Emotional Branding: The Ultimate Customer Experience Workshop with Scott Deming

Thursday, Nov 10, 2016 from 8 am to 12:30 pm – Marriott Syracuse Downtown, (formerly Hotel Syracuse)

What do your customers really think of you and your service? How effective are your verbal and written communication skills? Do your customers GET YOU? Are you getting in front of them, even when you can’t be there?

This workshop will help you to have a greater understanding of your customer’s expectations, their perception of you, and ultimately how to move a customer from satisfied to loyal.  Using  case studies, role playing and exercises, you will learn how to focus on the needs, desires and expectations of your customers, as you create unique selling propositions, marketing campaigns and purpose in your proposition. Event includes breakfast and networking.
