Keynote Rita Suiter

Rita Suiter


The Women’s Weekend’s Keynote Speaker is someone we first heard speak at the WV Governor’s Tourism Conference – and she blew us away! We are bringing in Rita Suiter, owner of Five Star Customer Service Strategies, because she offers attendees a wealth of information for professional development implement, no matter your industry.

Your Front-Line Impacts Your Bottom Line

Rita will be talking about identifying and implementing key customer experience concepts. You won’t want to miss her fun and informative talk!
