ContactCenterWorld.com: Is this your first time?
Linda: First time at ContactCenterWorld.
ContactCenterWorld.com: What did you think?
Linda: I have to tell you quite honestly, about a month prior to coming here, I was not very happy that I was coming. I had too much to do, I had a lot of work to do, I had 2 sites to run, and so I was thinking of excuses of why not to come, but I am overwhelmed with all the information and the best practices that I have, and it has honestly re-energized me back into my job. I feel sorry for my team back in Las Vegas, because now I have a lot of great ideas and a lot of different spins on how we do things and how to look at things. It has given me a whole suitcase to take back and use in the site.
ContactCenterWorld.com: So what would you tell somebody that has never been?
Linda: First of all, I would say that companies that think that they couldn’t compete, you can compete. There are a lot of great people and a lot of great practices out there, but there is always the next best thing or some great idea, so compete. Send your rising stars to this conference because they will, again, get a whole suitcase full of best practices that they can take back.
ContactCenterWorld.com: We just spent 4 days listening to some pretty all-star characters in there right?
Linda: For sure. I am very impressed with the talent and contact centers, because, like I said in my presentation, you don’t really grow up thinking "What do I want to do? Ballerina or work in a contact center?" This is an industry that is growing and professional, and the talent that is out there is honestly amazing.
