LuAnn Buechler, CMP
"Get connected to your life's flow, everything's easier!"
LuAnn Buechler's professional life is akin to putting a lightning bolt in a box. She is energetic, inspiring and driven by a desire to help businesses and individuals discover what fuels them.
Accomplishing this requires the dynamic blend of LuAnn's unique experiences, education and background. As a Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) she brings over 25 years of experience in the hospitality industry to her own business, PMC Events and Travel. Not only can she do the planning; she can do the speaking and training. She is a certified facilitator of "The Passion Test". This provides her the opportunity to help businesses and individuals discover their passions and make decisions that lead to living a life filled with meaning, purpose and success. "There's a reason why people are where they're at. When they identify the reasons for why they are doing what they do, it provides focus and strengthens the business as well as the individual", LuAnn states. She believes the working climate changes when employees understand how a person's passions match up with a company's mission and goals creating success for both. This in turn is LuAnn's passion; helping people live a more joyful life. "I guarantee The Passion Test will change your life", says LuAnn.
"Caring is the competitive edge", LuAnn continues. This attitude of caring has translated into a new level of customer satisfaction. As co-author of the book Exceptional Care for Your Valued Clients she relates how customer service is no longer the correct wording for the way businesses need to care for their most valued assets, their clients."Caring for your customers is the ultimate competitive advantage", LuAnn states with certainty. To succeed businesses need to pay attention to this.
LuAnn also serves as a BNI (Business Network Intern-ational) Director. This position has allowed her to create a wealth of presentations covering topics from networking skills to relationship marketing. She is also a member of the Transformational Leadership Council working team. Created by Jack Canfield of the well known Chicken Soup for the Soul book series, this organization brings transformational leaders together to share best practices and co-create humanitarian projects.
LuAnn is eager to share her current focus, R.E.N.E.W., a Women's Retreat. RENEW (Rediscovering/ Educating/ Networking/ and Empowering/ Women, has been designed to provide the perfect combination of support, guidance, and skills to assist women in creating the vibrant, meaningful, joyful life they deserve. This special journey of self discovery, personal growth, education and relationship building promises to replenish and restore individual women's spirits and souls. "Women give so much as employees, business owners, partners, parents, daughters, the list goes on. This is an opportunity for them to find out how to achieve joy in their own lives", LuAnn relates. This event will be held November 9-10th at Miracle Lodge at Ironwood Christian Springs Ranch, Stewartville. (www.RenewWomensRetreat.com)
LuAnn holds a masters degree in Hospitality Administration from the University of Wisconsin-Stout as well as a undergraduate degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management, also from Stout. "My father was a teacher and growing up I always thought I would also be a teacher. My father however encouraged me to do something else and life circumstances lead me to the Hospitality Industry. But in actuality when I am presenting and speaking I am teaching. I am motivated by those “light bulb” moments when members of the audience are encouraged, enlightened and informed by my presentation. In the end, I am a teacher", LuAnn says with satisfaction.
While her work requires travel LuAnn's home base is Byron. Websites (listed below) provide more information about LuAnn's endeavors. LuAnn may be contacted at LuAnn@ PMCEvents.com or at 507-951-1468.
