Brandtender Marketing: True Customer Engagement From the Inside Out

This book helps businesses understand and deliver on the premise that “your people are your brand.” By empowering employees to leverage their individual styles, they’ll build the relationships required to help customers enjoy their experiences. The book outlines employee-customer encounters that go from “Unforgivable” to “Unforgettable,” a powerful reminder of how important employees are to the success of any business. No two organizations have the same cultural DNA, and that’s what differentiates you from the competition—once you learn how to leverage it.
