Make your own magic with Disney methods

It’s a simple formula. Anyone could articulate it. Almost everyone has difficulty delivering it. The challenge is in the details. This is where Walt Disney excelled. Details like the alignment of purpose and expectations, a people first focus, an immersive environment, performance themed employees and a relentless drive for process perfection are the Disney difference.
In this engaging live or virtual presentation, I will share details of the Disney difference. You will examine ways Walt’s customer service strategies were, and are, applied to real service issues. Focusing on your needs, you will then identify specific methods you can apply to your business needs and make your every customer experience magical.

 

Bio: Lenn Millbower, the Mouse Man™ teaches Walt Disney inspired customer service, leadership, innovation and presentation skills methodologies. Everything Walt Disney touched seemed magical. It wasn't magic. It was method. Learn the method and you can create your own magic.

Lenn saw that method up close. He spent 25 years at Walt Disney World, starting in Operations at Epcot, stage managing shows at Disney-MGM Studios, opening Disney's Animal Kingdom, writing training programs for employees at the Disney University, designing performance improvement programs for business professionals at the Disney Institute, leading training for Walt Disney Entertainment and managing the training function for Walt Disney World Learning Solutions.
