Hospitality Professor

Description:
Mistakes are expensive.  Refunds and comps are just the beginning. Lost customers and the erosion of your reputation are much worse. The best customer service organizations shoot for 100% guest satisfaction and 0% defaults.

In this session, Professor Brian Warrener will examine customer service delivery and the fine art of service recovery, drawing upon the latest scholarship and theory, and examples from organizations that do it best.
