Allison Rak will share her hugely popular session from this year’s Savannah conference on Hacks and other techniques that will help you scale your business without losing your mind!

In this fun and interactive session, Allison will share valuable advice and proven methods to help take your business to the next level, including methods and tools for:

  • report writing that will literally cut days off of your turnaround time,
  • conducting focus groups in any location, while enabling real-time client viewing on site or remotely
  • quickly and easily creating video or audio reels (truly!)
  • ways to very quickly find and work with external resources, including design, programming, etc.

Learn how your flexibility and nimbleness can be used to your advantage to provide services that your big company clients can’t do themselves.

After Allison shares her presentation, we will spend time sharing our own hacks, tips and tricks. Is there an app, a tool, a resource or technique that your fellow QRCs could use? If it helps you in your business, it might help someone else!
