SK Investigation Services Is A Proud International Member Of American Biographical Institute.
Established in 1967, the American Biographical Institute does the work of publication of biographical work. They get money through the sales of work related to biographies; books and certificates. Based in Raleigh, North Carolina, the awards given by the body have been condemned by individuals and institutions for the sometimes controversial figures who receive them. The institute usually invites persons to accept titles such as Outstanding Man of the Year, Woman of the Decade. When the individual likes the idea of the title, he gets it at a fee which may range from as low as $200 to as high as $500. Often, the prices placed on a title may go as high as $800.
The body describes itself as a world leader in contemporary achievement. Of course it asserts that the awards are earned by those whose merit deserve them and are not up for purchase. Worthy of note is the fact that the body shares an address with the United Cultural Convention; a body that also gives awards that come with price tags. The President who heads the institute, Janet Evans also heads Pentland Press.
The institute also hosts a world forum together with the International Biographical Center across a number of states in the United States, Europe and Africa. These for a are centred around seminars, cultural performances and exchange. Countries like Kenya, Portugal and the UK have been hosts to these events. While the body does not usually provide the occurrences in these events, it includes a shallow reference to the occasion in newsletters. The 2012 forum was scheduled for Oxford. Jan Mrgosian of the Oregon Department of Justice has warned consumers of the actions of the institute’, mostly casting doubt on their marketing strategies; they include you ina book to have you buy it.
The body creates awards depending on the opportunity they see. As regards the status of the person for whom the award is meant, the prices may be really high. The quality of material used in making the certificate. Worthy of note is the fact that in a single year, a single award can be given to many people depending on the number that is able to pay for it. The institute may not always make public the names to those who were given an award or title. People get to know that someone was honoured by hearing the person use the title in reference to himself.
World figures that have benefitted from the body include Pakistan’s Benazir Bhutto as well as Yahya Jammeh of Gambia. On its part, the body says that its mission is to recognise and fete outstanding men and women the world over in whatever discipline and career that they have made substantial achievements. They give the reasoning that the manner in which they give awards is reason enough to trust the quality of their activities. The invite only award system, as claimed, is done after thoroughly vetting the achievements of a person and thereby determining their contribution to mankind.
The institute prides itself in the way it handles the private information of its clients. They will seek the opinion of whoever is willing to enter into a transaction with them. They value the person and therefore seek to uphold their confidential matters. This could explain the concealment that surrounds the awards given to personalities.
However, the manner in which awards are given out has made a lot of people question the quality standards as well as the intention of the body. The fact that one receives recognition based on their financial ability does not go down well with many. This leeway has allowed controversial figures to enjoy seemingly prestigious names and titles.
