The Magic of the “Pixie Dust” – Customer Service, A Way of Life for Disney

How do you translate Disney’s incredible 60 year success into simple strategies and tactics that any organization can apply?  This program takes a look at how Disney engages the hearts and minds of its employees to want to deliver “the extra”, even with no one watching.  It explores how they consistently deliver a seamless experience through a common set of defined behaviors that become a way of life in both internal and external service situations.  Through personal stories and anecdotes, audience participants learn how Disney separates itself from its competition.  If you want to catapult your organization from offering ordinary customer experiences to extraordinary experiences, like Disney does, the lessons learned can be easily translated to your industry.

Keynote by speaker Teri Yanovitch

Creating a Culture of Service Excellence

The delivery of excellent service should be viewed as a way of life within an organization.  World-class customer service doesn’t just happen, it must be planned and managed if it is to be delivered consistently. This means ingraining it into the fabric of the organization so that it becomes known that service excellence is “how we do business”.  To do this, a service philosophy and service standards need to be established so all employees know the expectations of how to deliver great service.  The customer experience must be orchestrated to ensure all opportunities to create exceptional and memorable moments will happen consistently.  This program will identify the leadership actions needed to create and sustain a culture of service excellence. 

Participants will:

  • learn how to develop a Service Philosophy and Service Standards
  • identify the critical elements that affect the customer experience
  • learn the systems and processes that structure a culture of service excellence
  • identify touch point opportunities to Wow the customer
  • learn how to create Service Heroes of your employees

To say that you were a “hit” at our Senior Management Conference this last week on St. Simons Island would be an understatement. I’ve received numerous compliments regarding your presentation and the quality of the content. As a plus, those who had the opportunity to visit with you liked you personally as well. Thanks again for a terrific experience.

Thank you for your participation in GMAC’s annual conference. Your lively session was informative and well- received. It was clear that attendees appreciated the topic and your interactive mode of delivery. We value you sharing your expertise with the group and making it relevant for them. As I told you right after the session, it’s tough for one person to hold the attention of 500 people for 90 minutes. And that you did masterfully!

Graduate Management Admission Council

Thank you for speaking at the ABC Leadership Forum in Vancouver. Your presentation, based on the evaluations for the session, was very well received by the Forum participants. You exceeded all our expectations.

America’s Blood Centers

It was so great to watch your enthusiastic commitment and to doing the very best possible job of putting it across to a room of people you’d never seen before and would probably never see again. I always felt I was getting full measure and that you liked us and what you were doing.
