"This Spring in Memphis, Midwest ENERGY Association (MEA) has put together an industry-leading agenda focused on leadership and the ever changing customer expectations" said, Timothy Burke, vice president of customer service and public affairs for Omaha Public Power District and chair of MEA’s Board of Directors. MEA’s Spring Executive Summit takes place at The Peabody in Memphis, TN from March 30-April 1, 2011.
Burke continues, "There have been numerous articles, papers and books written about leadership and customer centricity. The dialogue on these two critical elements of our business model should not be separately discussed. MEA’s agenda this spring will focus on the inter-dependency of excellent leadership and exceeding customer expectations. Gallup Corporation would suggest that excellent leadership practices drives employee engagement which in turn drives customer engagement and exceptional customer satisfaction.
This year’s MEA Spring Summit will challenge us to think about how these elements are interdependent and what our next steps should be as utility executives. This is not a Summit to miss!"
