Here is the full (transcribed) interview.
If you are interested in hearing from him, he 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: Was this your first time at a ContactCenterWorld.com event?
Antoine: Yes, absolutely, first time entering the contest for ContactCenterWorld.com. It has been a fantastic experience and I am hoping to go to Vegas.
ContactCenterWorld.com: Why did you enjoy this process, not only just coming up with the notion of "should we enter?" Then you get the invite to come. Doesn't it kind of channel your focus in terms of we better put our best foot forward?
Antoine: It does channel your focus, but then again it is such a rewarding experience overall. Whether you win or not, it is a great experience. You meet new friends, you make new contacts, people that you will be able to talk to later on for exchanges for best practices. In my case, since we are in Canada, I get to meet people from the United States and even from South America. Otherwise, I wouldn't have any chance to meet those guys, so that is great!
ContactCenterWorld.com: Tell me about the level of presenters. There are some top quality people that presented over the course of the 4 days.
Antoine: Definitely top quality presenters. We knew we were going into a contest with a high level presentation, and we were ready for that, but I have to say that I am impressed. Very, very much impressed with the quality of the presentations and the quality of the work they do on a daily basis too. Quite impressive.
ContactCenterWorld.com: How would you rate our job from ContactCenterWorld.com's perspective? What grade would we get?
Antoine: You would definitely get an A+. You guys organized this very, very well. You definitely made it happen, and not only is it a great organization, but you guys make it fun and you make it easy for us to connect and to get to know one another. That is actually rare in those kind of events.
ContactCenterWorld.com: What would you say to somebody that has never been, now that you have one experience under your belt?
Antoine: Well, I would definitely invite them. Whether they want to enter the contest or not, that is one thing, but they should at least come and see what it is, and get to listen to all of the best practices. If they think that they are ready to be the best, then why not enter the contest right away.
ContactCenterWorld.com: Do you think that this is a worthwhile investment from a company prospective. Do you think that you are going to get an R.O.I. on this?
Antoine: Oh, definitely. It is worth every dollar, absolutely!
