Customer Service
  You might not know it, but we are all in the business of Customer Service. Every one we meet, speak to over the phone, email  can have a huge impact, it creates a reaction, whether that be positive or negative is up to you, but remember, you only have one opportunity to make a good first impression.     My goal in life is to always have a positive outcome no matter what and most importantly take ownership of everything you do. Take pride in everything you do. Accept nothing less than 100% and always, always give it all you have and do your very, very best.

"Au revoir Andrew – Good-bye is unlikely – I’m sure we’ll meet again.  In the meantime, thank you again for the fantastic contribution you made on OMR. You and the implementation team were rock solid and the foundation piece for OMR’s success"

“I would like to say thank you for making my first coaching season exceptionally welcoming. I would like to thank Andy for putting all his hard work into this year in making the girls develop as a team. As a coach, I have learned a lot more about positioning plays and can understand what Andy is trying to communicate to with the girls”

“Ditto to all the praise and kind words that have been heaped on your shoulders via email the last week. Thanks for doing a great job of coaching the girls and we appreciate all the time and effort you have put in.Alex has really enjoyed the team, the coaching and this season”

” just wanted to say thank you so much for everything this season. You may not know it, but you coaching me made a huge impact on my personal development and confidence this year. I greatly appreciate everything you have done for me as well as the team. I know I can speak for everyone when I say you will be greatly missed”

“I just wanted to let you know that you'll be missed this season, not only by me but also from the whole team. I've learnt more this year than I have learnt all throughout my soccer seasons with other coaches. I just wanted to say thanks for being such a great coach, and hopefully we will see each other out on the field one day”

“Coaches are sort of like superheroes to the kids, they look up to them so much. What a coach says to them can really impact their self esteem.How does it feel to be a superhero?”

“Thank you very much for all that you have done.  Your positive, encouraging and upbeat manner towards the kids (and parents) is very much appreciated by the team, and of course by us parents.  All season long I heard the new kid's parents saying how wonderful you are.  Some even said that that their kids learned more this season, from you, than the last two years that they have been in soccer.  I think having coaches, like you, that are very passionate about this particular sport and that are very committed shows well in the team.  Look at us!  Undefeated for the season!  I guess what I am really trying to say is THANK YOU for an enjoyable season of soccer “

“Thank you for an outstanding year of soccer. You went above and beyond the call of duty as a coach. You had high expectations of the girls but you were also fair. You have been the best soccer coach Alex has ever had. Her respect and admiration of you is unlimited, as is ours. Thank you for you’re seemingly never ending patience and humor”

Summary

To complement my strong leadership skills, enthusiasm and dedication, I know I can be an asset to any company. Teamwork and customer service are extremely important to me. My fellow co-workers tell me that I am cooperative and always provide a high level of service.

I understand that reviewing several resumes for the position in question makes it very difficult to judge the calibre of the individuals that send them. If your organization is seeking a self-motivated team player that can do an excellent job for you with minimum supervision, then I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you in person to discuss how I would contribute to your organization.

ICBC Office 2007

ICBC asked to share Office 2007 rollout success

When even Microsoft notices how quickly and efficiently you do a technology upgrade, you know you’ve achieved something out of the ordinary.

That’s what happened with ICBC’s recent Office 2007 rollout. A team of fewer than 100 updated 6,000 PCs, laptops and tablets across the province in just four months, and Microsoft was impressed enough to ask if we’d share our ideas and best practices with other organizations.

“Other companies are trying to figure out how to successfully implement similar rollouts,” explains project sponsor Gary Eastwood, director of IS Transformation.

“Microsoft’s interest in how we tackled the challenges without compromising timing validates our team’s expertise and efforts. It’s rewarding to know we’ve made such a positive impact on Microsoft and are being asked to communicate our experience to others.”

Andrew Dodge, in charge of electronically deploying the software, agrees. “This says a lot about working together as a team. It was a big project in a short time-frame and the results affected everyone in the company. It was very challenging.”

Beyond just inviting us to share our knowledge with other organizations, the software giant also connected us with the team that is now planning to roll out Office 2007 at BC Hydro.

Shelby Ma, one of our Office 2007 rollout team members, was among those who recently met with the utility company. “Hydro wanted to know how we deployed the software so fast. In this case, there are some similarities between our two companies in rolling out a product.

“For instance, we both have offices spread across the province, so we can pass on ideas of what worked for us, like having identified focal points in each claim centre outside the Lower Mainland to provide on-site support.”

Other keys to quick deployment included testing user-macros beforehand and choosing an online self-training model, a new approach at ICBC.

“We’ve met with BC Hydro twice now, and I think it was informative for them and for what they’re planning to do,” Shelby adds.

The knowledge transfer worked both ways. The ICBC team came away with some tips for this year’s rollout of Office Communicator (instant messaging), which BC Hydro has already implemented.

It’s always our goal to give great service, whether we’re renewing someone’s driver’s licence or rolling out a technology upgrade to employees.  But it feels pretty good to have an industry leader like Microsoft holding us up as an example to help other organizations do the same.
