Renowned Motivational Speaker Nancy Friedman to Talk at Luxury Travel Expo

Do you ever wish you had a magic ball or telepathic powers to help you minimize clients’ frustrations? How about just someone to reveal the five forbidden phrases that you should avoid when dealing with customers? Once again, Luxury Travel Expo will give attendees the knowledge they need to keep customers from going red because of something their travel advisor said.

Acclaimed motivational speaker Nancy Friedman, founder and president of Telephone Doctor Customer Service Training, will take attendees through a riotous information rich program, "How to be an Island of Excellence in an Ocean of Mediocrity," during the Wednesday General Session on December 8 at 8 a.m. Both seasoned luxury advisors and those just launching their own businesses will laugh and learn during Nancy’s tutorial on how to get customers to swear by you and not at you. Attendees will also learn the A to Z’s of selling during Nancy’s educational session, "Ordinary to Extraordinary: Sales Skills From A to Z," on Thursday, December 9, from 2:45-4:15 p.m. View the complete schedule here.
