Some of his clients include American Airlines, AAA, Anheuser-Busch, AT&T, AETNA, Abbott Laboratories, American Express - and that’s just a few of the A’s!

He is known for his high-energy presentations, which combine important information with entertainment (humor and magic) to create exciting programs for his audiences.

  • Creating "Moments of Magic," Customer Loyalty, Excellent
    Customer Service Customer Relations and The Cult of the
    These presentations focus on how important service is in today's world.
    Make your organization a star in your customers' eyes. Some of the topics
    in these presentations include Jan Carlzon's Moments of Truth, Moments
    of Magic, parallels between selling and service, meeting and exceeding
    expectations, handling confrontations, building relationships and more.

  • Internal Customer Service
    This is important to every employee of any business; from upper
    management to front line employees. Some of the areas discussed include
    the concept of the internal customer, management's new responsibilities
    and building better relationships. The front line may service, sell and have
    the most contact with the "outside" customer, but the internal people serve
    everyone else in the organization. Servicing and treating fellow employees
    like customers will have a direct positive effect on your organization's
    customer service/satisfaction program. Teamwork concepts can also be
    brought into this program.

  • You Are the Magic!
    This motivational speech combines humor, magic, information and
    motivation to create an exciting and enlightening presentation for all types
    of audiences. It is a fun program that can incorporate parts of Shep's
    service programs or can include topics such as personal excellence, goal
    setting, turning negatives into positives, teamwork and more. This is an
    outstanding program for banquets and special events.

  • Focus On the Customer - LIVE!
    Perhaps your organization has held focus groups where customers are
    brought into a comfortable environment and asked questions. Imagine
    taking the focus group live, in front of your organization's executives, sales
    people, etc. Shep Hyken will host and facilitate a focus group in front of
    your audience. Shep will learn specific information about your business
    and industry, learn about your customers, and develop questions to ask
    them. But most importantly, Shep will open the session up for questions
    from the audience. Your people will be able to ask these customers
    virtually any questions they have ever wanted to ask - no holds barred!
    Shep encourages participation and keeps the program moving with high
    energy and his own brand of humor. (You might say this is a cross
    between Phil Donahue and Jay Leno!)
