Marketing is what we tell the world, branding is what the world tells everyone else. Because culture trumps everything else leaders do in business, creating client loyalty as part of the business’ DNA is crucial to the sustainable success of the business. In this presentation, participants will come away with a better understanding of the difference between satisfied clients and loyal clients, the tangible value of loyal clients and the importance of creating memorable moments of truth.
Rick Lochner started RPC Leadership Associates, Inc. after nearly 30 years of Management and Executive Leadership experience in a variety of service industries. As a graduate of the US Military Academy at West Point, Rick immediately saw first hand results of effective leadership leading soldiers in environments as extreme as the interior of Alaska to the front-lines of Germany. After the fall of the Berlin Wall, he traded his Army uniform for a business suit and, for the next 18 years, held leadership positions ranging from front-line management to executive management in Project Management, Sales Engineering, Customer Service, Vendor Management and Operations. He has effectively led organizations through change in large corporations and privately held entrepreneurial ventures, in multiple industries, both for-profit and non-profit.
In addition to earning his BS from the US Military Academy, Rick holds an MS from the University of Southern Mississippi and an MBA from Keller Graduate School of Management.
