The BBB Excellence in Customer Service Award is a comprehensive customer service improvement program run by volunteers, and all BBB accredited businesses in Southern Colorado are invited to participate. Participants compete against criteria for the award, not against each other. Therefore, there can be multiple award winners each year. Throughout the process, the evaluators ensure customer service is front and center of each and every business that goes through this process. Receiving recognition is based on obtaining measurable data and implementing the findings in such a manner that customer service continues to be improved upon. Any business receiving this award is granted the opportunity of using the Excellence in Customer Service Award logo on marketing, advertising, and promotional materials. This workshop is geared to businesses interested in learning more on what the award is and the benefits of applying. Hear from past winner Eric St. Pierre, Two Men and a Truck about the process, what is involved, and lessons learned from applying.

The BIZMODEL Workshop offers systematic methodologies of business development strategies to deliver value and innovation to business planning offering a new perspective on business strategy using a business model template which will help you: 1. Identify your true business model and niche 2. Identify your real customer segments 3. Focus on the big picture (lowering the planning risk) 4. Reach beyond existing demand to show the scalability of the business 5. Develop the strategic sequence for the business 6. Identify key organizational hurdles 7. Build execution into the strategy How to structure the business to insure future growth using a reproducible manner, leading to opportunity while minimizing risk To help ensure the business model can be implemented in a way that it supports a viable business each participant will be given a follow up appointment to complete a business model that can be implemented/or presented to a lending institution.

What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You: Employment Law Changes for 2017 Whether your organization has one employee or 100, your employment policies and practices are impacted by laws and regulations that originate at the Federal, State, and local levels.
