OKC Thunder's Pete Winemiller to Speak at OK Ethics Tulsa Chapter
The Tulsa Chapter of Oklahoma Business Ethics Consortium (OK Ethics) will host keynote speaker Pete Winemiller, senior vice president of guest relations, Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday, January 26, 2012.
Winemiller’s keynote presentation will be entitled, “Moments Matter! Building a Culture that Empowers Employees, Benefits Customers and Creates Loyalty Inside and Out.”
According to Winemiller, “people do not remember days, they remember moments. Your verbal and nonverbal communication with customers can make or break consumer loyalty in a split second,” said Winemiller. “That is because customers think more about their experiences with people than they do about products and services,” he stated.
Research shows retaining a consumer or sending him/her off to the competition comes down to the sum of countless interactions between customer and employee.
According to OK Ethics Tulsa Chapter president Michael Oonk, “Winemiller has been an executive for 16 seasons with NBA franchises. He is charged with creating repeat customers in a business environment where you cannot control the level of success on the basketball court - the purchased product - but you can control what happens in the stands - the fan experience,”
Winemiller has been recognized by 1 to 1 Magazine as one of a select few executives
in North America to be honored as a Customer Champion. His efforts have been noted by David Stern, Commissioner of the NBA, "for setting the gold standard for the NBA fan experience."
Attendees can expect the following takeaways from Winemiller’s presentation:
- Feel the power of thinking big & acting small
- Learn to design and maintain a culture of problem-solving
- Commit to telling the story your front-line staff dictates your bottom-line cash
- Find out how to CLICK with your guests
- Believe you can treat all of your customers differently, just as long as you treat all of them well
