- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
When a new customer contacts me, I like to respond to them right away. I use the messaging system here on Thumbtack. It helps us keep track of everything we've discussed so we can refer back at any time for answers to any questions. That gives us a chance to really understand each other and come up with the best options for their event. Most often, new customers use our online availability checker, quote generator and online booking system. Within minutes they can see if the date is available, create their own custom package, get an exact price and book the date conveniently online as well as pay using our secure payment portal. Working with us could not be more quick, convenient and safe.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have 15+ years of hands-on experience as a Radio DJ, Recording Studio tech, Karaoke Host and DJ for weddings and parties. I'm very comfortable as MC. I've given over 6500 speeches, presentations and workshops over 3 continents and have been awarded the level of ATM-B and CL by Toastmasters(Public Speaking organization). I'm also an award-winning public speaker. You can be confident that your guests will feel comfortable and entertained when you choose me as your MC.
