We Want To Hear From You

imageToday is a very exciting day!! I am traveling to Chicago for the Wilbert Funeral Services annual Sales meeting, but while I am there I will be doing two sit down interviews for CDTV. The first interview I will be doing is with Tributes.com Vice President John Heald. John is speaking at the sales meeting on “Technology and The Funeral Industry”. I look forward to asking John about his presentation, Tributes.com, and he opinion of the state of the funeral industry.

The second interview I will be doing is with Rich Kizer and Georganne Bender from Kizer and Bender. Located just outside Chicago, Rich and Georganne will be traveling to meet me in the city, which I am very grateful for!! Kizer and Bender have done a number of keynote presentations at past NFDA conventions. They are merchandising gurus and have performed a number of funeral home case studies across the country. I am going to be asking Kizer and Bender about their case studies and what advise they can share with funeral homes regarding their merchandising techniques as well as displaying their products in the most effective way.

To get the most from these interviews, I need your help!!

Please email me any questions you would like me to ask John Heald or Kizer and Bender. I would love to be able to fire them a few great questions that will really benefit our members. This is a great opportunity to get answers to many of the questions you have about Tributes.com as well as merchandising your product to increase your profitability.

I will be meeting with John Heald today (Thursday January 28th) so don’t waste anytime. Kizer and Bender are scheduled for tomorrow January 29th. This is your chance…let your voice be heard!!!
