Tri Tuns’ Virtual Customer Success (CS) Training
Apr 23 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Is the pressure on to prevent customer churn and get more renewals, referrals and account expansions? You’re not alone! This is a common struggle for Customer Success (CS) professionals around the globe.
SaaS businesses rely on “customers for life”, but creating a network of loyal customers is becoming harder and harder as customers have more options and opportunities to churn. More options for your customers means securing renewals year after year is no longer just about your products. It’s also about the interactions your customers have with you and the services you provide to help them experience unbeatable value and success with your products.

It takes CS professionals years of trial and error to learn what we can teach you in as little as five weeks of virtual CS training. Our training is based on 20+ years of hard work and experience in the field to provide you the key knowledge and step-by-step actions that drive immediate and long-term value, growth and recurring revenue.

How it works:
Open to the public – anyone from anywhere can participate, individuals or teams are welcome.

You get 10 online training courses available 24/7 to watch when and where it’s convenient for you.

You get 5 live, expert-led virtual group training sessions that take place every Tuesday from 11:00 – 12:30 EDT from May 15 – June 12, 2018. Sessions will be recorded and accessible 24/7.

Plus you get our FREE post-training bonus of 3 group coaching calls worth $900. Coaching calls are 60 minutes each, 1 call per month for 3 months post-training, to reinforce learning and answer new questions that come up once you get back to working with your clients.

Course topics include, but are not limited to the following:

Examine the roles and expectations for CSMs in enabling and driving your customers’ success.

Learn how to establish yourself as a strategic partner and trusted adviser for your customers right from the start.

Understand key processes and actions you should take as part of your CS playbooks before Go Live, at Go Live and post Go Live to secure renewals year after year.

And if you register by April 15, 2018, you’ll receive a 10% discount off the regular price of $899.
What are you waiting for? Give your knowledge, skills, tools and confidence a boost and breakthrough the CS challenges that are taking up so much of your valuable time and energy. In as little as 5 weeks, we’ll teach you how to:

Lead customers through all phases of the relationship from initial contact through renewal year after year!

Significantly increase customer retention, referrals and account expansions by helping your customers experience a ton more value from your products and services!

Experience excellent relationships with you customers who will recognize and acknowledge your extraordinary value!

Be seen as the role model and hero in your organization for achieving extraordinary growth, revenue and customers for life!

Your success is important to us and your customers.
We look forward to getting to know you and earning your trust.

BWI Business Professionals Weekly Lunch
Apr 23 @ 12:00 pm

BWI Business Professionals (BWI Biz Pros) is an independent group of local business people who formed to maximize the businesses of our members through qualified referrals. We are an industry-exclusive organization; only one member of any profession is permitted in the group.

We meet for lunch every Tuesday. There are no outside speakers at our lunch meetings. Instead, each member is given the opportunity to speak and go into depth in his/her area of expertise, educating the members so that we can serve as an additional “sales team.”
On the 2nd Tuesday of the month, in lieu of our usual lunch meeting, we host a happy hour at a local establishment in order to grow our group and give local businesses an opportunity to network without a fee.

We promote and encourage the “one-to-one” technique of getting to know the business of other members. Through regular lunch meetings, our monthly happy hour, and independent coffee meetings, relationships are built, and thus we all become better referral partners for everyone in the group.

We encourage potential new members to join us at our lunch meeting &/or a happy hour to get to know the existing membership. Any potential member is evaluated by the membership committee to determine how we can help that person grow his/her business and if it’s a good fit for both parties. Our annual membership fee is reasonably price for a small business owner. Those funds are used to further our networking and for the occasional charity event.

Tri Tuns’ Virtual Customer Success (CS) Training
Apr 30 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Is the pressure on to prevent customer churn and get more renewals, referrals and account expansions? You’re not alone! This is a common struggle for Customer Success (CS) professionals around the globe.
SaaS businesses rely on “customers for life”, but creating a network of loyal customers is becoming harder and harder as customers have more options and opportunities to churn. More options for your customers means securing renewals year after year is no longer just about your products. It’s also about the interactions your customers have with you and the services you provide to help them experience unbeatable value and success with your products.

It takes CS professionals years of trial and error to learn what we can teach you in as little as five weeks of virtual CS training. Our training is based on 20+ years of hard work and experience in the field to provide you the key knowledge and step-by-step actions that drive immediate and long-term value, growth and recurring revenue.

How it works:
Open to the public – anyone from anywhere can participate, individuals or teams are welcome.

You get 10 online training courses available 24/7 to watch when and where it’s convenient for you.

You get 5 live, expert-led virtual group training sessions that take place every Tuesday from 11:00 – 12:30 EDT from May 15 – June 12, 2018. Sessions will be recorded and accessible 24/7.

Plus you get our FREE post-training bonus of 3 group coaching calls worth $900. Coaching calls are 60 minutes each, 1 call per month for 3 months post-training, to reinforce learning and answer new questions that come up once you get back to working with your clients.

Course topics include, but are not limited to the following:

Examine the roles and expectations for CSMs in enabling and driving your customers’ success.

Learn how to establish yourself as a strategic partner and trusted adviser for your customers right from the start.

Understand key processes and actions you should take as part of your CS playbooks before Go Live, at Go Live and post Go Live to secure renewals year after year.

And if you register by April 15, 2018, you’ll receive a 10% discount off the regular price of $899.
What are you waiting for? Give your knowledge, skills, tools and confidence a boost and breakthrough the CS challenges that are taking up so much of your valuable time and energy. In as little as 5 weeks, we’ll teach you how to:

Lead customers through all phases of the relationship from initial contact through renewal year after year!

Significantly increase customer retention, referrals and account expansions by helping your customers experience a ton more value from your products and services!

Experience excellent relationships with you customers who will recognize and acknowledge your extraordinary value!

Be seen as the role model and hero in your organization for achieving extraordinary growth, revenue and customers for life!

Your success is important to us and your customers.
We look forward to getting to know you and earning your trust.

BWI Business Professionals Weekly Lunch
Apr 30 @ 12:00 pm

BWI Business Professionals (BWI Biz Pros) is an independent group of local business people who formed to maximize the businesses of our members through qualified referrals. We are an industry-exclusive organization; only one member of any profession is permitted in the group.

We meet for lunch every Tuesday. There are no outside speakers at our lunch meetings. Instead, each member is given the opportunity to speak and go into depth in his/her area of expertise, educating the members so that we can serve as an additional “sales team.”
On the 2nd Tuesday of the month, in lieu of our usual lunch meeting, we host a happy hour at a local establishment in order to grow our group and give local businesses an opportunity to network without a fee.

We promote and encourage the “one-to-one” technique of getting to know the business of other members. Through regular lunch meetings, our monthly happy hour, and independent coffee meetings, relationships are built, and thus we all become better referral partners for everyone in the group.

We encourage potential new members to join us at our lunch meeting &/or a happy hour to get to know the existing membership. Any potential member is evaluated by the membership committee to determine how we can help that person grow his/her business and if it’s a good fit for both parties. Our annual membership fee is reasonably price for a small business owner. Those funds are used to further our networking and for the occasional charity event.

Our panel of experts will detail the advantages and disadvantages and share some important factors to consider with ANY form of funding, including time invested and timing for you, the complexity of these types of funding and the cost to you.

BWI Business Professionals Weekly Lunch
May 7 @ 12:00 pm

BWI Business Professionals (BWI Biz Pros) is an independent group of local business people who formed to maximize the businesses of our members through qualified referrals. We are an industry-exclusive organization; only one member of any profession is permitted in the group.

We meet for lunch every Tuesday. There are no outside speakers at our lunch meetings. Instead, each member is given the opportunity to speak and go into depth in his/her area of expertise, educating the members so that we can serve as an additional “sales team.”
On the 2nd Tuesday of the month, in lieu of our usual lunch meeting, we host a happy hour at a local establishment in order to grow our group and give local businesses an opportunity to network without a fee.

We promote and encourage the “one-to-one” technique of getting to know the business of other members. Through regular lunch meetings, our monthly happy hour, and independent coffee meetings, relationships are built, and thus we all become better referral partners for everyone in the group.

We encourage potential new members to join us at our lunch meeting &/or a happy hour to get to know the existing membership. Any potential member is evaluated by the membership committee to determine how we can help that person grow his/her business and if it’s a good fit for both parties. Our annual membership fee is reasonably price for a small business owner. Those funds are used to further our networking and for the occasional charity event.
