Marlboro, NJ, United States, 2006/11/21 - Amy Mallet, Certified Advertising Specialist (CAS), and owner of Amsley Promotions, was recently awarded a Professional Development Grant by the Promotional Products Education Foundation (PPEF).
Grant Furthers Business’s Goal to Better Meet Customer Needs; Attends Business Development Conference
PPEF is a nonprofit foundation focused on providing funds to individuals in the promotional products industry to pursue educational opportunities. Ms. Mallet applied the grant toward her continuing education program to earn her Master Advertising Specialist (MAS) designation by attending the Women’s Leadership Conference recently held in Colorado Springs, CO.
The 3-day conference focused on best practices for improving customer service, time management, communication, business growth and maximizing leadership skills. Keynote speakers, workshops and breakout sessions provided a variety of learning opportunities. “As a business owner, I am always looking for ways in which I can better help my customers, “said Ms. Mallet. “The conference provided me with a wealth of new ideas and information that I can immediately put to use.”
The PPEF grant Ms. Mallet received was one of nine awarded to promotional products industry professionals. The Professional Development Grant recipients were chosen based on essays about future corporate growth and the direction of the promotional products industry. A volunteer committee judged the essays without knowing the identity of the applicants.
Ms. Mallet is an industry advocate, and has received specialized training to speak to business groups on behalf of the Promotional Products Association International (PPAI) about the merits of promotional products as an advertising medium and their use in the Marketing Mix. Amsley Promotions is also the 2006 recipient of the highly coveted Diamond Award from the Specialty Advertising Association of Greater New York.
