Welcome to the very first episode of the Creating Superfans podcast! What better way to kick-off than with the world’s top Customer Experience expert, Shep Hyken!
Shep is a New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author, and his latest book is called ’ll Be Back. He’s a hall-of-fame speaker and a HUGE mentor of mine, which is why I was thrilled when he agreed to write the foreword of my book, Creating Superfans.
On this episode, we discuss a few critical CX lessons Shep learned as a twelve-year-old, the world’s oldest customer complaint letter, and Shep’s non-negotiables when it comes to excellent customer service.
