NEW YORK, Dec. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 25 ambitious and energetic female entrepreneurs and healthcare industry experts are more connected after attending the IOMEDIA and XX in Health networking event on November 21. The event featured speaker Kerry Held, Director of Client Services at Hospitality Quotient® and it took place at the IOMEDIA West Chelsea office.
"The experience we offer comes from the people within the organization." This was one of the many principals regarding customer service that Kerry Held presented to the audience. As the Director of Client Services at Hospitality Quotient (a Danny Meyers owned consulting firm), Held's vast experience in the hospitality industry demonstrated a fresh take on how not only healthcare professionals, but anyone, can apply these lessons in their own work environment. From marketing managers, entrepreneurs, to healthcare consultants, everyone in the audience was able to relate and connect to the challenges presented.
Following the presentation, the networking session moved on to Hotel Americano, where the lively conversations continued. Jessica Aguilar, Strategist at IOMEDIA, commented, "The dinner consisted of a table full of up-and-coming women, discussing the current and future healthcare landscape and how it can be transformed. That's powerful." Held, enthusiastic about the audience and their response to the presentation also remarked, "I enjoyed discussing building cultures of hospitality within the healthcare industry. I was inspired by this conversation focusing on creating work environments with an emphasis on empathy and communication which can result in more opportunities for leadership roles for women."
This is the 2nd time XX in Health and IOMEDIA teamed up for event, and are looking forward to evolving the collaboration moving forward.
