  • Edward O'Connell

    Micah Solomon’s message is one that is especially timely for law firms, as they seek to maintain the loyalty of their “customers” (i.e., the clients) and provide value in an increasingly competitive legal services environment. In Micah’s live presentation his common sense teachings of the basic lessons of customer service are presented with deftly humorous illustrations that are useful in raising the consciousness of lawyers and support staff to the perspective of what our interactions with clients are like from a customer perspective. For a law firm or any professional services firm, Micah’s advice puts an appropriate and sharp focus on the service aspect that is so central to our profession and business.

  • Jann Headshot

    Micah Solomon gave a powerful, entertaining, and most importantly educational presentation at our international headquarters. He shared his insights on exceptional customer service–a topic that is critical for non-profit and for-profit organizations alike. Micah’s presentation provided clear strategies for the team so we can utilize the fundamentals to build a five-star customer service organization here at Operation Smile. In the current economy, creating and retaining loyal donors is critical to the long-term delivery of services to children with cleft lips and cleft palates around the world. Many thanks to Micah for his presentation — the concepts he shared with Operation Smile will help us differentiate ourselves and win our donors’ loyalty.

    I was really impressed with the level of detail (and the memorable examples, positive and negative) you presented during your talk. Learning from the wisdom of–and occasional missteps–of companies like The Ritz-Carlton, Starbucks, Netflix, and more is extremely enlightening. I was also heartened that your approach is truly hands-on: you are one of the few speakers/consultants who has really practiced what he preaches; the examples from your own entrepreneurial experiences were a wonderful part of the presentation. The takeaways for my team were supremely practical–and we’re already making use of them, for example, learning to better focus on the beginning and end of your customer interactions since they stick in memory disproportionately. I have already recommended you to other business owners and executives, and will continue to do so to any sized company or industry that is seeking ways to grow their business through the power of customer service.

His message resonates to an extent I’ve rarely seen. I highly recommend him.
