154: Time to Have Some Insights

There’s a future where captivating presentations and innovative branding strategies set your business apart.

On this episode of The Customer Service Revolution, John and guest Chris Kocek, CEO of Gallant Branding, share the secrets to delivering presentations that will engage your team and ignite a shared vision that eclipses price wars. Chris brings his wealth of knowledge to the table, revealing how strategic branding and deep insights are crucial to reshaping your business and leading the charge in industry innovation.

We decode the success stories of disruptors like Airbnb and Netflix, tracing their path from recognizing customer pain points to reinventing entire industries. It’s not just about the “what” but the “how”—and we’ll show you how Liquid Death turned the water brand market on its head with a mix of environmental consciousness and punk rock flair. These are the catalysts for category-defining leaps if you want to challenge the status quo and reframe your brand’s narrative.

Finally, say goodbye to the old script as we explore the art of questioning everything. Marvel at how Polaroid’s instant photography shaped a culture of immediacy, and Warby Parker’s “why not” approach carved out a new vision for eyewear. We’re living change by changing contact centers into relationship hubs and placing faith in the power of “what if.”

If you’re ready to reshape the way you approach challenges and embrace innovation, this is an episode you can’t afford to miss.
