The Oklahoma Quality Foundation (OQF) is a membership-based non-profit helping Oklahoma organizations to increase performance excellence, address key issues and improv the state’s business climate. OQF does this through workshops, conferences, and the Oklahoma Quality Awards.
Modeled after the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, the Oklahoma Quality Awards recognizes businesses and other organizations at various success levels. The award review process provides expert feedback, identifying key strengths and opportunities for improvement. Applicants receive at least 300 hours of review by business and quality experts.
We are working with the super talented Stephanie Bice at Smirk New Media to fine tune the organization’s message, better position their services and facilitate a strategic planning retreat for their board. Look for great, exciting things coming from this organization this year.
Our philosophy is the best clients find us for the right reasons. Most often, great clients (and potential clients) come to us through an existing relationship with a trusted professional or organization. Referrals benefit us and our clients.
New for 2014 is a formal Referral Program based on our previous casual referral “cash bonus” we offered friends and clients. Every client need is different so details will vary, but here is how it works:
Finders Fee – Tell us about a potential client, or tell them about us. We will provide you a small portion of the fees we charge for services.
Active Referral – We call this “putting us in a conversation” with a potential client. A bigger percentage than the Finder Fee for being more involved in creating a client relationship.
Participating Referral – Sometimes, the referring party has to help vetting and negotiating a working relationship that feels “right” to us and the potential client. We reward these efforts with a higher percentage than an Active Referral.
Collaborations – Our ultimate goal. Working side-by-side with your business to provide services and guidance to the client. We can manage the project or supplement the services you offer. Either way, everyone wins and you get an additional “bonus” for making the collaboration happen.
Know a business or non-profit that could benefit from our services, contact us for details on how you can participate in our Referral Program.
