November BTA:  
Robert Spector on the Nordstrom Way and Your Mom and Pop Shop
Retailing in the New Reality: How Managing Customer Experience Builds Brand and Die Hard Fans
11:30 AM - 1:00 PM  
Wednesday November 13, 2013  
Northwest Film Forum
1515 12th Ave.  
We're switching it up a little for the final Business Technical Assistance event of the year. World-renowned Robert Spector will share his insights on the Customer Experience. We're expecting a crowd, so no lunch will be provided, as we're moving to the NW Film Forum auditorium. Concessions will be available for purchase.
Robert Spector has been helping companies create their customer service experiences for over 30 years. 


Author of the business classic The Nordstrom Way: The Inside Story of America's Number One Customer Service Company, Robert is recognized worldwide as the ultimate authority on customer service and the Nordstrom Way.




Robert has been involved in customer service since the age of 13, when he first went to work in his mother and father's butcher shop in the farmers' market in Perth Amboy, New Jersey. Working alongside his parents, he learned firsthand what it takes to take care of customers-and to keep them loyal. 




Those lessons inspired another of his current books, The Mom & Pop Store, which features interviews with successful independent retailers from all over the world. Robert believes that the elements of world-class customer service are the same, whether they come from Spector's Meat Market, Nordstrom, or, the subject of his international bestseller Get Big Fast.
