This year AMOCO decided to spotlight four companies at the luncheon; two businesses and two non-profit organizations.

The spotlight tables included:

• Hope Village- represented by Roger Proulx, who was there to promote Hope Village’s Passport to the World of Wine event on April 5th.

• Luna’s Mexican Restaurant- represented by Crystal Ivey, who was there to promote Luna’s restaurant on Highway 96 in League City.

Kent Hutchison, guest speaker from the C.J. Baxter Group, delivered an entertaining speech to inspire the businesses and organizations about customer service. No matter where you work we all have to provide the best service back to the people. Kent talked about “creating raving fans” by “sharpening your saw,” meaning one should constantly be improving and building their relationship with the people you interact with.
AMOCO would like to thank: the Hilton Hotel for providing the great venue and delicious food, our four spotlight tables that featured their businesses or organizations, and Kent Hutchison for his inspiring speech.
