeb and advised numerous corporate clients in Quebec and France on the integration of internal communications technologies. He has also worked with numerous large companies and organisations such as SAQ, Canam Group, Bombardier, Videotron, Cascades, RRQ, SAAQ, CSST, ACQ, FCCQ, Maurice Group, etc.

Since 2015, he regularly collaborates with Exo B2B on digital business strategies for companies. In May 2016, he officially joined the Exo B2B team as a web strategist. He also currently provides training, conferences and community management by managing several companies’ blogs, media and social networks.
