Holly Stiel – Inspirational Speaker

By choosing Holly Stiel as your keynote speaker, you will not only earn rave reviews as the event planner, but your company will realize enormous and lasting benefit from Holly’s inspirational keynote address.

Holly delivers a number of keynotes, with the common theme of inspiring attendees to deliver customer service in the style and manner of a world-class hotel concierge. Holly teaches that personal awareness leads to responsibility; and that real service occurs from the inside out. Through cultivating awareness and a desire to serve, people begin to enjoy what they do and will, as a result, do it better. They become emotionally connected to their brand, resulting in a deeper relationship with the customer. The customer, in turn, experiences a genuine exchange with the service provider, resulting in return business, positive word of mouth, and loyalty. The manager is endowed with an empowered employee, a devoted customer and higher revenue. This is the foundation of Holly’s concierge philosophy of service.

Applicable to any business with a customer service component – including, but not limited to the hospitality industry – Holly’s keynotes teach participants to actually think like a concierge and adopt a true “How May I Be Of Service” attitude from the inside out.
