Prepare-Care-Share was developed in partnership with a customer service-training consultant and customized to meet the specific needs of the Williamsburg area.  A great marketing effort can get people to visit once, but it's the experience and service that brings them back.  

Our 4-hour high-energy classroom training offers customer service best practices with a new approach on handling those “awkward” situations in our daily interactions with consumers.  

Prepare-Care-Share is also where you and your staff can get exciting updates on what is new in our region for 2017 including information about our attractions, new microbreweries, and exciting events for this year and beyond.
