SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Zendesk, the proven cloud-based help desk software provider, today launched its Zen Masters webinar program, a new series featuring today's most prominent and influential thought leaders on customer service.
The series offers organizations expert advice on how to build long-lasting relationships with today's digitally connected customers. It provides step-by-step solutions for building sustainable, profitable customer loyalty while delivering exceptional customer service across an ever-changing business landscape moving at the speed of the Internet. The Zen Masters webinars teach organizations how to delight customers and provide tools and information that goes beyond the tried and true methods of cultivating customer relationships and customer satisfaction.
"The Zen Masters series is a wonderful opportunity for anyone interested in customer service to learn best practices from the most prominent leaders on this topic in the world," said Zendesk COO Zack Urlocker. "The best of the best have partnered with Zendesk to create a series that revolutionizes how people are talking about customer support."
Kicking off in November is bestselling business author and keynote speaker Micah Solomon, a thought leader on customer service and sales, branding, and company culture, who marries today's technological and communications reality to the timeless secrets of building customer loyalty.
In the series-debut webinar on November 30, Solomon will discuss how to engage with, serve, and earn the loyalty of today's digitally informed customers. Solomon, whom the Financial Post terms the "new guru of customer service excellence," will draw on both his recent bestseller, Exceptional Service, Exceptional Profit and his upcoming High Tech, High Touch Customer Service, as well as the expertise he has shared with his consulting clients in the pages of FastCompany, Inc., Bloomberg Businessweek, Forbes.com, and elsewhere.
"Building customer loyalty is a challenge in today's connected world, whether your business is online, brick and mortar, or a modern-day hybrid of the two, the principles I share will help participants build true customer loyalty within the realities of today's digitally interwoven world, where everyone knows everyone," said Micah Solomon.
