The Guest Encounter: Better Service, Better Performance, Better Results

What happens when a “guest” (customer, client, patron, or patient) encounters your organization? Many business owners and managers feel they already have customer service and sales under control. They believe additional training is not an issue.  However, if our team has learned one lesson from decades of secret shops, it is this: Every encounter makes an impression. Each encounter holds the power to nurture your relationship or nick it, to build your business or bruise it. Now, Laurie shares her insight to help you improve customer service.

Attendees learn:

  • Three different categories of encounters and how each impacts the bottom-line
  • Ways to self-assess customer service levels
  • High-impact opportunities to shine that the competition is most likely missing

Everyone walks away with a Guest Encounter Audit Guide that explains how to achieve a high score on every type of guest interaction. But wait, there’s more! Attendees will also learn Laurie’s “simple six pack” to improve their customer service levels overnight.
