A couple sample topics are listed below.
Customer Service is Great Foreplay
Great customer service is a passion for Ryan. He views it as one of the most important things a business can do.
He understands that the purchase happens long before the customer walks in the store or pulls up a website. During this talk Ryan will share how a business can win with a little customer service foreplay and positively impact revenue.
Awesome customer service, pre-purchase, sets the stage for a great buying experience, which then paves the way for creating strong customer brand advocates post purchase.
Don’t Forget How to Be Scrappy
Social Media War Room. Social Media Suites. The fancy phrases go on and on. But the fact is, many big businesses, and those that work at said businesses, have either forgotten what it’s like, or have simply never had to be scrappy.
But when you have to be scrappy, you use what’s at your disposal and you use creativity to make things happen. This motivational talk will inspire the audience to no longer look at budget obstacles as stop signs, but instead look at them as speed bumps. They will also learn how creativity can open unforeseen doors.
