A Call to Arms Men's Conference - Arthur Greeno

Speaker Highlights - Arthur Greeno

Remarkable Living 

Are you just living, or are you living remarkably? When you live in a way that people remark about it, you tend to run with more passion, more energy, and more joy. Its not as hard as you think.  Arthur will not only give you tips on it, but show you real life examples of how he lives remarkably on a day to day basis. No matter which part of your life you are looking at, wheather its about living remarkably with your spouse, your kids, your job, or just how you live life. The internet says that 1 out of every 3 people is remarkable, so look at those you surround yourself with… if it's not them, then why can’t it be you?

Creating a Remarkable Company Culture 

What is the culture of your company? It does not take much to see how Chick-fil-A has done a great job with culture. However, even with a giant company behind you, creating a environment where people are REMARKing about it is not easy.

Remarkable Marketing 

Some people in the Chick-fil-A corporate office have said, “There is either a rule made because of Arthur Greeno, or about to be a rule made because of Arthur Greeno.”  When it comes to marketing, some people seem to be wired for it, and Arthur is one of those people. He has set two Guinness World Records and an article was written in the New York Times about him poking fun at Mc Donald’s. He has also been mentioned in the media more than 100 other times for doing things that people want to know about. Doing marketing that people REMARK about is a key. Your guests are already remarking about you, why not make it amazing?

Remarkable Customer Service 

By far the most common question I get asked is, “How do you train your people?”  It is often assumed that we must have an incredible training program. We do have a strong program, but that’s not actually the secret. The true secret is hiring the right people who have a heart to serve is what makes it so extraordinary. We want to treat each guest like a true guest, not a number or a dollar sign. We know that every person has a story and we want to find out how we can be a part of it. It isn’t easy and it doesn’t come to many naturally.  Do you want to provide customer service people REMARK about? It will take work, but Arthur will share keys that you can apply and be on the road to providing truly remarkable customer service.

Remarkable Leadership 

Leading people at high levels is never easy. Sure, some companies make it look easy, but more often than not it can be long and difficult journey.  Arthur has a proven record of leading others to their potential. He will share with you in a very real way what he has done to develop his team to perform at a high level, taking his store from almost last in the chain to being the only multi-restaurant Chick-fil-A owner in Oklahoma.

Pastor

Arthur Greeno spoke at our church banquet and was an immediate hit. Of course, Arthur was early to meet people as they entered the room. He also stayed to visit with anyone that had any questions and to sign autographs. When his time came to speak his promotional items and give-aways quickly captured everyone’s attention. Arthur has an amazing personal story that will relate to everyone in any audience. A young teenage boy in an unstable and dysfunctional family, a Youth Minister who encouraged him and a loving God who directed his steps. Of course, Chick-fil-A has helped make Arthur a success, mentor, hero and an inspiring example. Our people went from crying to laughing with some of the same stories. Arthur Greeno is not only a powerful and personal speaker – he is also the real deal! Pastor

President, Educational Systems Products, Inc

I highly recommend Arthur Greeno as guest speaker for a business conference. Arthur was the Keynote speaker at my company’s annual conference in Tulsa in April 2013. This was a 33rd annual conference and Arthur’s speech was one of the best. In the weeks leading up to the conference, Arthur and I exchanged emails and spoke on the phone a couple of times. Although he had no real knowledge of my business, which is software for Higher Education, he and I both share a passion for customer service. Arthur has excellent communication skills. In addition, he was on-time, professional, aware of who is audience was and made an effort to relate to his audience. His speech included a short video presentation that was very effective. Arthur has a gift for humor. But the thing about Arthur’s humor is that it is not at the expense of others but is self-deprecating. It’s always better to make fun of yourself and not others. Arthur has my highest recommendation as a keynote speaker for any business or organization’s next conference. President, Educational Systems Products, Inc

New Life Ranch, Harriet, AR

I’d highly recommend Arthur to speak at any event that you’re wanting an exciting, funny, encouraging, and inspiring message to be heard. You won’t be disappointed! New Life Ranch, Harriet, AR

President, The Young Businessmen of Tulsa

Arthur did a fantastic job at the Young Businessmen of Tulsa luncheon. We had our biggest crowd to date! Our guests were extremely excited to hear Arthur! Thank you for making our January luncheon our best one yet! President, The Young Businessmen of Tulsa

Iguana Wash, New Orleans, LA

Arthur was truly a delight to have as our speaker. We are a tough crowd with a room full of no-nonsense small business owners and Arthur navigated perfectly. We struggle with hiring and training good people in the current job market and Arthur really gave us a shot in the arm with actual tangible tools to use in our search for the perfect crew. You can tell he has been the trenches for many years working to achieve the success he is enjoying. Great job Arthur. Iguana Wash, New Orleans, LA
