Improv Comic Takes on Bad Customer Service

Improv Comic Takes on Bad Customer Service

As businesses become more automated, it’s starting to seem like good customer service is a thing of the past. But it doesn’t have to be this way. My guest today knows the art of listening, and he is here to discuss how practicing improv comedy can make you better at customer service.

This week on The Profit Express, I sit down with longtime friend (and fan!) of the show, Scott Baker. Scott is an improv comic and is one of the  Quickest Thinkers in Comedy. Scott is here to discuss how improv comedy and customer service intersect. We air our grievances of some of the worst in customer service, and why we aren’t just blaming kids today.

Download this week’s episode of The Profit Express for Scott’s tips on how your staff can start delivering stellar service.
