HOUSTON, TX — UPDATE: Richard Tyler was awarded the American Biographical Institute’s prestigious honor, MAN OF THE YEAR 2012 for distinctive accomplishments in his field. On May 29, 2012 we released information that Richard Tyler was nominated by the American Biographical Institute for this honor. Recently, the Institute’s International Board of Research confirmed Mr. Tyler’s selection as MAN OF THE YEAR 2012 for distinctive accomplishments in his field. The selection comes after a careful global evaluation of individuals who have excelled in their professions. Mr. Tyler’s original nomination conclusions were not only selected from biographical archives, but also through correspondence with prominent businesses, media resources, universities and organizations around the world. Only men who have achieved significant distinction in their professions and have offered contributions to society as a whole have been considered for the ABI MAN OF THE YEAR accolade. The requirements for nomination include bold will and initiative, and intense community, cultural and humanitarian foresight. The Institute’s 2012 MAN OF THE YEAR award recognizes men who are leaders in the effort to improve the status and professional environment for all. The ABI congratulates Mr. Tyler on his selection as a personification of what the honor stands for.

Mr. Tyler stated; ” I am honored by my selection and inclusion as a Man of The Year for 2012. I humbly thank the American Biographical Institute’s Editorial Advisory Board and their Deputy Governors for this distinction. I applaud them on their hard work to raise the standards of excellence for all professionals. The American Biographical Institute’s (USA) work in conjunction with the International Biographical Centre (UK) to support The World Forum is excellent. I hope to have the privilege to participate in the 2013 World Forum in Cambridge, MA.”

Over 40 years ago, the ABI founders identified that a crucial component to global growth is not merely the existence of brilliant, dedicated minds—it is also crucial that others are aware of them. This simple notion of revering others for their accomplishments has a ripple effect on our local and international communities. Our mission is to provide an authoritative biographical reference collection to the world—one that aptly recognizes the top men and women achievers from every career and academic discipline across the globe.

About The World Forum

2013_world_forumUsing over thirty years of experience in bringing together learned and cultured people, the World Forum Federation privately invites international professionals and intellectuals to the annual World Forum. It is through the support of the American Biographical Institute (USA) and the International Biographical Centre (UK) that the World Forum is the most unique convergence of cultures, ideas, and creative energies in the world. There is no other event like it. Deemed a “global senate,” the World Forum takes place in a different international city every year. There, some of the world’s most accomplished and remarkable men and women act as Ambassadorial representatives on behalf of their countries and people. Through stimulating symposiums, lectures, question and answer sessions, musical performances, book signings, and artistic displays, Ambassadors interact with each other in an open and friendly, yet structured, format that promotes international cooperation and discussion. And it all takes place within some of the most culturally engaging locales in the world. The word “conference” does not do the World Forum justice. It is more than a way for countries, cultures, and disciplines to meld and learn from one another. It is more than a way to establish networking contacts and to form lifelong friendships that span across countries and years. It is more than the opportunity to have your passion and your voice heard on an international stage of like—minded peers. The World Forum is all of these things, plus so much more. The fact that people return to the World Forum year after year is testament to this.
