To be brilliant at delivering the best Customer Experience you need to be obsessed by it – totally obsessed. You, and your team, need to live, eat and breathe delivering amazing customer experiences – everywhere, by everyone, every time.

The ultimate driver of how well your business will do isn’t you – shock, horror; it’s how what you and your team do makes your customers feel.

The focal point for all your customer experience delivery has to be: “Customers may forget what you do and what you say, but they’ll never forget how you make them feel”.

Make a customer happy and they’ll tell one, maybe two people. Upset a customer and they’ll tell 10 people
and, if they’re on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, they’ll tell a lot more. A recent survey revealed 40% of people
now take to social media to complain about bad customer experiences.
