Allen Interactions and The Brooks Group Win Gold!

St. Paul, MN – Monday, April 2018; Allen Interactions is pleased to announce that their partnership with The Brooks Group has resulted in a Gold Horizon Award in the Educational websites category for the IMPACT Selling eLearning platform.


The IMPACT selling tool (IMPACT U) has been an extraordinarily successful collaboration between The Brooks Group and Allen Interactions from inception through launch. In the short time since the program was released more than 100 sales professionals have taken the course, and The Brooks Group has licensed the program to other companies for their internal sales training. The course has been translated into Chinese and Japanese with plans for translation into several other Asian languages in the coming months.

Each year, the Horizon Interactive Awards receives thousands of entries from all over the world and a volunteer panel of industry professionals, from diverse multi-media, graphic design, advertising and marketing backgrounds, review the entries to determine the work that is to be recognized. Entries were judged by an international, volunteer panel of industry professionals with diverse backgrounds and various roles within the interactive media and advertising industries. Judges looked for the best blend between creativity, content and functionality. Each entry was judged on the following:

  • Solution creativity and originality
  • Overall graphic design / appearance / user experience
  • Communication of message
  • Technical merit
  • Effectiveness of solution
