Jeannie's clients would agree that she's a gifted motivator...

I just wanted to say thank you for the telephone customer service training. This was a great class and I enjoyed it very much! Thank you again for bringing your expertise to our people.

(Colorado Family Support Council Annual Conference 6/6/17) "I wanted to take the time to say ‘THANK YOU’ for the wonderful speech you gave to the Child Support team. Through the years I have attended many work conferences and conferences with world renown speakers. Lisa Bevere has always been my favorite. I would compare Jeannie to being "JUST AS GOOD!" It takes time, passion and dedication to deliver the energy that Jeannie Davis delivers. She has the passion to share what it means to effectively communicate. It takes sending and receiving. Many people can send a message but it takes "YOU" to also receive/listen. Jeannie has taught me what it takes to put a smile in your voice and to remember your attitude is not only seen but also heard. If the words you share with others is not beneficial, then those words shall not be spoken. Words leave history. Create the story you want left behind and to be told about you. Thanks again for what you do!”

“This was the first real ‘lesson’ that I’ve received since graduating with my MBA. This experience not only tied together all the experiences that I’ve had in my professional and scholastic career, but it also taught me many new perspectives that I will utilize for many years to come! Thank You!”
Jenny Riley
“Jeannie, thank you so much for presenting a fabulous and fun workshop to our administrative support staff. Everyone found something “worth the price of admission,” and all seem dedicated to putting what they learned into practice. We are well prepared for an excellent school year.”

“I found this program, "Managing Telephone communication for Great Customer Service" to be enlightening, providing excellent suggestions on how to manage your own behavior and attitude while dealing with an unhappy customer. Jeannie Davis certainly hit on some of the mistakes that I've made, but offered realistic suggestions on how I can change my strategic method from one that may have been negative to one that is positive, giving my customers the feeling that I truly do care and will do all that I can to resolve their issues in a courteous, professional, and timely manner.”

“I found you and your program to be very beneficial for our teams. The Denver Hospice is the largest, oldest, and most trusted end of life care provider in the region and we are made up of several areas that interact with the public and each other on a frequent basis. A lot of our phone work is comprised of calls from referral sources, patients and their families. Each of these encounters need to be handled with a delicate touch and respect. Hospice is a sacred time for patients and their families and the skills and tools that you present in your program will help us to do even a better job listening and caring for our community.

Thank you for bringing your special touch to our lives. This will make a difference in how we serve. ”

Director of Operational Support

“Thank you for the great training for phone skills and customer service. Our department really enjoyed the session, your training style kept the learning enjoyable and fun. I still am receiving comments from my employees about how much they learned and what they took away from it. Thanks for sharing some information that will truly make a difference for the team and our members!”

“Jeannie, thank you so much for presenting such a great workshop to our entire practice. From the comments I hear, everyone found something “worth the price of admission”, and all seem committed to working on the skills they learned.”

“I have attended a lot of corporate trainings in my day, but your customer service presentation was the most effective and informative. Your presentation goes way beyond customer service.”

"I have heard nothing but positive comments from my team regarding your training. I see improvement already and have heard several members incorporating your tips into their work. As a Communications Center for student transportation, it’s important that parents know that we care. We learned how to convey that over the phone or in person, by painting a good “picture”. Your class was informative, interactive, and fun. I think we all got far more than “the price of admission”.

"I just wanted to thank you for the fantastic class you gave to our Customer Service group. You presented many valuable points for our individuals to learn from and utilize in their everyday positions here at Water Pik, Inc. With your wit and knowledge, you made the class very entertaining, and educational. I overheard some of the team members talking about how enjoyable the class was. "

"I just wanted to thank you for making me look good by doing such a wonderful “refreshing” workshop. My staff and I have been feeling so “Perky” all afternoon and I certainly can tell the tone in everyone’s voice, let alone the smile on our faces as we talk, has improved tremendously today! I think I need a picture of your face so we can all look at it daily to remind us of great customer service!"

I just listened to your Telephone Imagery seminar on cd and loved it! You have a wonderful way of explaining things that I personally have said many, many ….MANY times! Jeannie I want to thank you for your insight. Sometimes I get down because it’s so tedious to continuously remind my team of tone, smiling when on the phone, making the customer feel good. Anyway, I appreciated the information and wanted to thank you for your gift.

"I would like to thank you for a great training session. I found your Telephone Imagery class to be very informational and fun. I really enjoyed your teaching technique and I left your class feeling more confident and knowledgeable. You were wonderful, Ms. Jeannie, and I hope to take more classes from you in the future. Once again, thanks for your time and thanks for being such a great teacher!"

Collective Feedback
"This was one of the best workshops I have attended regarding customer service. Jeannie Davis was well informed and kept the entire group engaged throughout the session. It was great to hear her tips and techniques regarding phone service. She really liked the fact that we are going to call our service the Answer Center opposed to Call Center. She addressed everything from attitude to the 3 different learning styles. I think the thing that will stick with me the most is the fact that for some of our customers we will be the organization and we need to be aware of our “personal lobby” and making it a warm and inviting place for all our customers. She showed us how the PICTURE customers form impacts the success and feeling of the phone exchange. P = posture
I = inflection
C = courtesy
T = tone
U = understandability
R = rate
E = extra mile "
Lynda Dickson
Answer Center Supervisor
Poudre River Public Library District
"Thank you for making it possible for the Answer Center team to attend the Telephone Imagery Workshop. The things that were most helpful for me were the illustrations of how so many details can come together to make the difference between amazing customer service and terrible customer service -things like having a smile in our voice, avoiding slurring words together (ex. "wouldya" "lemme" etc.), saying "I am unable" to do something rather than "I can't", etc. Particularly enlightening to me was the section on the three communication styles (visual, auditory, and kinesthetic). Each of us communicates using primarily one style. The technique when communicating with a customer is to figure out which style they are using and try to match it for the most effective problem solving results. That was something I had never even considered! Thanks."
"I came back from the Telephone Imagery seminar with a whole slew of helpful things. I didn't think that there was that much to be learned about talking on the phone, but the whole thing wasn't so much about phone conversation as it was about providing the best level of customer service possible through effective communication. W all feel that we're effective communicators, whether it is over the phone or face to face, but I learned that we all have a bit of review to do. Just simple reminders like using positive words and phrases, speaking in mutuality, using positive self talk to ensure you're always being cheerful and avoiding "attitudinal leakage" were worth the price of admission. However the bit that I walked away with that made me the most excited was about individual communication styles, and how to effectively identify and match them up with the communication style of patrons in order to be as efficient and friendly as possible. I'm already practicing it on my friends and family!"
"Talk about Roving for Telephones! Yup you would have never guessed it to possible. Jeannie Davis was awesome. I learned throughout the class of some maybe not so good phone etiquette that we all do automatically without even knowing it. I would have to say over all the main topic of the class would have to be “Can your Smile be heard?” Jeannie would say do you have some “Attitudinal Leakage” coming through? Inflection is the salt and pepper of your words. I’ve learned that beyond the common knowledge of basic customer service, we must learn to Identify and speak the customer’s language. You need to be prepared, look good and feel good. All of these can affect the way we present not only ourselves but our organization. I must say that I was really impressed with the information that was presented and would definitely recommend this class to anyone that deal with customers over the phone. "
"Jeannie does a wonderful job of engaging and connecting with her audience. She provides many customer service techniques that can be easily and immediately implemented in the work place, and that are very effective in improving customer relations. She is a pleasure to work with and I will definitely use her services for future customer service training needs."

“Your presentation made a clear and convincing case for the power of creating a positive company image via the telephone. Our members will never answer the phone again without remembering your advice on how facial expression, posture/body language, inflection, vocal tone, diction, and courtesy can make or break every customer interaction.”

“Thanks so much for your upbeat presentation! It was a great start to my day, and I know I will use as much as I can remember in my daily life. So much of what you said applies to interaction with people outside of work, too! Yours was the best, most informative, and mind-changing presentation I have seen through MSI. Thanks so much for helping us. I wish I could have heard you speak years ago – it would have saved me a lot of grief!”
Jennifer Welteropth
“I took Jeannie Davis' program called Telephone Imagery: How Does Your Customer See You at the National Association of Realtors convention in New Orleans. I found the information to be very relevant and Ms. Davis' teaching style to be dynamic and easy to understand. I attended nine conference programs during the convention and this was my favorite! I highly recommend this program and Ms. Davis to any individual or organization seeking to improve their telephone skills and customer service.”
