Speaker Topics

Capturing the Power of a Superior Service Culture: Creating a sustainable competitive advantage
In a world where customers and staff have increasing options, companies with a powerful service reputation and an Uplifting Service culture are attracting and retaining the best talent, achieving market leadership and enjoying sustainable success. In fact, building a service focused culture today is no longer an option, it is a competitive necessity. This session provides senior executives with the opportunity to step back and answer the question, Is the service culture that exists in my company today providing me with a strong competitive advantage for tomorrow? If so, what can I do to keep it growing stronger? And if not, what can I do to make it better right now? Packed with case studies and best practice examples from companies around the world, Capturing the Power of a Superior Service Culture shows you why some organizations succeed beautifully and others fail miserably. Participate in this presentation to find out what works, what does not, what your organization should do, and what you must avoid.
Leading the Service Focused Culture: Creating superior service from the c-suite
A superior service culture does not happen by accident but instead requires committed managers willing to walk their talk, and motivated staff inspired to deliver on the spot service daily. But beyond this, the driving force of a service focused culture is a group of inspired leaders who are convinced of, and committed to, the long term value of Uplifting Service. Leading The Service Focused Culture facilitates your senior leadership team in building the alignment needed to embrace a common service vision, and then take the actions required to make that vision a reality. In this hands on session, participants review the culture building activities currently in use in the organization; identify opportunities for new service initiatives; learn best practices for becoming a service focused culture and commit to taking action to align and strengthen the service focus.
Uplifting Service: Exceeding customer expectations one action at a time
In todays global economy, customer expectations in almost every industry are rising. What was once considered a perk, bonus or plus is now a promise clients expect and even demand, time and again. And while everyone may agree that providing superior service is essential to continued success in a competitive world, too many executives still regard service as the fuzzy stuff they do not know how to measure, manage or make happen on a companywide scale. Uplifting Service is an entertaining and interactive presentation that shows everyone from the C suite to the front lines specific actions and concrete steps to fly over customers rising expectations and immediately improve the quality of service delivered at all levels of the company. Packed with real life examples, powerful principles and tried and true techniques, this session will educate, motivate and inspire everyone on your team to take new action now.
