In honor of our membership drive month, member Angela Cox-Weston, President, Midwest Speaker’s Bureau is graciously sponsoring one of her professional speaker’s circuit speakers for our monthly luncheon.  

Are you truly prepared to up your game here in The Relationship Era?

Technology-solutions and outsourcing run rampant and the mantra many hear is "web and mobile FIRST!" Yet many of the top service organizations are realizing the value in enhancing stronger interpersonal traits and soft-skills, especially where co-workers are customer-facing. Come learn why there has never been where quality customer service and effective stakeholder relations were at more of a premium, especially when technology is driving such significant change.

Dr. Withers shares what he's learned from his own work and research with many four- and five-star service providers nationwide.

  • Learn what drives top organizations to be successful in this technocentric era
  • Explore practices and solutions that you can incorporate, regardless of your company size!
