The goal was to make the golf tip series more visually engaging than the average instructional video. "Our videos had to attract the interest of both golfers and insurance professionals, dynamic enough to capture the attention of someone who may not have been a serious player," said Ozdych. "It helped that Jimmy Walker and Burns & Wilcox aligned so well on a professional level."
"The majority of Burns & Wilcox's clients and partners are avid golf fans," said Richard Shipley, Corporate Associate Vice President, Marketing, at H.W. Kaufman Financial Group. "The video series makes the direct connection with their passion and the distinctive qualities that both Walker and Burns & Wilcox share, like competitiveness, integrity, hard work and professionalism. It's been an incredibly successful partnership."
The Telly Awards was founded in 1979 to honor excellence in local, regional and cable TV commercials. Non-broadcast video and TV program categories were soon added. The Telly Awards receives more than 13,000 entries annually from ad agencies, production companies, TV stations, cable companies, interactive agencies and corporations in the world.
