Keynote Speaking and Sales-Service Excellence Training

As a former Ritz-Carlton Global Executive and Recruiter Bart has something to offer all audiences. By focusing on real life experiences Bart is able to provide genuine and actionable insights into the world of business and human behavior.  He shares stories that will help to "move" others toward better results and greater learnings.



A Growth Mindset 

A growth mindset promotes a culture of continuous improvement, adaptability, and innovation, which in turn helps with employee retention, talent attraction, customer experience, and partner relationships. Often we are so BUSY in the NOW, that we can’t think about tomorrow.

This discussion walks attendees through methods of “DOING NEXT”, moving FORWARD, and how to capitalize upon the major benefits of having a growth mindset.  



Ask, Listen, and Act

Retaining and nurturing your talented workforce is essential to maintaining a productive and successful organization. This topic delves into the strategies and best practices that companies can employ to prevent their valuable employees from leaving for other opportunities. By understanding the key learnings from this topic, you can create a more engaging and rewarding work environment, fostering loyalty and long-term commitment among your team members.



Doing Right By and For Others 

What does "Doing Decency" truly mean in the workplace? It goes beyond surface-level politeness; it embodies a profound dedication to honesty, fairness, and respect in all interactions. It creates a culture of kindness, compassion, and ethical behavior that extends to employees, customers, partners, and society as a whole.  Learn how we all can embrace "doing right by and for others" in and outside of the office. 




Unlock the incredible rewards of taking action, even when distractions and obstacles may attempt to deter us. Join this engaging conversation as we delve into the genesis of this trademarked approach and its transformative application, resulting in profound gains in both personal fulfillment and professional excellence. Discover the secrets to achieving extraordinary outcomes by embracing the mantra of "doing" what "Most People Don't.



Sharing and Caring Leadership 

Discover the art of self-awareness and harness the power of aligning your individual strengths with the goals and aspirations of your team. Whether you're a "Buffalo" charging forward or a "Goose" flying in formation, this presentation will inspire you to embody the best of both worlds - the strength and unity of a buffalo and the collaborative spirit of a goose.  



Observing, Anticipating, and Over-Delivering 

In a world increasingly driven by transactions and fleeting interactions, the concept of "Heart and Sold" emerges as a powerful profound and meaningful relationship to establishing connections with others.
This approach encourages individuals to move beyond transactional exchanges and delve into relationship-driven interactions that foster emotional connections with both the seller and the product or service being offered.


Service Above Expectation

If at a restaurant, you're met with a mere correction, "So, you want a hamburger," it might not reflect a service-oriented approach.

Customer expectations have been reshaped. By observing, anticipating, and over-delivering with each interaction, you service excellence will stand out. Join us as we explore this art even when it means crafting a cheeseburger without cheese.



Flexibility is the Foundation 

Helping others is not always easy as it requires passion, purpose, and teamwork to exceed the expectations of our guests, customers, and stakeholders. 
This session celebrates the theme for BEING BAMBOO in our daily lives. Offering resilience, flexibility, adaptability, and sustainability by "doing". 



Do Your Best and Celebrate YOU

Despite everything please remember that "YOU’RE DOING GREAT.!"  It’s a reminder of the importance of sharing positivity. Whether you're facing challenges or simply need reassurance, remember that as long as you're doing your best, YOU’RE DOING GREAT. Sometimes, that's all we need to hear.
