Overpromise and Overdeliver offers powerful and easy-to-apply lessons not only for senior managers but also for individuals at any level — for anyone who wants to create extraordinary customer experiences.

MOST REQUESTED TOPICS:

Branding/Customer Loyalty— Overpromise and Overdeliver This topic is essential for any company that wants to stand out from competitors while leading their industry in growth and profit. Overpromise and Overdeliver shows you how to differentiate your brand and your customer service by designing and managing the appropriate Product, System and Human TouchPoint interactions in the appropriate blend for your customers. Senior executives will find the research and examples compelling. Line managers will learn what has been missing in their execution and the front line will learn what they must do on a daily basis to ensure that customers drive the buzz that builds breakaway brands.

Innovation — Fast Forward This intense presentation underscores the necessity for companies to redesign their systems and processes to permit flexibility, innovation and speed. Your team will learn practical, action-oriented steps to capitalize on key trends driving the future of management, marketing, sales and customer service delivery. Participants in Fast Forward will discover their own “innovation quotient” and learn how to improve it so they can accelerate the pace of their innovation.

Customer Service — Rethinking Customer Service As we hurtle along technological pathways in our quest to do more and do it faster, we run the risk of becoming “faceless” to our customers. While we revel our digitalization, we must redesign our organizations to ensure that customers continue to have access to gratifying human interaction. Yet, most companies are not structured to deliver quality customer service. Superior service delivery is a systems issue, not a front line personnel issue. Punctuating his program with examples that epitomize service excellence, Rick delineates what companies must do to win and keep customers in a hyper competitive marketplace.
