Cincinnati, Ohio (April 24, 2012) – Accelerated Business Results (ABR), a full-service, award-winning training and social media firm, has been named as a finalist in the Cincinnati Chamber of Commerce’s Small Business Excellence Awards for 2012. ABR was placed in the category of Emerging Business of the Year along with five other local companies.
“Accelerated Business Results is truly client-focused and experienced at all aspects of the training business,” said Terri Shannon, Account Manager for ABR. “We don’t have the red tape and procedural constraints that many bigger competitors have. I believe this gives us the leverage to better service our clients, and helps us stand out from the rest.”
Elise Margol, an Instructional Design and Project Manager for ABR, said, “I think ABR is adept at serving our clients for our instructional design methodology. We recognize the balance between adhering to the academics behind our solid instructional design process, while also building elements in our learning solutions that engage adult learners, such as with stories and visual effects. We think it’s the special something that our clients know us for; the way our programs tap into people’s emotions and imagination to maintain their attention all to ensure learning occurs.”
“What makes ABR unique is the way we customize the solutions and services that we offer,” said Kathryn Lee, Quality Assurance Manager for ABR. “Our clients come back to us time and again because we are reliable, responsive, and collaborative professionals, and they know they can count on us to provide quality solutions.”
Founded in 2001, Amy Fox started the company with no outside investors, yet the company has had year-over-year growth. ABR designs, develops, and implements customized training, e-learning, facilitation, coaching, and social media solutions, as well as other interactive tools and programs. ABR’s focus on unique, quality solutions since its founding a decade ago has earned the company industry recognition and helped to build an impressive list of clients, including Comcast, Sprint, Procter & Gamble, and Time Warner Cable.
