Three-part speaker series geared toward business owners

The Monroeville Area Chamber of Commerce will sponsor a three-part speaker series that kicks off in April.

International speaker Jeff Tobe, who focuses on customer experience, will speak during three separate sessions for the chamber’s “Enlighten. Discover. Grow. Evolve.” or “EDGE” series. The series will give participants information and practices to apply to their business, said a chamber news release.

“Jeff is a world-class speaker, and we are excited to have him present these valuable tools to our members and attendees,” said Sean Logan, president of the Monroeville Area Chamber of Commerce.

The first event will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. April 3 at Pugliano’s Italian Grill in Plum. The second and third events will take place at the same time and place on June 10 and September 11.

During the April event, Tobe will present “Coloring Outside the Lines: Creating a New Customer Experience.”

In June, the topic will be “Your Zipper is Open (and other miscommunication!): Effective Communication Tools for the 21st Century.”

In September, the topic will be “Working with Customers in a Way in Which They Need to be Worked With!”

Sessions cost $79 for MACC members and $129 for non-members. All three sessions are available for $199 for members and $299 for non-members.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
