ORLANDO, FL, March 08, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Deedback Solutions, an innovative provider of solutions for resort managers with membership accounts in arrears, was a proud platinum sponsor at the highly-anticipated GNEX 2014 Conference in Sarasota, Florida, 9-12 February 2014 (http://perspectivemagazine.com/gnex).
In addition to its platinum level status at the GNEX 2014 Conference, Deedback Solutions was a sponsor of the event's keynote speaker - Captain Richard Phillips of the Maersk Alabama. Captain Richard Phillips is the real-life inspiration for the recent award winning movie "Captain Phillips", starring Tom Hanks. Phillips shared with GNEX attendees his thrilling and inspirational account of being held hostage by Somali pirates and some of the lessons in leadership that he drew from his experience.
The audience was speechless as he discussed the vital importance of leadership and teamwork, combined with a belief in the power and potential of yourself and your team, as seen through the eyes of an unassuming hero who conquered an extraordinary challenge.
"I believe this is where we learned of the 'real' Captain Phillips and how he overcame the obstacles before him to get his life back on course," said Walter Elvy, Sales Manager for Deedback Solutions. "As much as I enjoyed hearing Captain Phillips share his intense story of survival, I found the Q & A session to be absolutely engaging."
Deedback Solutions (DBS) compliments existing collection efforts to give any resort an opportunity to generate substantial revenue from delinquent accounts. DBS is designed to streamline the process and minimize the number of foreclosures of the accounts in arrears.
Dubbed the "Global Meeting of Minds," GNEX is a timeshare, travel and hospitality conference that attracts industry leaders from over 100 companies spanning six continents. Attendees gather to network, find new business opportunities and participate in interactive panel sessions comprised of more than 30 guest speakers that debate pertinent issues and trending topics within the vacation ownership industry.
"Year after year, we look at how to deliver even more value to our attendees, and with the help of Deedback Solutions, we feel that having such a publicly known figure as Captain Phillips for our keynote speaker certainly is another step up for the GNEX Conference platform," said Paul Mattimoe, President and CEO, Perspective Group. "We look forward to Deedback Solution's continued support at future GNEX Conferences."
