Friendly Voice wins Bronze in 35th Annual Telly Awards


2014 Telly Award Winning video produced by Steve Lawson for Friendly Voice, Inc.

Out of more than 12,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries, Friendly Voice, Inc. was named a Bronze winner in the 35th Annual Telly Awards competition for its creative work for Kemper Development Company and The Bellevue Collection.

According to Friendly Voice, Inc. president Steve Lawson, “Kemper Development Company commissioned a series of videos featuring interviews with top Bellevue Collection merchants, sharing the keys to their success in order to inspire their peers with tips on hiring, merchandising, marketing and more. The videos were shown during monthly breakfast meetings the developer hosts for its tenants. Together with Robert Spector, author of The Nordstrom Way, and videographer Aaron Horton, we produced over 25 videos in the past three years. This year’s Telly Award winning video featured Marc Chatalas, owner of Cactus Restaurants discussing some of the keys behind his restaurant chain’s success.”

A prestigious judging panel of over 500 accomplished industry professionals, each a past winner of a Silver Telly and a member of The Silver Telly Council, judged the competition, upholding the historical standard of excellence that Telly represents. The Silver Council evaluated entries to recognize distinction in creative work – entries do not compete against each other – rather entries are judged against a high standard of merit.
