ContactCenterWorld.com: How many times have you been to these awards?
Greg: This is my third time here.
ContactCenterWorld.com: Why do you find value in applying for these awards?
Greg: The best thing that I have found from these awards is, not only the personal growth I get from it, but the information that I can take back to my company. It is a win win. I get something for me, for growth and get better in my job, but also bringing stuff back and best practices to make my company better.
ContactCenterWorld.com: Out of the conferences that you have been to, how would you rank this one?
Greg: By far the tops! I sat through over 60 presentations. In most of the conferences you get 2,3,5, something along those lines. You don't get as much value from the time that you are there. It has been fabulous.
ContactCenterWorld.com: I know that you work in the technical aspect of things, but what about the fact that there are no vendors here? It is just common people sharing best practices.
Greg: It is one of the best things about the conference. You can come here and you know you are getting feedback and it is free to learn. You are not worried about who's trying to sell me something, or who is trying to pitch me. It is just who has the best practice, who has feedback, who had information and knowledge in the industry. That is probably the best thing about it.
ContactCenterWorld.com: Will you come back?
Greg: Without a doubt, I will be back.
ContactCenterWorld.com: Is it easy to network and meet new people that have shared interests within the industry?
Greg: It is simple to network. Not everybody finds it easy to talk to others and get open like that. The conference has a way to just bring it out of you. Some people that are a little bit more reserved won't find it an issue to network and meet with the folks here because it just becomes a natural event. You get friends. From the first year that I have been here there are people that I have stayed in touch with. This year, I have met new people that I am sure that I will stay in touch with. That is the great thing about this conference.
ContactCenterWorld.com: Are we, as ContactCenterWorld, doing our job?
Greg: You are exceeding your job. You are doing far beyond what I think most people would expect from a conference. Great job! Kudos to you guys.
