People Are Talking!

By Cindy Bahl

How often do you rate, review or give a testimony about a business when you’ve used their services? Maybe you’ve had some work done on your car from a trusted local mechanic who not only took care of the services you paid for but also discovered a potential problem and made recommendations, saving you time and money while also providing great customer service. Did you take the time to give your mechanic a positive review?

Testimonials, reviews and ratings are especially important today in business. Most of us are using websites such as Google, Yelp, and Facebook to check out ratings and what people are saying about a business before purchasing a product or trying out a service. We want to know what others think and what their experience was like before we decide to try something new. Companies are working hard to get consumers to rate and write reviews, some even offer incentives like coupons or discounts on future transactions, all to help boost sales, create awareness and engagement with their audience.

So, if you missed the Amplify! Success event last October and are unsure about registering for our 2nd annual event coming up October 23rd at Nike WHQ in Beaverton, don’t take my word for it that you should to attend! Here are just a few testimonials from past attendees:

  • “What an inspiring event. I learned so much and am looking forward to learning much more.” Maria Isabel Chandra, MBA – HR Administrator, Latino Network
  • “Such a wonderful presentation and stories.” Stacy Ruthrauff – HR Director, City of Tualatin
  • “Amazing Event!” Jennifer Edeline – Supervisor, Talent Acquistion, Providence Health & Services

People are talking about Amplify! Success and you won’t want to miss this year’s event with the theme: Disability Workplace Inclusion: What is Your Vision? It promises to be a morning with inspiration and information to help you create a vision for inclusion for yourself and in your workplace. We can’t wait to share your testimonies!
