The Journey to a Customer-Focused Culture
Most successful companies have a knack for getting employees absolutely obsessed with customer service. Their secret is a customer-focused culture. A strong culture helps guide employee performance, shapes strategic decisions, and ultimately becomes part of the organization’s brand. This leads to many benefits that generate better bottom-line results:
• Increased customer loyalty
• Increased word-of-mouth referrals
• Fewer customer complaints

This entertaining and informative presentation shares three essential elements that leading companies use to develop customer-focused cultures. It incorporates a blend of experiential activities, examples from top companies, and cutting-edge research to help participants generate ideas to get their own employees obsessed with service.

Participants will gain the following:
• Experience three ways that culture can influence our employees’ actions.
• Identify three essential elements of a customer-focused culture.
• Discover tools to help you get your employees obsessed with service.

The Guaranteed Customer Experience
What if you could guarantee your customers an amazing experience—and then deliver on that promise every time?

This entertaining and informative presentation turns the concept of a guarantee on its head. An experience guarantee goes beyond merely warrantying a product against defects. It encompasses the entire customer journey to promise an experience that never falls short of expectations. Get an inside look at how leading organizations use experience guarantees to fuel customer-driven growth. Learn the real reasons people love these companies and remain loyal customers. Discover how brands, products, and even individual employees use experience guarantees to stand out from the competition.

Participants will gain the following:
• Discover what truly motivates customers to buy from you.
• Identify three steps to offering an experience guarantee.
• Root out service failures that cause customer churn.

Hidden Obstacles to Outstanding Customer Service
What’s the secret to providing outstanding customer service? It seems like customer service should be obvious. However, research reveals that even the best customer service professionals face hidden or even counterintuitive obstacles that make it difficult to serve customers at the highest level.

This highly engaging presentation shares several common examples that affect all of us. You will learn through a blend of fun experiential activities, real-life stories, and cutting-edge research.

Participants will gain the following:
• Experience hidden obstacles to outstanding customer service. • Examine how to identify each challenge in the workplace.
• Receive tools to help you (and your employees) overcome each one.
