ATA Washington Summit

This is the draft schedule of events for the ATA (American Teleservices Association) Regulatory event I am speaking at soon. As you can see, I will be speaking with Chris Hodges from Noble Systems, Larry Mark from SER, Jason Pace from Stratasoft, and Paul Stockford of Saddletree Research) on Monday, April 18th, 2005.

I will be addressing the future of the contact center with my esteemed panelists. I have lost of creative ideas on this subject and have promised to get my presentation to the ATA by tomorrow. Trouble is, it is an incredibly beautiful day and I am debating playing hooky today. I mean this is the first weekend we have seen sun in the northeast and it may even hit 70 degrees today. I am sure my readers in California cant relate but this is like a present from Mother Nature you just shouldn't waste.
