When things go wrong

Presentation1This week I attended the Pumper Cleaner Environmental Expo in Indianapolis. By all appearances, this is a very well-managed convention and here’s a concrete reason why I can say that.

I was especially looking forward to one of the seminars on Tuesday. The timing was somewhat inconvenient, but I adjusted my schedule to make sure I could attend. However, when I arrived at the designated room at the appointed hour, a “SEMINAR CANCELLED” sign had been placed outside the door.

The first reaction of course was irritation and several of us gathered inside the meeting room expressing our mutual annoyance. Then however, someone from the show’s management appeared. To begin with, he apologized and then went on to explain that the speaker had gotten caught up in the blizzard back home in the country’s midsection. The speaker wasn’t going anywhere for at least a couple of days. Then, he projected on the screen several on-line resources that the speaker had recommended in lieu of his presence. He also recommended a couple of other seminars down the hall that were happening at the same time.

Once again, it showed that when things go wrong, there’s a good way and a bad way to handle them. The easy thing for this individual to have done was to just leave the sign there and not deal with it. However, by showing up personally and explaining what had happened and offering alternatives, no one left the room grumbling. A job professionally done.

  1. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into
    any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has
    a lot of exclusive content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any methods to help reduce content from being ripped off? I’d truly
    appreciate it.

  2. An outstanding share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a friend who has been doing a little homework on this. And he actually ordered me lunch due to the fact that I discovered it for him… lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending the time to discuss this topic here on your blog.

  3. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

    I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% sure.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Kudos

  4. This “hole in the soul” feeling of being unlovable and alone can propel you to attach quickly and fall in love at almost any cost.
    Second, I don’t want to hear boasting about menstruation on my
    Facebook. New York State has recently joined the other 49 states in the union with a no-fault divorce law which can be alleged when a married party deems the
    marriage to have been irretrievably broken.

  5. Some I did secretly, under a blanket on the airplane and in the hospital; others I
    did in the open. Electronic cigarette’s seem to be the wave of the future concerning new ways of delivering the satisfying dose of nicotine in a safe and less harmful manner.
    The slimmer and also reduced styles make them very lighter than very mini designs.
