J Ozier, WOW! Windows
“As a member of the audience at your delightful talk last night, I just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed your presentation. I found your messages innovative and thought-provoking, your deadpan delivery a riot, and your quirky sense of humour totally disarming. Thank you for making the conference something really special.”
“I first read POS when I became a manager. I read that book 3 times in a month and it molded who I am today in Customer Service. I have wanted you to know now for about 10 years how much I owe you in changing my outlook on customer service and thank you for the thank yous I have received from customers. I wish I had the money myself to open my own business and spread your teachings but until then, I continue to do what I can with everyone I meet.”
Scott MacDonald, PhD, Southwest Graduate School of Banking
“…your humor is barbed with important business lessons. Only after the ribbons of laughter subside does one realize that an astute marketing lesson or business strategy has become securely fastened to one’s gray matter. It’s a unique approach that Mark Twain originated and you have perfected…”
Martin Ferrill, Chief Operating Officer, Soft Pretzel Franchise Systems, Inc.
