Out of more than 5,000 submissions from 24 countries Friendly Voice, Inc. was named a Bronze winner in the 2014 Summit Creative Award® 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 SCA winning video featured Marc Chatalas, owner of Cactus Restaurants discussing some of the keys behind his restaurant chain’s success.”
