Friday, June 4: Customer Service: Are You Part of the Solution? Part 2 Q&A
In March, Troy Becktel presented at our Coffee, Lunch, and Learn on the topic of customer service, which is not a department, but rather a commitment to “best in class” interaction skills. Whether the brand is yourself or your organizations, it is imperative that you know what is important. In the previous session, Troy shared the keys to a “most desired brand” roadmap.
The presentation was so insightful that we were unable to get to all the questions from the audience. In order to further the conversation, Troy is joining us again on Friday, June 4 to answer your questions!
Troy Becktel has more than 30 years of experience in the RV industry, serving many years as the VP of Service for RV manufactures. As a corporate executive, coach, husband, father, and now grandfather, Troy was blessed with many life-lessons, paving the way to what right looks like. He believes that all situations, even the toughest ones, can help one grow and succeed with perseverance and determination.
Friday, June 11: What RV Customers Would Like To Tell the RV Industry with StressLess Camping
On Friday, June 11, the couple behind StressLess Camping will lead a discussion with the RV Women’s Alliance on the topic of “What RV customers would like to tell the RV industry. This is an opportunity for members from across the RV industry–manufacturers, suppliers, campgrounds, and dealers to gain insight to the RV consumer.
Camping really is in Peggy’s blood. She was conceived on a camping trip. With her parents and siblings Peggy camped throughout childhood. And she didn’t stop as an adult, working for a travel trailer manufacturer and camping in a tent or even the back of her SUV. Peggy is grateful for the comforts of camping in a travel trailer now that the ground seems so far away.
As a youngster, Tony would skip the fair rides to visit RV salespeople. At 10 he bought his first RV – a Tonka Winnebago – which he still has to this day! Tony worked in the RV industry handling sales and warranty claims while also overseeing a number of websites and social campaigns.
Whenever possible, Peggy and Tony hitch up their 19’ travel trailer and get away from it all. With their RVing experience the pair loves to help newbies, and learn from experienced campers. They also enjoy giving presentations and tips at RV shows and other events. StressLess Camping came from Peggy and Tony Barthel’s experience with people stepping into the RV lifestyle and finding themselves full of questions with no single place to get honest answers. With regular written articles along with a weekly blog and presence on all major social media channels, StressLess Camping is a great resource for people new to the RV lifestyle as well as those who have been enjoying RVing for years and are looking for some great tips presented in a fun way.
