SIMON T. BAILEY
Simon T. Bailey - speaker at the 2018 National Mompreneurs Conference

5 Ways to Create Customers for Life…
And Shift Your Brilliance in the Process

Customer love is a mindset. If you’re unforgettable, you’ll create a customer for life, and in the process, you’ll have the opportunity to become a business leader who is ready to take their company into tomorrow.

Simon leverages what he’s learned over 30 years of working for six different companies, including the Disney Institute and The Ritz Carlton Learning Institute, to create memories that matter. Attendees will learn that superior customer service is a connection, not a product. You will be empowered to see customers as guests, create a personalized experience, anticipate needs, respond immediately, and capture loyalty through kindness. You’ll be a spark in that guest’s memory, transforming from good service into platinum service, and every customer will be one for life.

By successfully demonstrating leadership of laser-focused customer service, you will be ready to “Shift Your Brilliance”, Simon’s signature program created to solve a problem: help individuals get out of the past and think like a leader of the future. You’ll develop an enhanced sense of perspective, understand where you shine, and learn how to lead without a title to create effective change. The best leaders are the ones who lead differently. You are the director of your personal narrative. You have the power to reposition your team, your company, and your life by leading in a style that’s uniquely you. By the end of this presentation, attendees will uncover their inner strengths to reach new heights.

BONUS: Enjoy an exclusive meet and greet with Simon, where you can get a signed copy of his bestselling books Release Your Brilliance and Shift Your Brilliance!
