Series Overview:

In lieu of an in-person 3C’s conference this year, NWPPA will hold a 3C’s Month in October filled with a robust offering of popular NWPPA courses that we have run in the past as well as brand new content, all delivered as webinars!

While we would love to hold these events in person, we are taking advantage of the virtual experience to be as accommodating to team coverage schedules as much as possible and therefore making the content accessible to whole teams, not just those individuals that have the opportunity to travel to events.

We are holding courses Monday-Thursday in the morning and afternoon, keeping the course times to two hours or less, offering some courses twice during the month, and recording every webinar for those that cannot attend during the scheduled time. The recordings will be available for viewing until the end of the year in hopes it will give teams plenty of time to participate.

Speaking of teams, we are offering our popular group pricing discount where every fifth registration from an organization is free.

Register only for select courses by clicking on the titles above, or take advantage of a deep discount by registering for the entire series. A swag bag will be sent to everyone who registers for the entire series. 

Keynote Speaker:

In 1955, Walt Disney knew that consistent and outstanding customer experiences could lift his organization to greatness. His inspirational leadership created a deep emotional connection with his guests and cast members that endure to this day. This hyper focus on customer experience can be applied to other businesses, not just entertainment organizations.

Join Michael Donnelly, CEO of Donnelly Effect, LLC, for this special 3C’s Month keynote address to learn Disney-style strategies that inspire every employee to learn, care, and deliver customer experiences worthy of your utility’s brand.

You will learn how to:
    • Create Disney-Style world-class customer experiences
    • Differentiate customer service vs. customer experience
    • Leverage unique service language and symbols
    • Identify good show vs. bad show guest service approach
    • Understand on stage vs. back stage and its application
    • Utilize service recovery strategies and preserve the relationship

*Keynote address is an exclusive bonus event for registrants of the entire 3C's Month.

Series Recordings:

Webinar recordings can be made available to registrants who are unable to attend live.

Series Instructor:

Various instructors.

Series Schedule:

These webinars will be held October 4-October 28, 2021, at various times. 

How to Participate:

Instructions will be emailed to attendees within 12 hours of the webinar and we recommend that you test the link to the meeting as soon as you get the instructions. The webinar is best viewed using Chrome as your browser. We recommend that you use a landline for both your phone and your internet connections.

This registration is for one person to attend. We manage our webinars on an honor-system basis; if more than one person from a utility wishes to attend, each is to register separately.

Series Fees:

Utility Member Rate: $630
Associate Member Rate: $945
Non-Member Rate: $1,890

Note: Organizations that register a group of employees will receive every fifth registration for free. For example, if you register five employees, you only pay for four; register 10 employees, you only pay for eight; and so on. There is nothing additional you need to do to receive this discount.

Cancellation Policy:

Cancellations are accepted with a full refund as follows:

For webinars and virtual classes, if the request is made at least five days prior to the course, then 100% of the registration fee will be refunded.
