Seminar trainer Tami Burke is passionate about Montana and Montana hospitality. She is a talented facilitator who will motivate attendees to value their role in our tourism industry, expand their knowledge, connect with customers and take a fresh look at ways your business can not only attain rave reviews from visitors, but also keep them returning again and again. With strong connections to the Montana tourism industry, her service examples and suggestions will prompt thoughtful discussions and provide practical skills and tips which can be put to use immediately. Previous participants appreciated learning about the wealth of travel resources available, hearing stories to share from others in their community, obtaining new customer service perspectives and tactics, and experiencing the group interaction.
