OBMA Annual Marketing Breakfast 2024

We hopped to it and discussed taking customer service and engagement to the next level! A huge thank you to Joon Han for talking to our membership about how to ‘Actually Win Word of Mouth’, be engaged with your customers in an authentic way and explained the Net Promoter Score in an easy way to understand. Held at St. Peter’s by the Sea, our early morning breakfast was informational and was a terrific way to share ideas. Congratulations to Bill McKinney, Carter Moss and J. Han who each won a 3-month OBMA Website Ad for guessing the closest # of candies in the jar. Which was 111 by the way! For those who couldn’t make the Annual Marketing Breakfast, we have copies of the handouts at the OBMA office.
