Here are some of the things we discussed on the show:

  • Customer Experience Defined: Everything that you do for your customers + everything your business processes do to your customer = how it makes your customer feel

  • Not all customers are created equal
  • You can never exactly meet expectations. You either fall short or you exceed expectations.
  • How can you go above and beyond the transaction?
  • G.L.U.E. concept – Giving Little Unexpected Extras
