Smart business people know that your options to stand out in the marketplace are limited... cut prices? Not very profitable. Improve product quality? Certainly, but that can take substantial time and money. The fastest, most cost-effective way to differentiate yourself is to focus on your service. Customer service can no longer be merely average or simply friendly; it needs to be remark-able. That means you and your team members need to be seen as Trusted Advisors. Here's your opportunity to make that happen for your team...
Jeff Mowatt's half day seminar, "The Art of Customer Service... Influence with Ease"
Some people claim that taking customer service to the next level is complex. Jeff Mowatt disagrees. That's why he calls his approach, Influence with Ease. Jeff reveals easy-to-apply tips, tools and phrases that generate significant results including:
- Strengthen customer loyalty
- Reduce conflicts with customers and co-workers
- Recharge customer service teamwork
Whether you work as a frontline employee or manager in either the private or public sectors, these strategies will change the way people view you and your organization.
Participants learn how to:
- Enhance people's perception of you by 12% by using a two word phrase more often (hint: it's not please or thank you)
- Prevent customers from defecting just to save a few dollars
- Reduce your customers' buying choices, and increase purchases by 7 fold
- Position your ideas, products, and services so that people select higher value options
- Meet and exceed the 7 top customer expectations
- Connect with clients at a deeper level by expressing your 'grand intention'
- Use the most prevalent shift in buying behaviors to boost your business
- Avoid 5 common expressions that unwittingly raise skepticism in others
- Tap the 'humility advantage' to influence without pushiness
- Deal effectively with customers and co-workers who are stressed or rushed
- Convert an upset person into an advocate of your services
- Ensure that social media messages about you and your organization strengthen rather than damage your brand
- Break bad news to others without creating hard feelings
- Move beyond repeat business to create loyalty (there is a difference)
- Prevent miscommunications that lead to stress and work overload
- Boost communication skills both at work and in your personal life
- Recharge your spirit and brighten your interactions with others
Jeff believes that smart customers no longer value you as an information provider. For information, customers can search Google in less than a second and it's free. Free is worthless. Fortunately however, there are 3 core elements that customers do want from you - better yet to receive them, they are willing to pay a premium. You'll discover how to apply these 3 elements so you're perceived less as an information provider or order-taker, and more as a Trusted Advisor.
Whether you and your team members deal with external customers or internal coworkers you'll learn valuable skills that generate immediate results.
A unique learning opportunity with Jeff Mowatt
Treat yourself to this entertaining, informative session with award winning speaker, Jeff Mowatt B.Comm, Certified Professional Speaker. Jeff knows his stuff. He didn't just read the book - he wrote it! He's the best-selling author of the books, Becoming a Service Icon in 90 Minutes a Month, and Influence with Ease. He heads his own training company and has written and produced four self-study training systems. His Influence with Ease column has been syndicated and featured in over 200 business publications. Jeff has exercised influence himself as a 22-year customer service strategist, former national president of the Canadian Association of Professional Speakers, and business owner.
6 reasons why managers and their teams should attend this program...
- You'll stay current. You have no doubt noticed that technology is changing the face of customer service. Traditional ways we used to interact with customers, win their trust, and keep them coming back are becoming irrelevant. You'll discover 3 of the most significant trends in customer service, and how you can position your organization to capitalize in response. Ignore these trends and you may find your business model is becoming obsolete.
- You'll learn something. If you've ever attended a conference where Jeff was the speaker, you know that he goes beyond theory and wishful thinking. Instead, he shares unique Influence with Ease tips that work in the real world. No matter what level you're at in your organization, you will learn concepts that earn and hold your customers' trust - even when they are rushed or stressed.
- The half day format enables your whole team to attend. Jeff does the same program in the morning and the afternoon so that half of your team can attend either session. That means you get consistent training for everyone in a single day without having to shut down operations or forcing some people to miss-out.
- It's economical. We worked hard to come-up with a registration fee that would make it easy for organizations of any size to afford. The registration fee for this program is as low as $147 for early-bird registrations. We want to see all your people here. So we offer 10% off when you register 10 or more people. In terms of return on your investment, consider the payoff of each team member gaining and keeping just one repeat customer as a result of this training. How much does it cost your organization when an employee inadvertently loses a single repeat customer? When employees are forced to contend with customers and co-workers who are frustrated, what's the toll on staff morale? What's the cost of finding replacements? Take advantage of this opportunity to re-engage your entire team. Show them that you believe in them and expect them to continuously improve their service. If you're a manager, demonstrate that you're committed to this by attending yourself and bringing your management team. Keep in mind though that space is limited. Avoid disappointment and get the best rates by registering today.
- You'll have fun! People pay more attention, learn faster, and retain more when they're enjoying themselves. Influence with Ease is a fascinating topic presented by a master certified professional speaker that can enrich your communications with just about any other human. With Jeff you'll laugh and learn. That means boosting your business and morale.
- It's an opportunity to grow your business. The short-sighted approach to deal with price-cutting competitors is just to respond in kind; cut prices, operate on a shoe-string, hope for better times. The problem is customers will always be able to find someone else willing to provide similar products or services cheaper. Savvy managers realize your best option to prosper is to become a category-of-one, by simply enhancing the skills of the people you already have. You have two choices when faced with competitive pressures... you can either take refuge or take action.
