Bellingham, WA, United States, 2008/07/07 - The 2010 Service Initiative was created by Evergreen Team Concepts to prepare businesses for the accompanying traffic expected from the Winter Olympic Games through high quality training.
Evergreen Team Concepts specifically designed programs to raise the level of trained employees throughout Whatcom County and its surrounding areas with the intention to gear up businesses for the expected surge of traffic accompanying the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics. Whatcom County is half way between Vancouver, BC and Seattle.
Evergreen Team Concepts found quickly, with over 100 membership cards sold, that businesses were joining the 2010 Service Initiative for the high quality training at a low price. Participants such as Sterling Plans, Alcoa and others not directly affected by the Olympics traffic joined for the high quality training alone. The 2010 Service Initiative is subsidized for the business community through its sponsors: DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen, Hardware Sales, Hilltop Restaurant & Catering, Northwest Business Monthly and OfficeMax. The list of sponsors is growing as other businesses see the value of both participating in and supporting the 2010 Service Initiative.
2010 Service Initiative Membership includes:
• Attendance in four 3-hour training workshops each year. Topics include customer service, leadership, marketing, image management, human resources, computer skills and team building;
• Participation in web forums facilitated by national experts;
• Subscription and inclusion in quarterly e-newsletters covering Winter Olympics related and business interest topics;
• Business logos and website links included in each newsletter;
• Complimentary admission to networking lunch in August.
Mike Ridpath with Evergreen Team Concepts says, “The 2010 Service Initiative is starting to transform businesses throughout Northwest Washington. Without the 2010 Service Initiative sponsors none of this would have been possible, our gratitude goes out to all of our sponsors.”
The Winter Olympics will have an impact on Whatcom County and its surrounding areas. What we do with this opportunity is up to us. The 2010 Service Initiative equips you and your teams with the knowledge and competencies needed to run your organization in a highly visible and efficient manner. With its rare, premium training for only $149, members can now go to 4 workshops and receive additional online visibility thanks to the 2010 Service Initiative Sponsors.
