The 7 Deadly Sins of Service: There is no excuse for bad service. Since it costs five times more to replace a customer than it does to keep one, poor service can cost a bundle! But is poor service the result of staff not knowing what to do or not seeing what’s needed? Hardly. It’s the result of poor habits, indifference and apathy, which destroy the goodwill and attention residents and their families expect. This presentation identifies the sins that get in the way of great service and shows you how to get back on track.

This presentation has been designed specifically for people who are responsible for the organization’s outcomes or performance environment. It provides clear instruction as to how to create a setting in which people thrive and where compassion, concern and empathy abound.

"I'm not sure why we bothered with the rest of the conference when all people talked about for the next two days was Petra Marquart. You grabbed them by the lapels at the start of your talk and riveted them to their seats until the end. The best comment was, 'I want to be that woman's agent.' Thanks for a job very well done."
