Chris Prystanski of ContactCenterWorld.com spoke with Alita McLoughlin at the EMEA Top ranking Performers Conference that took place in Lisbon, Portugal in June of 2014 following her presentation in the Best Outsourcing Partnership category.
Here is the full (transcribed) interview.
If you are interested in hearing from her, she will be a presenter sharing best practices at the 2014 Top Ranking Performers 'Best in the World' Conference taking place 10-14th November in Las Vegas, U.S.A. (details here www.contactcenterworld.com/conferences/?confarea=GLOBAL)
ContactCenterWorld.com: What did you think of your first experience at a ContactCenterWorld event?
Alita: Loved it! Loved every moment of it. It is the first event that I have been at that you actually get the opportunity to become involved in it. You feel part of it. It is great to meet so many different people and take away so many learning experiences from other people's business.
ContactCenterWorld.com: You have been to other contact center industry events in the past, why is this different for you
Alita: This one here, you actually get the opportunity to come and tell your story and you get to listen to other people's stories. You are getting to share the key learns that you have had and share this with other people and you get to learn something from other companies. You get to take something away. Other events that I have been to have all been about a lot of vendors at those events and you don't actually get to hear real stories and real experiences so therefore you really don't take a lot away from them.
ContactCenterWorld.com: As opposed to this one, where you do?
Alita: Definitely, definitely. Highly recommend it for any other companies to come. Even if it is just to come for that first experience, just to understand and to see what it is and what you can actually learn from it. I definitely would recommend it to people.

ContactCenterWorld.com: Was it worthwhile entering the awards and going through the process? Tell me about how it makes you focus on your own story.
Alita: You do. We have entered the Best Outsourcing Partnership Award, and it lets you sit back and look at your journey. From that start, right through to where we are today, ours is a journey that is 11 plus years and sometimes you are so focused on today in your operations that you actually don't look back, and when you look back you don't look at all the things that you have achieved, how much you have grown, how much you have developed together, so for us it has been really rewarding doing that and for us it has been a good experience. We are a close partnership anyway. I think if anything it helps to bring us closer. I am going through the experience where you have to present on stage, which is for us, outside of our comfort zone. It is not something we are used to doing. We really enjoyed it. We had to work together and very hard to do it, but again, I think that it is something that brought us closer together. Definitely would encourage others to do it.
ContactCenterWorld.com: Did you meet new people this week that you can actually bounce ideas off of in the future and foster new relationships post conference?
Alita: Yes, for sure. A lot of them are outsource companies, others are in-house contact centers, but I made a lot of good connections this week. A lot of good opportunities that we can share our best practices and keep relationships going forward.
ContactCenterWorld.com: So when you get back to your contact center, what would you tell them about this conference? Would you recommend it?
Alita: For me, when I go back, I want to share my experience with all of my team. I want them to honestly look at their operations and look at their clients and partnership with their clients and look for opportunities where we can actually celebrate the things that we do well. We have some great stories within our business and that is just in Belfast, that is not even when we look globally. I would love to see us bring some of our team here and enter some of the awards, customer experience awards. We have great stories to tell and I want my team to come next year and tell those stories.
