The Five Forbidden Phrases
What are those wicked little phrases that instantly turn your customers off? They frustrate, they annoy, and they cost your business. As Nancy delivers the Telephone Doctor’s famous FIVE FORBIDDEN PHRASES, you’ll recognize them right away. Learn how to permanently banish them from your vocabulary, and replace them with powerful phrases that build customer loyalty and increase your sales. This content-rich program is designed to get your customers swearing BY you, not AT you!

The Golden Nuggets of Customer Service & Sales
FACT: You get less than 20 seconds when a customer walks into your store or calls and asks a question. It’s those 20 seconds that means the sale. Nancy’s Golden Nuggets program is unique, engaging, entertaining and educating.

You’ll be laughing and learning ideas, tips, skills and techniques you’ll use immediately and forever to ensure your business captures & navigates that important call. There’s no magic pill, potion or wand to create customer loyalty that companies such as Apple, Amazon, Zappos, Whole Foods, Disney, Southwest, Chico’s and other get; but Nancy will get the ball rolling for you and move the needle on your ROI.

Labeled a “don’t miss” session, this program is for the seasoned executive to the novice employee.

10-Point Self-Assessment Quiz
See exactly where you and your company stand in delivering the almighty customer experience. Why do you need to know? For starters, consider these surprising customer defection facts:

  • 8 of 10 people who will never do business with you again won’t tell you that. They just go away.
  • 8 of 10 people will tell 11 others how bad you are (yet only 1 of 10 will tell others how good you are!).

No one aspires to mediocrity, so learn how to soar above it! Keep your customers coming back and singing your praises. This interactive session begins with participants taking the Telephone Doctor’s eye-opening 10-point self-assessment quiz.

You’ll see where you land on the customer service spectrum and pinpoint the gap between where you are and where you need to be. Nancy leads participants through each of the 10 points, arming you with customer service and sales tools you can use immediately and forever.

  • Learn the language of sales from Nancy Friedman, an expert in capturing and navigating the customer contact from lead to sale. From soup to nuts, front to back, and A to Z, this dynamic and interactive sales program is bursting with tips, skills and techniques you’ll use forever.

    Whether you’re a seasoned sales executive or just starting out, you’ll walk out of this session prepared to handle every sales situation like a champ. Always a hit and labeled a DON’T MISS session! Come join the fun. Special bonus: Nancy shares the 5 Most Frustrating Voice Mail Phrases. The invaluable Q & A at the end is worth the entire program! (DVD and projection screen used)

    Is it really different, selling to women vs. selling to men? Hmmm, …

  • Do they drive differently?
  • Walk differently?
  • Think differently?
  • Do they talk differently?

    You bet they do. And they buy differently, too! Nancy delves into the ‘how to’ of selling to women. And not just because she is one. She understands and shares the driving forces behind a woman’s buying decisions. If you miss certain cues, you could miss the sale. So don’t miss this laugh-out-loud, yet very serious session! Oh, and there are more than just 5 “musts” (that was just to get your attention!), and you can probably use them on men, too!

  • How much is that doggie in the window? You may recognize that as an old song, but it’s still a current question. If you get price-shopped, this is a great program for your audience. You see, most people ask about pricing because that’s all they know to ask. It’s normally not really what they need at the first breath.

    Whether on the phone or in person, if your employees (or you) are giving away price estimates and not getting anything in return (like a name or an appointment), that’s a lost opportunity and possibly a lost sale. Nancy is an expert at engaging the contact, getting names, and gathering information. She will help you get more appointments and eventually more sales!

    Stumbling blocks. Most everyone encounters them, whether they happen in your personal life or on your career path. But it’s how you handle these situations that will set you apart.

    Through the story of how Telephone Doctor came to be, you’ll learn how the basic entrepreneurial spirit carried one dream into reality, and how you can gain the entrepreneurial edge.

    As an expert in cold calling, whether it’s business-to-business or business-to-consumer, Nancy has presented this program to those in need of sprucing up their cold call techniques. Whether you’re a novice or a seasoned sales person, you will learn something new and valuable.

    She’s the author of Telesales from A to Z and has some of the most effective sales tools and techniques available.

    A powerful program for salespeople who want to improve and succeed.

    Nancy Friedman, The Telephone Doctor, brings the 8 Killer Words to life – words that distract, words that confuse, annoy and can stop a conversation. When that happens, it can be tough to get back on track.

    Some of your folks may be using them. And if they are, they could be “killing the deal.”

    You’ll wish you had known about these words sooner; you’d have saved a lot of sales.

    I’m often asked, “Nancy, what exactly is the Customer Service Experience?”

    Well, as you can imagine, it’s not one thing. It’s many things – some big and some quite small or simple. Together, they create an overall service experience for your customers that builds loyalty, positive sentiments for your brand, and ultimately a stronger bottom line for your business. In this fun, content-rich program, Nancy shares a treasure trove of information that will help you bring that “EXPERIENCE” everyone is looking for into your organization.

    This session will benefit organizations of every size and shape, and applies to participants at every level, from the front line all the way to the top!

    You hear it over and over… Gee, customer service is just plain old common sense, isn’t it? Well if it were, there wouldn’t be so much talk about it!

    So let’s just admit it: Common sense in customer service is NOT so common.

    In this program, Nancy goes over the subtle differences between what’s right and what’s not; what’s common and what’s uncommon; and the words and actions that frustrate the customer, no matter what industry. If you’ve ever been irritated by a service situation and thought, “Gee, you’d think they’d use some common sense,” then this is a good program for your group. Like all of Nancy’s programs, she engages with the audience, and gets them laughing and learning her “common sense” ideas and techniques!


    “Nancy is a communicator and that, among her other delightful personality traits, makes her easy to work with and there arent any surprises on-site.”
