Is it really ……. just that easy?

#WRFProudPartner winner!

Our Proud Partner program was just rolled out new this summer, but Lynn Aspinwall of Sonic Foundry isn’t new to Wind River. Her experience and trust in Wind River made it an easy connection when she became the Exalted Ruler for the Madison Elks Lodge #410. Lynn, thank you for sharing your “Happy Moment” story and taking the initiative of passing along our story to other Elks Clubs around the state.

Did you know the Madison Elks Lodge #410 is located on the beautiful shores of Lake Monona, within walking distance of the Capitol Square, Monona Terrace, several hotels and also includes a private pier for boats. The Lodge features a full service bar, restaurant, and banquet facilities for up to 250 people. And by the way, for your own personal “happy moment” I hear they have one of the best Old Fashioned’s in town that pairs very nicely with the Fish Fry that can rival any supper club! However, you must be a member of the Elks, a guest of an Elk or sponsored by a member to share in the fun. Learn more about joining this private club that has been in Madison since 1898.

We want to thank those who participated in sharing their great stories, “happy moments”, compliments and referrals since the introduction of our #WRFProudPartner program. As the winner for this quarter, Lynn will be selecting something from our choice of great thank you prizes (see below).

We appreciate and look forward to hearing and sharing more #WRFProudPartner “happy moments”, compliments, stories and/or referrals from you. Just pass them along to any staff member at Wind River or to Matt Tomlinson our “Director of Happy Moments” mtomlinson@WindRiverFinancial.com or call him 608-441-7362.

You will automatically be entered in our next quarterly drawing and could win your choice of:
1. Badger tickets
2. Packer Tickets
3. Kalahari 1 night stay + additional gift card
4. Wollersheim Winery special event + gift card
5. Vortex optics
6. Electronics (Apple watch/iPad/GoPro)

Yes, and it really is…. just that easy!

 

#WRFProudPartner Celebrates You!

“A good life is a collection of Happy Moments” — a great quote by Denis Waitley and one of my personal favorites. I always smile when I hear it, read it or even just think about it, how can you not, right? You start thinking about Happy Moments. What’s better than that?!

During a recent companywide meeting, it was shared that over 80% of our business has come from referrals (Blog) which is pretty amazing. During that same meeting, several emails written by our customers were incorporated into the presentation and projected up on the big screen. The individual Wind River staff who were part of the email were asked to share the story with the entire company. It was great, we were sharing our customer’s happy moments that we helped create!

You could sense the mood of the entire room brightening. Then it began to take on a life of its own. Someone said, “We should share these at every meeting.” Another comment followed, “We should post these on our Facebook page.” And maybe the best suggestion, “We should really thank our customers for taking the time to share these with us!”

Low and behold, the Wind River Proud Partner #WRFproudpartner program was created.

Here’s how it works, really it’s pretty simple…

When a customer shares a “Happy Moment” with a member of the WRF staff, they send it to Matt Tomlinson, our Proud Partner Director. He collects them and shares them out to our entire team. Monthly, WRF will share some of the Happy Moments externally using the hash tag #WRFproudpartner. It is a great way to give our customers kudos via our blog and social media channels.

To add to the “moment” we will add each customer story to a list and one will be selected at random to receive a “thank you” gift each quarter. Check out these special quarterly “Happy Moment” gifts our staff came up with:

1. Badger tickets
2. Packer Tickets
3. Kalahari 1 night stay + additional gift card
4. Wollersheim Winery special event + gift card
5. Vortex optics
6. Electronics (Apple watch/iPad/GoPro)
7. Kessler’s, AC Zuckerman or Goodman’s Bling

#WRFproudpartner program, what a great way to share our client’s happy moments with us… after all, “A good life is a collection of Happy Moments.” Or maybe at Wind River we think “A good work life is a collection of our customer’s Happy Moments.” Have a Happy Moment or positive feedback for us?
