They prove they are best of breed. They do the right things right and they don’t get the wrong things wrong.

They are inspired by their cause and they are disciplined to defend it. Champions are gifted but they are also worthy of their gifts. They know what to do and they do what they know. They plan their execution and they execute their plan. They dream but they don’t daydream. Champions talk the talk and they walk the walk. Their words inspire action. Every hour, every day, every week, every month, every year, champions do what needs to be done. No alibis allowed, no excuses permitted, no easy ways out. Champions become the standard by holding themselves to a higher standard. It’s simple but it’s not easy. Like trains have a track, Champions have a checklist. It focuses them while it sets them free. It’s a way of being and doing at the same time. Mike Lipkin calls himself “The Championator.” He studies Champions for a living. He lives with them. He works with them. He coaches them.

Winning Through The Preeminent Customer Experience The choice to act is a partnership between emotions and reason 

The heart rules, especially when the options are so similar in form and function. But the head always has the final power of veto. It’s the E-Rationale principle of Buying Behaviour. Emotion is the call to action, Reason decides to heed the call or not. Both sides of the partnership must be satisfied. Excellence is the price of entry. Being outstanding merely keeps one in the game. Being perceived as preeminent wins the game – that’s when one is perceived as the benchmark by which all others are judged. The experience is at the core of success. It’s the central part of preeminence. It’s the customer’s personal connection with the brand’s meaning and distinctiveness. In this fascinating program, Mike Lipkin draws on the celebrated Environics Social Values Research and his contact with over a million people in 43 countries. He illustrates his insights with iconic examples of preeminent customer experiences based on exhaustive research. Delegates will learn The Ten Hallmarks of a Preeminent Customer Experience – what they are, why they matter and how they are executed at the highest level. As importantly, they will love the experience. In line with his philosophy that life is theatre with consequences, Mike entertains while he educates. Laughter is the soundtrack to all his seminars.
