The Customer Internal Customers: Inside your Company External Customers: Outside your Company What are their Expectations? People who’s expectations are not met, will tell 9 – 10 people! Misery loves company!
Influences: Demographic background Education Financial Status Family Size Past Experiences Other?
Expectations Courteous Staff Correct Information Concern for the Individual
