ContactCenterWorld.com: Is this your first conference?
Mark: Actually, it is, yes.
ContactCenterWorld.com: Your thoughts?
Mark: Love it! Just love it. It is a great way to network with other groups, share ideas, share best practices, share drama, which of course there always is. It has been very insightful.
ContactCenterWorld.com: Is this unique to other events that you may have been to within the industry?
Mark: I think that it is yes. There are a couple of other awards that we have done, that we have actually entered where we just submit our nominations and then were chosen for them. Whereas here, we actually have to present them in front of a jury of our peers, so to speak. Yes it is unique, it is almost as if it is a rite of passage that you have to do. I think that is great.
ContactCenterWorld.com: Will you come back?
Mark: Absolutely! Actually, another company brought people that were not presenting just so they can get an idea of how things go. So I think that next time we should do that as well.
ContactCenterWorld.com: What would you tell somebody that has never been, now that you have your feet wet?
Mark: I would say to be nervous, it is okay to be nervous. If you don't say that you are, you’re a liar. Just prepare and know your business.
ContactCenterWorld.com: Rewarding to actually go through the initial process. A lot of people say that you really have to channel down and that you have to focus on what makes you good and different and unique and that is why you are applying for the award…correct?
Mark: Absolutely! It really brings home the fact that you do a good job day in and day out because you really don't notice that. When you put it down into a 20 minute presentation you get all the good things that you have been doing for years and you whittle it down and it's like, yeah, we are best practice.
ContactCenterWorld.com: What was it like to spend 4 days networking and rubbing elbows with some people that are fighting the same good fight that you are?
Mark: Very good. I just emailed my director about this and I think the common theme here is human nature. Humans are humans regardless, and call center reps are call center reps. We all share the same pain and the same joy.
