First impressions count a great deal and are seldom more relevant than in the hospitality or retail environment. Hotels, restaurants, stores, spas, or golf courses, are all places where first impressions significantly affect the perceptions of customers. Customers’ first and last experiences with the professionals who work in these environments greatly influence their decision whether to book, enter, purchase, or return.
To achieve customer satisfaction, loyalty, and referrals, it is vital to create a lasting positive first impression. In many cases, a customer’s impression of a brand during a first encounter impacts how they perceive the brand later.
If professionals in these environments want to ensure a positive first impression and lasting customer experience, they need to focus on all aspects of the customer journey. Hospitality and retail brands must consider factors such as physical space, exteriors, menus, signage, as well as quality, positioning, and pricing.
But what about the professionals themselves? Are your employees aware of how they can affect your guests’ or customers’ decision-making process? Hospitality and retail professionals may not realize how much their appearance, behavior, communication, and digital footprint influence customers’ decisions.

Sylvie was a pleasure to work with from the very start. She was responsive, well priced and accommodating to come into the office and meet with our team a few times. She exemplifies the characteristics that she teaches.
Sylvie was absolutely delightful as she embraced, engaged and empowered the AutoZone team during her International Women’s Week keynote presentation. She developed an instant connection and kept her audience captivated. She was responsive, well-organized and took the time to prepare well in advance, which included visiting an AutoZone store! We would highly recommend Sylvie; she has set the bar high.
It was interactive and informative, our people loved her. Additionally, Sylvie spent her own time listening to our other speakers in order to integrate her message to the whole event.
