Speaking

Great businesses today relentlessly seek the balance between serving their internal needs and those of their customers. There is no magic formula for Customer Delight, there is no “end game”, but a tailored and ever evolving development of processes and communications that offer that “little bit more”.

Delivering consistent Customer Delight relies on the motivation and education of internal stakeholders and the creation and implementation of reliable and repeatable systems that engage over and over again. Businesses that focus on Customer Delight become “employers of choice” and reap rewards far beyond the provision of customer service.

The Selfish Servant is a business that has the right people, processes and relationships in place to be able to serve their customer each and every time. Then, with a foundation of Delight, every business has the opportunity to expand and innovate, knowing that their teams and customers will continue to engage and help the business to thrive.

Danielle Storey is a wonderful storyteller – and a specialist in the field of generating exceptional, repeatable connections between service providers, their staff and their clients. By drawing on her knowledge, experiences and success in her own award winning company, Danielle, shares her proven business strategies.

Her presentations are inspiring, humor-filled and contain illuminating self-development tips as well as practical and easy to implement business tools. Attendees walk away from Danielle’s keynotes, meetings and workshops motivated by building-plan ideas that will make a positive difference to their company’s development.

Danielle creates bespoke keynote, meeting and workshop presentations based on talk topics including…

  •  There’s Never Been a Better Time

Everyone wants you to succeed in the “future of…” space. Entire ecosystems are being built and nurtured to ensure that you have every opportunity to build, test and pilot something that will make your world, or the world at large, an easier, more functional place to live.
Whether a sole trader, an entrepreneur-in-development (or in-hiding), a company leader or team member there are countless opportunities to innovate, develop and thrive.
So what stops us from innovating? What elements seem to delay our progress?
In this entertaining and motivating presentation Danielle Storey shares that innovation is so much more than the trendy word of 2018.  She outlines methods and pathways that you can get deeply curious about and take to develop into viable business models and products.
Audiences will learn:

  • Why there has never been a better time to be involved in an innovation ecosystem
  • Who wants them to succeed
  • About the paralysis of choice and how to keep moving
  • Why innovation is unsafe and what they can do about it
  • How they can move from ideas to action
  • A bit about people and change
  • What they can learn to dramatically increase their chances of innovation success.

“Danielle took time out of her busy schedule to talk to the Coles Architecture Group about innovation. I found Danielle to be a truly authentic speaker who shared inspiring stories of success, while bringing loads of energy and enthusiasm to the group. She drew upon her extensive experience to really connect with a progressive-thinking, technical audience. After the session, Danielle spent time one-on-one with members of the audience to network and answer questions – it was obvious that she had piqued their interest in creativity, innovation and problem solving. I’d highly recommend Danielle as both a speaker and mentor in business.” Marcus Ooi – Coles

  •  The Selfish Servant

When flying, the air safety briefing reminds us that, in the case of an emergency, we must first fit our own oxygen mask before helping others. Great businesses make sure that they too have the right things in place so that their front line staff can deliver their product or service to their customers, consistently.  Today’s global connectivity requires that leaders continually look for and find the moving balance between serving the business, the customer, their teams and other stakeholders to successfully compete in price driven and competitive markets. Customers are looking to be engaged and teams are needing to be more flexible to ensure satisfaction.

Customer Delight is customer service with that little bit more. Delivered consistently Customer Delight reaps profitable rewards for organisations creating reliability and a safe experience for customers who reward with loyalty and repeat business.

Delegates are left with a clear understanding of how to engage leaders and teams in the processes that delivers Delight to customers, ensuring the profitable success of organisations and brands.

  • The Future of Customer Service

The landscape of service has changed dramatically in the past 20 years and changed almost unrecognisably over the past 100 years. In the 1920s, when everyone was serving someone all of the time, department store chains were declaring that The Customer is Always Right. Fast forward to today and many talk about the generations of youth who prefer to serve themselves. Some even call them selfish. The value these current generations offer is the experience and understanding that service sits on a moving linear spectrum, shifting backwards and forwards between the end points of making sure that the customer is served and the organisation is served as well, creating profitable outcomes for all involved.

The foundation and development of relationships, both offline and online is the future of customer service. Congruent relationships between leaders, front line teams and customers are formed and maintained through the gaining of clarity and the consistent application of systems to create consistency and safety. Safe teams and customers deliver loyalty and longevity, rewarding brands by becoming online and offline advocates. As well, advocates allow businesses and brands to take risks with growth and change.

Delegates will learn the responsibility of leaders for the creation congruent relationships and how to gain buy-in from front line teams and from customers. They will walk away with an understanding of the difference between customer service and customer delight, the value in creating congruent relationships and the power of consistency enabling them to be leaders in the future world of global customer service.

Danielle Storey is a leading expert in customer service and how to create and implement the structures that ensure the profitable success of organisations and brands through the building of advocates both in front line teams and customers and clients.

Clients and Customers are crying out for personal attention, to be delighted and engaged. Global connectivity and fast moving social technology mean that customers can share their experiences instantly and influence the buying decisions not only of their tribe, but the wider community as well. There are simple, repeatable systems that enable brands to take risks with growth and change and still create an army of advocates that forgive, re-engage and refer.

Danielle Storey gave a great presentation; very personal and yet highly commercial and for me a great reminder of some of the things I should be doing in my networking endeavours as well as post networking ( follow up contact, personally or by email/letter of thanks etc). This is especially relevant when dealing with overseas clients. The presentation was enlightening and would recommend to anyone seeking to improve their business and personal relationship skills.
