Saunderstown, RI – June 21, 2012 – Lisa Tener, founder of the Bring Your Book to Life Program was presented with a Gold Stevie® Award in the Marketing-Media category and a Bronze in the Executive of the Year-Media category in The 10th Annual American Business Awards on June 18.
The American Business Awards are the nation’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.
Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” the trophies were presented to honorees during a gala banquet on Monday, June 18 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York. More than 500 nominees and their guests attended. The presentations were broadcast live by the Business TalkRadio Network.
More than 3,000 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories. Stevie Award winners were selected by more than 270 executives nationwide who participated in the judging process this year.
Lisa Tener’s BRING YOUR BOOK TO LIFE PROGRAM is a powerful, proven book writing program designed to take a writer from inspiration to author in just 8 weeks. The program is delivered two times a year to groups in Narragansett, RI and via teleconference for long distance participants. Beautifully packaged and information-rich support materials, including CDs, a training manual and templates were designed to support students in the groups and for independent study. Graduates of the program have gone on to be published by major publishers, self-publish and even create e-products.
“We’re delighted that the first of our two American Business Awards banquets honored so many deserving organizations and executives,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “It’s gratifying and inspiring to have received so many remarkable entries for this year’s competition. We’re looking forward to celebrating other Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie winners at our new tech awards ceremony in San Francisco on September 17.”
BRING YOUR BOOK TO LIFE is also a finalist in the New Product/Service of the Year-Media category and for a People’s Choice Award. Both awards will be presented in San Francisco on September 17.
