My responsibility is to feature speakers who engage us, make us think and offer best practices so our members feel like the meeting was a good investment of their time. Mike Wittenstein does that. His laid back style makes him easy to listen to and interact with. Mike took the time to get to know us and shared how to differentiate ourselves through customer experience. His presentation is a prime example of a good customer experience.
