Blytheco’s Quest for Excellence – Developing Leaders from Within


Many companies talk about professional development and developing leaders from within.  At Blytheco, we are intentional about giving our team members opportunities to grow, lead, and share their expertise.

So at our recent Quest conference, instead of filling our schedule with outside speakers, we tapped into our own resident experts to share their knowledge with the whole team.

VP of Professional Services Phil Sim and Director of Business Accounts Jeff Blomstrom led a session on “Delivering an Excellent Customer Experience.”  Senior Manager of Business Solutions Alicia Anderson led a session entitled, “Writing Effective Communications to Unlock Relationships.” Apryl Hanson, Senior Director of Customer and Partner Strategy, led a session entitled, “Connecting With People and Making the Most Of Your Brand.”

The results were amazing!  Our team members raved about the great information learned, as well as how much they enjoyed hearing from our own leaders.  Here’s what they had to say in their own words.
