winter conferencein St. Maarten
The Sonesta Ocean Point Resort in St. Maarten will be the site of the next Brainstorming/Five Stars
conference sponsored by the
National Cleaners Association and the Drycleaning and Laundry Institute.
Planned for Jan. 17-20, the conference gives cleaners a mid-winter break and time to gather and
network while hearing from top speakers.
Speakers lined up include keynoter John DiJulius, who will tell how to attract and retain millennial
employees and clients, and Arthur Greeno, who will explain the secret to Chick Fil-A’s success.
DiJulius, who spoke at the conference in 2015, is the author of Secret Service, Hidden Systems that
Deliver Unforgettable Customer Service, and What's the Secret? At this conference, he will share
insights and answers to the key questions about attracting and retaining millennial employees and
clients, a challenge he has been studying for some time.
Greeno is a long-time Chick Fil-A employee turned owner and is the author of two best-selling books,
Dysfunctional Inspiration and Breaking Conformity. He will discuss the fast food brand’s success during
his Sunday morning program. He will give his best tips for attracting media exposure and connecting
with clients and employees in creative ways.
The venue is a boutique, all-inclusive resort that lends itself to connecting everyone. All rooms have
an ocean view.
Room rates for two people double occupancy range from $500 to $760 per night.
There are only 129 rooms on the property so early sign-ups are encouraged.
