Is your customer experience forgettable and easy to replicate?

Customer experience leaders Stacy Sherman, host of the award-winning Doing CX Right podcast, and featured guest Mark Sanborn, renowned leadership speaker, and author of the famous “Fred Factor”, reveal how to create differentiated and memorable customer experiences to gain a competitive advantage. 

Learn the importance of focusing on how an experience makes the customer feel, and key principles like “everyone makes a difference” that enable extraordinary service–from his well known book, “The Fred Factor.”

About “The Fred Factor”

In his powerful new book, Mark recounts the true story of Fred, the mail carrier who passionately loves his job and who genuinely cares about the people he serves. Because of that, he is constantly going the extra mile handling the mail – and sometimes watching over the houses – of the people on his route, treating everyone he meets as a friend. Where others might see delivering mail as monotonous drudgery, Fred sees an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of those he serves. More details on Amazon.
