Leading a Customer-Focused Team

Making Service your key differentiator – in just 90 minutes a Month

with Jeff Mowatt

Imagine leading a team whose service is so outstanding it becomes your brand. Customers hear about you, are drawn to you, and refuse to leave you because your team is the industry Service Icon. You are one of the few leaders who no longer has to deal with the hassles of staff turnover and customer complaints. Best of all, you’ll learn how to accomplish all of this in just 90 minutes a month.

You’ll discover how to:

  • Adapt and capitalize on the three largest trends that are disrupting customer experience
  • Take you organization’s customer service culture to the next level
  • Boost productivity and morale by tapping into the #1 employee motivator (hint: it isn’t money or recognition)
  • Align your training, recognition, and customer feedback efforts into a single continuous improvement system

Unlike other approaches that merely focus on surface behaviours, this addresses the root cause.  As Jeff puts it, “If you try to enhance customer service behaviours without looking at the culture, you’re painting over rust – the underlying problems will resurface.”

“Jeff’s presentation was the best I’ve seen since I’ve been with the company. It was relevant to the challenges that branch managers have in moving the vision forward.”

Super-Session Panel

Creating Customer Loyalty with Grudge Purchases

If you work at beach resort – where customers are relaxed and enjoy spending their money – it’s easy to have happy customers. It’s harder when customers think of doing business with you as a chore, or as merely a means to an end. In this super-session panel, 3 business leaders will share their secrets for creating customer loyalty – even with grudge purchases.

You’ll discover how to:

  • Choose between positioning your products and services as fixing problems vs offering benefits
  • Overcome focusing on price with grudge purchases
  • Educate today’s well informed customers without coming across as patronizing
  • Ensure staff stay engaged even when dealing with customers who are rushed or frustrated

If you ever face customers who are reluctant to deal with the hassle of doing business with you, who express resistance to prices, you won’t want to miss out on this session.

Four reasons you & your leadership team should attend:

1Make price less relevant.

You already know that in today’s commoditized marketplace, your #1 competitive advantage is your team’s service. And it’s one of the few things you have total control over. This summit is for leadership teams who:

  • Want to create more memorable and meaningful relationships with their customers.
  • Don’t want to settle for merely “good enough.”
  • Want their company’s service to be valued – literally, over that of their competitors.

2Help Uber-proof your business.

Unless you are a government monopoly, chances are your business model may soon be – if it hasn’t already been – disrupted by some version of your industry’s Uber. That means to keep and grow your market share, your customers can’t be merely satisfied. They need to be fiercely loyal. Take advantage of this opportunity to step back from your daily activities and generate ideas to ensure your customers feel an emotional bond to your brand. And only to your brand.

3Create buy-in and take action.

You may have found that trying to introduce new ideas to an established business can be challenging. That’s why we encourage bringing your leadership team, and why we offer savings when you register groups of 6 people or more. Your decision makers get the same message at the same time, you can share ideas over lunch and during breaks, and you can move into action the very next day.

4Have some fun!

Ever been to a conference where you’re crammed shoulder to shoulder, forced to sit through somebody reading PowerPoint punishment in a monotone that has you wishing you were anywhere but there? Us too. That’s why all of the keynoters are professional speakers who know how to engage and entertain a business audience while sharing relevant ideas. The day will fly by; ending with you and your leadership team being re-focused and recharged.
