The two days were chock-full of learning and sharing opportunities for all in attendance. Topics covered included a sharing of ideas on how to deliver best-in-class service to several market segments that include the end-user of our services, seniors and their families, as well as other organizations such as retirement residences, and the other professionals who are typically involved in a late-in-life move.
Further information was shared by representatives from St. Elizabeth and SolTerra. Kelly Brewster from Saint Elizabeth shared the variety of services their organization provides that can either be an add-on to, or occur after one has finished with, CCAC.
Shelley Raymond, the genius behind SolTerra Co-Housing shared the road her company has, and is, travelled on the journey of bringing co-housing into the public conscious as a truly valuable and viable housing option for seniors. We look forward to working with SolTerra in the future.
All in all, this was a valuable two days invested in not only business development, but perhaps more importantly, in learning how others are having success in achieving the Master-ASA’s stated goal of ‘Making Seniors Matter Again’.
