Friday, April 26, 2019 | Service Organizations-Only Interactive Roundtable Focus Day: Put Your New Ideas Into Action!

For service organizations only or sponsors of this day

Your brain is spinning from the hundreds of great ideas you’ve heard and all the solution providers you’ve talked to that can help your service organization. Now what?! Don’t let overwhelm lead to inaction. The final day of Field Service will be centered around interactive conversation with only your service organization peers so you can put an action plan in place for the most important strategies you want to carry out.

Find out how other service organizations implemented the top projects you have in mind: what worked, what mistakes they made that you won’t have to, what they candidly think of the solution providers you’ve shortlisted. Roundtable conversations will focus on the key themes of the conference and will be an energizing, action-oriented way to end the event after three jam-packed days of conferencing.
