To our delight, Errol designed his presentation to be specific to our hotel which made his material extremely interesting, impactful and even more practical. We felt strongly enough about Errol’s presentation and subsequent positive response from everyone, that we have already scheduled him for a return engagement. Thank you Errol!”

“Errol Allen was extremely effective during his consultative engagement in the Summer of 2013. His passion for customer service and processes was prevalent throughout his time with our business. His primary role was to identify processes that could be improved for our service business. We quickly determined from our breakout sessions that going digital was the answer. We were able to implement technology that did away with paper invoicing and digitized the whole process saving numerous hours and inefficiencies.
In addition, Errol helped document a new hire training guide that was fundamental to our business for the on boarding of new staff at the basic level. Lastly, Errol’s personal dedication to the success of the project was greatly appreciated. He was always available to discuss ideas, events, problems that were ongoing while he was with us even though they were beyond his scope. We at Sears Garage Solutions wish him the best in his endeavors and know that he will be very successful with his approach on people and processes.”

I heartily recommend Errol to anyone who values customer service.”

He shared his knowledge and gave me key insights to think about in the process. His follow through has been impeccable – and he has even gone the road to ensure that all processes are working well. He is a true professional with much knowledge and experience to share”

“Since Errol is an expert in customer service and customer relationship management I asked him to speak to my Marketing Management class at the University of St. Thomas. He did a wonderful job engaging my students in the discussion. Errol gave an excellent lecture on the role that customer relations plays in overall marketing strategy. He helped the students make a solid connection between the material in their textbook and the everyday realities and challenges that businesses face in growing and retaining their customer base. His examples were relevant and purposeful and the students really appreciated his insight. Errol provided extremely valuable knowledge and I would not hesitate to have him return to speak again.”
