GOOD SERVICE IS KILLING YOUR BUSINESS

If you think good service is why people return to your business, it's a safe bet that you won't stay in business.

Wait, what??? WHY?

Service is an unwritten contract between you and your customers that you sign every time you open your doors or drive traffic to your website. If “good service” is all you have to offer, you're not offering much.

Today, people want -- and with their dollars, demand -- a memorable experience that they'll willingly share.

Service is what you do FOR your guests; hospitality is what you do WITH them.

Service is a skill, and hospitality is a spirit.

In this engaging, eye-opening session, 18-year hospitality industry veteran Anna Dolce explains why “good service” is reserved only for dying businesses.

  • Spirit Over Skill: The Difference Between Hospitality And Mere Service

  • Results At Any Cost Is Costing Your Business: How to stop thinking short term and build a lasting business

WORK WOULD BE EASY IF IT WASN’T FOR OTHER PEOPLE

There are no good people out there,” “My people suck,” and “Nobody wants to work anymore” are the biggest excuses that stand in the way of you and the business you want.

  • There Are No Good People Out There, FOR YOU: The three reasons why you can’t find the right people

  • Millennials And Gen Z Are Not Your Foes: New ways of engagement and bridging generational divides
