  • A-B-C’s of Customer Service Basics
  • Brand-building

This session is designed for both front-line and management.

Location:  Treasures of Marilyn's, 3510 5th Ave, Lake Charles, LA 70607
An average, mediocre, ho-hum experience will no longer recruit or retain customers.  This workshop is a wake-up call- a reality check to never accept mediocrity and average performance – to stop simply knowing what we should do and start doing exceptional things to create workplace and customer excitement.  It’s time to light a fire and ignite a contagious spirit within your team to elevate the customer experience.  You’ll discover how “Doing things Differently Leads to Something Exceptional.”

Four dimensions will be explored to paint a complete picture of what to Exceptionalize and how to Exceptionalize It!

  • Customer
  • You
  • Manager
  • Success

This session is designed for both front-line and management.
