Customer Service ~ It can be Excellent
In a perfect world everyone would be happy and provide excellent customer service without giving it a second thought. We live in a world where "stuff" happens that we didn't anticipate, and people become stressed, and don't know what to do to get back in balance. Customer service suffers from higher expectations, reduced resources, task-saturation, multiple converging role demands, no time to "be" and the experience of a lack of time, energy or money. Dr. Chérie wrote her dissertation on the relationship between employee satisfaction and customer satisfaction. Dr. Chérie proved conclusively with her research that there is a direct link!

Just a quick note to say your speech today was excellent. You are one of the very best inspirational speakers I have ever heard. From the outset, you captured and maintained everyone’s attention. A number of friends were equally impressed. It is refreshing to see a speaker not promote their own services or products, and your call to action from the audience was very well received. Thank you again for your time and thoughts.
