Laurie: It was wonderful. Beyond presentation, just talking to my peers on a casual basis. I found more tips outside of the presentations than I did inside the presentations. It has been great.
ContactCenterWorld.com: Do we do a good job, in terms of facilitating networking opportunities with some pretty important people, all-star people?
Laurie: I found it amazing. I am going to go back to my company and talk about how we can do additional participation next year, and through the years to come. The apps were wonderful, the connection online to people instantaneously, who are all in the conference, who you already know, is an amazing asset beyond the conference itself.
ContactCenterWorld.com: What would you say to somebody who has never been?
Laurie: I would say that after you attend this conference, not only do you get wonderful tips and great networking, but you get a sense of pride in the job of call centers. Our president says that it is our craft, and this conference made me feel like it was really a professional profession.
ContactCenterWorld.com: What would you tell somebody from a competing contact center about entering this competition? Is it worthwhile?
Laurie: It is. We don't know what the awards are like at this point because we are just going to go into the award dinner, but the value overshoots the winning of any award. I would say that there were a lot of outsourcers here this time, and I would like to compete against even more.
