Any brand not emotionally engaging their customers, risks losing those customers to a competitor that will. Especially in a volatile market, consumers are likely to spend time and money where they feel valued.

With this program, you will learn how our time-tested methodologies foster a culture of personalized service and genuine care. Demystifying the legendary Ritz-Carlton Mystique, we will show you exactly how to anticipate and fulfill unexpressed needs, pivot quickly to customize interactions, and create indelible impressions.

Distinctive Topics:

  • Emotional Connection: A discussion about the difference between functional and emotional benefits and why this distinction is critical to brand loyalty.

In this presentation, Bob Langdon, and Kent Emison, founding partners of Langdon & Emison, will highlight cutting-edge claims with the potential for large recoveries for auto product liability and collision mitigation system claims involving automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning and other safety systems. These claims can add substantial value to your auto and trucking cases. Bob and Kent will also uncover the many hidden defects in vehicles and heavy trucks that can cause crashes to occur or result in more serious injuries or deaths.
