Which Top Ranking Performer Award(s) did you enter and why did you choose it/them in the first place?

Can you tell us about the sense of pride you have now that you won a medal for your company and counttry?
This accomplishment was a direct result of the efforts, values and ethics demonstrated by our internal stakeholders, our Talent and Culture team for ensuring that every single new employee is a fit for our organization, Training for always making sure the learning material is robust and fun, Technology and Innovation on their implementation speed, Solutions Centre Supervisors and staff for always transforming negative car ownership events into positive brand experiences.

These awards are essential to any organization with a contact centre, the insights are invaluable as these events foster a collaborative format where leaders, executives and even frontline agents can share best practices, brainstorm on strategies or gain exposure to new in-market technologies to help improve their contact centre.
Lastly, as you have been to one of our events, how would you describe the ideas from fellow presenters - imagine you are writing a paragraph to encourage others to attend the entire event!
