I participate in networking events that typically offer attendees the opportunity to share testimonials about doing business with other members. I love to offer “kudos,” a “shout-out” or a brief testimony of my positive experience and I’m not shy about getting up front on the microphone. If I’ve had a great experience, good service, or used an exceptional product, I want to not only publicly thank that business, but I want to help them grow and attract new customers. Social media has provided the opportunity to instantly and publicly rate and review services and products which can be detrimental to a business if the ratings are consistently poor. In my opinion, the value of a good testimony or a positive rating is priceless!
Here is what Executive Coach, Lyn Cikara said about our last Amplify! Event:
“The Amplify! Success conference I attended last October had a significant impact on me. I learned so much! My profession as an occupational therapist for many years had me focusing on getting people back to work after physical, mental and emotional illness. I thought that I was pretty knowledgeable. At Amplify! Success, I heard stories and opportunities that were created for people with the desire to work who would not typically have had job opportunities.
Amplify! has created an opportunity to fill the current unemployment shortages in an innovative way where employers get their work done, and employees with disabilities can have dignity and purpose. Karen Gaffney, the keynote speaker at the conference, had an impact on me when she highlighted the fact that after school many young people with disabilities have no hope, no purpose for getting up in the morning and see no future. What Amplify! offers is hope, dignity and a future. What a special contribution to our community and society.”
We encourage you to take time out of your day to spend 2.5 hours with us; you will be encouraged, inspired and equipped to take action toward creating greater purpose and hope for people with disabilities.
We look forward to seeing you on May 23rd, and we can’t wait to share your testimony!
Secure your spot now and plan on another inspiring morning full of success stories and celebrations!
