The Convenience Revolution

How easy are you to do business with?

Whether you know it or not, your customers compare you to the easiest companies to do business with, such as Amazon, Apple, and others. They set the benchmark when it comes to an easy and friction-free experience.

A convenient customer experience could be what differentiates you from your competition. When all else is equal (your products and service), the company that offers an easier—as in more convenient—experience will win.

Shep reveals the six Convenience Principles that will give you a competitive edge. It’s time to join the revolution—the Convenience Revolution!

Creating An Amazing Customer Experience in Scary Times

We’ve experienced (or are currently experiencing) scary times, such as a rocky economy, employment issues, supply chain issues, and even a worldwide pandemic.

Amid tough times and/or a crisis, we must stay focused on taking care of our customers and employees.

Shep shares ideas and tactics to help maintain and improve customer service and CX during tough times and beyond.

Be Amazing or Go Home

Business is about relationships… relationships with both customers and colleagues.

People want to do business and work with companies and people who are amazing… people who consistently meet and even exceed expectations.

It’s not as hard as you might think. Many people see the word amazement as a WOW experience that goes over the top.

On the contrary, being amazing is within everyone’s grasp.

In this fast-paced, entertaining and informative presentation, Shep shares specific tactics and tools to help the audience, as individuals, build stronger relationships that create confidence and deliver an amazing experience to their customers and colleagues.

Being amazing is about being consistent and predictable. It’s a mindset and a choice. And the choice is simple… Be Amazing or Go Home!
