"If you make customers unhappy in the physical world, they might tell six friends. If you make customers unhappy on the internet, they can tell 6,000." 
  -  Jeff Bezos of Amazon 
Technology changes everything including customer service. With the rise of social media, the concept of 'word of mouth' is more powerful than ever before. An unhappy customer can tell thousands of people - and so can a happy customer. However, happy customers do not just happen by accident.
Today's consumers have different expectations when it comes to customer relations. Organizations need to redefine their approach to customer service by creating an environment focused on providing outstanding customer service to keep their customers happy and loyal.
On Wednesday, February 12th from 9 AM - 11 AM, the UGA Small Business Development Center at Kennesaw State University (UGA SBDC at KSU) is hosting a three-hour workshop  Customer Service for the 21st Century  taught by Daniel McCoy, Business Consultant, UGA SBDC at KSU; Certified Professional, SHRM. This workshop will explore today's customer service challenges that businesses and professionals face and discuss real world strategies to help an organization become a leader in exemplary customer service.
