The Nielson Group and Success Discoveries Honored by International Company

Scottsdale, AZ (Feb. 10, 2009) – Carl Nielson, President, was recently honored by Target Training International (TTI) as the recipient of the Chairman’s Award for Services to the Community at the TTI Winners’ Conference in Scottsdale, Ariz.
TTI presented the award to Nielson for his involvement in community service initiatives.  Nielson volunteered his time and expertise to establish a Career Coaching program for students in the Greater Dallas Area Boys & Girls Clubs. The area clubs are providing students in high school a great opportunity to become more self-aware and match their talents to career options.

Bill Bonnstetter, Chairman of TTI, said Nielson, along with several fellow TTI Value Added Associates, has demonstrated a strong devotion to contribute to our society by delivering the power of TTI’s assessments to those in the community. 
“I think of myself, back when I was a teenager, when I see these high school students,” Nielson said. “Many may be less fortunate than I was but even at that, I didn’t get much help discovering what talents I had and what I might look at for a career. I was a number in a big system. It wasn’t until my second year in college that I found my calling, that passionate thing that has given me a great career. I was lucky to discover a career direction. Many adults aren’t so lucky. Career Coaching for Students™ was designed to enable high school students to find their passion. Seeing it in action is incredibly rewarding for me.”

Success Discoveries, a division of The Nielson Group, provides individuals with life-enhancing programs.
