Rich Obertots and John Chamberlin offer frustrated outreach and marketing specialists a better and more efficient method of having a more productive outreach day
Boardman, OH, February 7, 2013—OutreachU™ is a series of principles that bring High Definition to organizations’ Outreach activities resulting in improved work habits for the outreach professionals as well as the opportunity for understanding and improving your organization’s relationship with the RIGHT CUSTOMERS, CONSISTENTLY. Whether it’s through presentations, onsite training with your team, or webinars, OutreachU provides companies with the specific education, training, and tools to improve their Outreach effectiveness.
Who’s Behind OutreachU?
OutreachU, a product of ThinkThroughTools, was co-created by Rich Obertots and John Chamberlin.
Obertots has more than 33 years of experience working in healthcare and other industries. Although he earned an MBA, the tools he has developed came about through often brutal, yet high-yielding trial and error. Through his inventive mentoring, coaching, systems and hard-charging efforts, clients willing to commit throughout Australia, Canada and the USA achieved substantial and durable success. Obertots has also instructed healthcare marketing, management and emergency medical technology courses at the university level. He has delivered presentations worldwide at international and national medical events and for international healthcare companies.
Chamberlin has more than 25 years of experience in healthcare as a clinician, administrator and educator as well as executive level corporate experience overseeing marketing and public relations in both B-to-B and B-to-C organizations. He has been involved in assisting profit and nonprofit organizations grow market share, grow their brand and grow their ultimate line. The bottom line is one thing, the ultimate line is a combination of goodwill, revenue, expenses.
What Will Participants Learn from OutreachU?
OutreachU focuses on the various principles of OutreachU including the Target Matrix, the use of Social Media to enhance outreach, customer focus reflex and P20C*V2 – The Epic Equation to Improve Your Bottom Line.
While there is a common thread in the word of “outreach,” no two Outreach efforts are exactly the same. Obertots and Chamberlin will help outreach and marketing specialists conduct a strategic think through of their current outreach activities. Even before training begins, they will use their trademarked “10 Essential Elements of an Outreach System” to evaluate an organization’s current outreach activities and provide a feedback report.
Who Has Benefited from OutreachU?
Clients range the full spectrum, from, top tier national medical technology companies to leading university healthcare systems as well as small and medium-sized organizations.

YSU Metro College Course Helps Outreach Professionals Understand and Astonish the Right Customers ConsistentlyThinkThroughTools : January 25, 2013 2:49 am : Media Room, ThinkTank
Boardman, OH, January 24, 2013—Does this scenario sound familiar? You attend an Outreach workshop hosted by a dynamic speaker and leave fired up with some great ideas to implement. But a few days later, overwhelmed with your daily work routine, those great ideas and energy simply fizzle out.
Outreach education should not be a one-shot deal. What you learn should be integrated and flowing forward in your Outreach initiatives.
That is why ThinkThroughTools, a national Outreach Systems firm based in Boardman, OH, has teamed up with YSU Metro College, to offer its 10-week OutreachU ESSENTIALS course beginning January 24, 2013. Through this program, participants can engage in actual continuing outreach education.
“Many many years ago we used to instruct only full-day workshops until we found that continuous-flow Outreach education is the ideal method,” says ThinkThroughTools’ CEO, Rich Obertots. “Outreach professionals have to have alternatives to ‘traditional’ workshops.”
The course focuses on proven high-engagement principles, techniques, and tools that produce high-yield outcomes. The presenters, Obertots and John Chamberlin, principal of ThinkThroughTools, will also use Ving technology to interact with the participants online to help verify each learner’s knowledge of OutreachU Essentials.
“There has never really been a ‘how to’ on outreach. This is it,” says Chamberlin. “We have understood the world of outreach for many years, from employment profiles of those who do it to ways of tracking outreach activity and associating it with responses from your targets.”
Among participants in this first course are YSU faculty and staff, several healthcare organization outreach professionals, a director of a psychology practice, a CEO of a corporate/governmental security agency, and a manager of leading national music store chain to name a few.
“It’s a broad group and all will benefit from OutreachU which amplifies how organizations understand and astonish the right customers consistently through Outreach,” says Obertots.
Learn how to raise and sustain more revenue using proven OutreachU™ principles, processes, techniques and technologies at YSU Metro College this winter.

But, in today’s economy with on-demand lifestyles, outreach, two-way human and electronic engagement with customers and community can be a new and novel competitive advantage for organizations of all sizes and types to raise more revenue.
OutreachU™ will provide proven principles, processes, techniques and technology know-how to enable increased branding and customer and community engagement to result in increased revenue.

(Boardman, OH), Sept. 12, 2012—Every day hundreds of individuals around the country are attending Outreach seminars, getting some new ideas and information, getting all fired up, and maybe even taking home some nifty Outreach hand-outs or apps.
Yet, their enthusiasm begins to wane as early as the next day as they head back to work.
They may be overwhelmed with putting out Outreach fires, trying to get things done and, of course, archiving the hand-outs and, for the most part, not implementing what was learned at the seminar.

(Boardman, OH)—If you want to distinguish your organization from the competition, you better be unique and progressive in your Outreach approach.
To better help Outreach teams break away from the mundane, routine thought process, ThinkThroughTools, LLC, recently teamed up with hit songwriter Kirsti Manna (Blake Shelton’s “Austin,” and Big & Rich’s, “Loud,” and more) to conduct an OutreachU™ workshop, “Creative Courage: How to be an Outreach Artist,” which helped clients unleash their creativity using proven OutreachU™ principles, processes, techniques, and technologies.
Held Aug. 14 in Asheville, NC, at the Hilton Biltmore Park in Asheville, NC, the Outreach team from Carolinas Healthcare System’s MedCenter Air was one of the groups participating in the first-ever Creative Courage workshop.
“The Creative Courage workshop was an inspiring, creative outreach event,” said Jason Schwebach, Assistant Vice President, Outreach Development & Coordination, for MedCenter Air, part of the Carolinas Healthcare System, the second largest non-profit system in the country. “The expectations for our Outreach team were a learning experience where they learned Outreach tips, techniques and tricks. But what they also got out of it was how to be creative, how to think on their feet, and how not to be afraid to try.”
emsCharts and ThinkThroughTools is now offering a discount for any emsCharts customers who are not yet using the OutreachU™ module if you register before ATMC 2012.
