Join us May 6th, from 9AM – 12PM EST, for a Customer Service Workshop led by the one and only, Louie Gravance!
Louie is a former service guru and training designer for Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. After almost two decades with Disney he was drafted by the Bank of America and ING Financial to help rethink service in the investment industry.
Louie will be leading this exciting and interactive workshop, The TEN Skills of the Service Superhero, to explore the delivery of “magical” service moments on a consistent basis through the use of the 10 basic skills. Serving with intention and servicing with vision are just two of the skills covered in this deep dive into the practical application of Disney service principles.
