Testimonials from the Spring 2006 Customer Reference Forum in San Francisco

"CR Forum was an excellent use of my time. Every session was valuable and applicable in my day-to-day responsibilities. Lots of great new ideas to bring back!"
Hope Hartman, Sr. Manager, Customer Programs, SSA Global

"I thought it was a first-rate event. I especially found valuable Fred Reichheld and Promise Phelon/Holley Garmany's presentations. I plan to incorporate many of the ideas from the conference into my program as soon as I capture the key problem areas and identify who/ what can help me solve the issues. I see this as a critical learning and networking program for all Customer Reference professionals."
