An Apple a Day Keeps the DRAMA Away!
In today’s competitive global market, customers expect and want personal, friendly service and someone that listens and promptly fulfills their needs.  Give them just that, and they will provide repeat business and become a walking endorsement for your organization.  Give them anything less, and they will not only run to the nearest competitor, but openly share their dissatisfaction over social media.
So, how do you provide exceptional service that consistently results in loyal, happy customers and makes your organization shine?  Being the best requires training your employees to deliver Red Apple Service - a practical, homegrown customer service experience unlike any you may have ever attended.
In this eye-opening, half-day workshop, Glenn Furuya will show you how to develop and provide extraordinary customer service that builds loyalty and distinguishes yourself in the marketplace.
Using an apple as a metaphor, participants will:
  • Recognize the eight types of “rotten apples” that can turn customers off and hurt their organization’s reputation.


  • Identify their “apple core” - the key to serving joyfully and purposefully.


  • Discover how extraordinary customer service is like fresh baked apple pie a la mode!


  • Understand how to leave high impact points of contact with customers that will leave lasting positive impressions and build loyalty.


  • Uncover the secret of Japan’s world-renowned customer service skills.


  • Practice a simple recipe with only three ingredients that makes for superior service.


  • Determine the five slices of an apple that represent the core virtues of Red Apple Service.


  • Learn how to handle customer complaints in a positive and respectful manner.
At the close of the workshop, participants will also have an opportunity to determine three key ways they can commit to delivering Red Apple Service.
