Listen to Your Clients or Lose Your Business

Posted by on Mar 21, 2017 in Blog, Past Events

Listen to Your Clients or Lose Your Business May 18, 2017, 8:00 AM – 10:00 AM A fundamental need of most people is to feel appreciated and this especially applies to customers. Seventy six percent of consumers view their experience as the basis for how much a company values them. If you have lost business to a competitor, it could be that your customers felt ignored. Why should anyone attend this workshop? Statistics reveal that businesses fail to resolve consumer problems 50% of the time even with an experienced customer care staff. News of poor service reaches twice as many people as news about a positive experience. Without ongoing customer service training, businesses will continue to come up short and will watch the competition abscond with their clients. This workshop will: Help participants gain insight to deliver celebrity status service; retain clients and attract competitor’s clientele. Engage the participants in role playing for the purpose of improving listening and communication skills with internal/external customers, the C-Suite, vendors and suppliers. Dig deep into the fact that customer service goes beyond the purchase of goods and services. It involves the activities before, during and after a prospect decides to buy. Reveal useful insight – get best value in placing the right...

WXW – Got Ambition? Panel Discussion

Posted by on Feb 17, 2017 in Blog, Past Events

WXW – Got Ambition? Panel Discussion   November 16, 2017, 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM Whether it’s becoming CEO, starting the next Rent the Runway or nailing that promotion, ambition matters. Waiting to be noticed and rewarded for your good work won’t get you to your goals. The world universally admires ambitious men. But ambitious women? That’s when it gets trickier. Being seen as driven or “trying to hard” is considered unappealing. These unconscious stereotypes can prevent us from fulfilling our own potential. And it’s not just external obstacles. We hold ourselves back, too: Fear of taking risks Lack of confidence Perfectionism (can you relate?) To make it even more complicated, we often have different interpretations of what “ambition” means to us. For some it’s seeing your future without limits. For others, ambition pits women against each other. Join us and a panel of dynamic women to talk our views on ambition and the role that it plays in our careers and lives, from growing your network, to balancing big goals with family, from access to capital to opportunity for advancement. Together, we’ll examine what ambition means to us personally and how we can stoke it to achieve our dreams – whatever they are. Join us on Thursday, November 16, 2017...
