- Our outstanding feedback
- More great feedback
Thanks once again for an excellent presentation to our members this morning on Client Engagement. We have been running this club for 20 years and it is always good to see members hanging on your every word - I have had several requests for the slides as an aide-memoir - so well done and thank you .

I think for us the biggest thing that stood out was how useful it was to do the exercise; often we get some good feedback from our clients and we always ask them to do feedback forms, so we're used to getting good feedback, but it was good to get some things to improve on as well because that's the feedback people often don't give on a normal feedback form; they'll give the good bits but rarely the stuff to do better so that's useful for us. One of the biggest changes we made was to make me take on the role of Client Services. Before we were trying to get feedback from clients but there was no one person responsible for doing that; off the back of that feedback we restructured the business and made sure that all of our clients would get a quarterly review, and that they were made aware that, off the back of their feedback, we would be making changes to ensure they receive an even better service. If we do it again Enquir3 will be the only ones we'd go to.
ReplyEmma, thank you for your extremely positive feedback.

I think the value for us is the fact that we've been able to quantify the value of work that we're delivering, and also get some completely independent, unfettered feedback, so we get some home truths that perhaps wouldn't be delivered to us directly. This has meant that we've been able to put some of those snippets of information into awards that we've entered for customer service, and we won the Brilliance Award for Customer Service,and we were able to use quite a lot of data collected by Enquir3 to do that. We've also been able to feed back to our team about how we're doing as a business and how people feel about the service we provide, and the service of team members, so it's been valuable for internal communication, reassured us where we were doing well, as well as highlighted any problems arising that we weren't fully aware of, and also a bit of a wake up where there were niggles we weren't aware of. We also hoped it might highlight opportunities which we haven't had as much, but it's helped us see where we can do better with our client relationships and what we can do to help them.

The service provided by Enquir3 was open, friendly, quick and well described. I've got some good testimonials, reassured myself that customers I thought were happy are happy, and I know I can use those testimonials to good advantage going forwards. I really like the video Enquir3 produced and would like to use it on my website and marketing. I was impressed by the speed with which this was carried out, and the professional approach and results. I would be happy to use Enquir3's services again in the future.

It's all very good. Enquir3 are very personable, and understanding with great attention to what our requirements were . We were confident that the project would be managed effectively so that we would be able to get the results that we require. Now we have a thorough understanding of what our customers think about stuff and we're able to use that data effectively for the benefit of the business. We are segmenting down our customers into bronze, silver and gold categories so that we can start to invest in our existing customer base as well as new business. It's all excellent. I can't fault it.
ReplyJo, many thanks for your extremely supportive feedback and comments on the overall Enquir3 process. We look forward to supporting you as you continue to develop your client engagement strategy.

For me it was very quick and efficient. I now have a good idea of what customers think and if there were any issues I would be notified so I could take corrective measures.

A lot of the feedback we've had has been very good and reinforced what we hoped they'd say, but it's also given us nuggets from one or two clients that we weren't aware of, so it's improved our relationship with them. It's also reinforced some elements of our internal culture and how we do things. I'd used Enquir3 with a previous firm and saw the benefits there of spotting clients likely to leave. The reason I was able to get the budget for it is that it helps to support one of our key aims for this year which is quality of service. So far we've targeted clients we know fairly well or work with comprehensively. I want to target newer clients, and if I'm being frank I'm looking for people who don't like what we do and can give us more constructive feedback to help us deal with what their issues are, and work with them better, or perhaps discover that we're not the right firm for them and we'll be aware they're moving on. Hopefully the former. I like that Enquir3 give us the warts and all almost straight away, rather than waiting until the end of the week to get a summary, which allows me to pass more information on to our team and to make my request to them to go and phone the clients so we can follow up where appropriate.
ReplyJohn, thank you for your positive comments. It's great to see the benefits coming through in terms of enhancing client relationships and improved client retention.

The analysis of the client satisfaction interviews provided by Enquir3 was good - very insightful. The interviews have first of all given us the opportunity to learn from our customers and it also gives our clients a voice, knowing we are listening to them. It is an excellent driver to push for process improvement. Most of the time we know the areas we need to improve on, but the client feedback helps us to explain changes required to staff more effectively, to the point that we use this with some members of the team as part of their KPIs. This enables us to have an ongoing programme of general improvement that we are working on continuously. I can't think of any improvements that Enquir3 could make. We are very happy with the service; it was everything I hoped it would be and more.

What made it different to the others is that Steve sat down with the cohort in a conversational style. When he came in he said he was happy to just have questions fired at him throughout the presentation which made the room more relaxed and allowed the conversation to flow, and for people to challenge ideas, whereas other presenters talked at the cohort which I think gives more opportunity for questions not to be raised. I think the conversation style really worked, especially with the small room we had that day. It was good that Steve's session was steered in the way the cohort wanted. I would say that the flyers that showed stats, and insight into the way that clients behave, was what our cohort would have taken the most. In the slides he had information on how you would publish a testimonial and then a bit more information on how you could get a video testimonial and case studies. I think that brought up quite a few questions so I think a lot of our table weren't too aware of what they were doing with that, so they learnt in that area. We run these events each year and we've spoken to Steve about coming back for future events.
ReplyThankyou for the opportunity and your kind words Sam. I’m very passionate about developing businesses of all sizes and exploring how we can better engage with our clients and feel very proud and privileged to be able to present the topic to equally passionate individuals. It is wonderful to hear that you enjoyed my presentation and hope to work with you again in the future. Steve Darnell
There were a number of people who were apparently available to help with everything that I needed. The benefits of the Enquir3 system were explained several times in different ways so it was very easy to grasp, and they use the phone to communicate which I like. It has shown me how having a live test can increase my engagement with my good clients, and theoretically improve engagement with other clients. Beyond that, if I use the system properly it should bring my client's client's to me. As for my clients, if they use it then it will increase good exposure with their clients, and force them to engage with clients they may not be talking with much. The whole point is to get people to talk to Enquir3, give complete feedback as they can tell Enquir3 any complaints or bad bits, anonymously if needs be, and then processes can be improved based on that feedback to improve the overall customer experience, and hopefully bring in more business. What is really good is the way Enquir3 deal with me; they ring me up and I could leave it to go to voicemail but I don't. If I'm with somebody I will say "Sorry, I need to take this as it's important but I'll tell them I'll call them back", and that should be massively valuable to the guys at Enquir3 and gives them a big 'carry on with what you're doing' It's good because with lots of other people I'll just let it go to voicemail or ask them to text me and I tend not to do that with Enquir3 unless I really have to

I think what was good was that Enquir3 did everything for me. I didn't have to get involved in any of the chasing. Enquir3 made it easy. It's early days but it's nice to have been able to have the feedback from our clients and it's benefited us in that we know we are doing a good job; It's given us some confidence.

I've been having a conversation with Niki this morning with a few things we want to tweak at our end, and it's all been sorted which is really great; I'm really happy with that. The feedback Enquir3 are taking from our clients is a robust, well laid out process. I like the way that everything is done from Enquir3's end; We almost don't have to get involved at all but for giving information at the beginning, and the follow up at the end. The middle is all taken care of. We just see the emails pop up saying we have feedback. From the point of view of benefits we've received at the moment, we've had a lot more exposure through the Google reviews which is one of the two things we wanted to get out of the process. For us, finding ways to get clients to do Google reviews we've found quite hard, but the way it's been able to be tied into the Enquir3 process has saved us work and saved us hassle. Also, getting open and honest feedback from our clients is something we've struggled to do in the past, purely because of the time as we're busy and doing our work, so talking to clients and getting open and honest feedback has been difficult, but working with Enquir3 we're getting good feedback, but we're also getting open and honest feedback on areas we can improve. Talking to someone outside of Inca, people are more open and honest. We've had some glowing feedback and some really great bits with areas we can improve.

Enquir3 carried out a Client Engagement Audit for us. What I really liked is that they are friendly and professional people who use a measured and organised approach, and understand how they can add value to a clients business. Working with Enquir3 has provided three main areas of benefit 1) We received positive customer feedback in the form of testimonials that exceeded our expectations. 2) Where customer feedback has generated constructive criticism there has been enough information provided to enable us to act on this, and improve our relationship. 3) This has enormously helped members of our team to feel more confident about their relationship with their customers. Members of our team now feel empowered to have that conversation and be more proactive with their clients. The client facing people in our business are fee earning accountants, not necessarily natural sales people, so that kind of ammunition is really powerful for them.

I like the concept of contacting existing clients and finding out how they feel objectively. I like the feedback that we're getting from our clients. We've had some positive customer feedback and we've been able to utilise that within our marketing strategy, and when we've had negative feedback we've been able to address and resolve it.

Enquir3 have this great infographic showing the traditional way of marketing, paying money on a website and going the traditional route with social media etc., then it was presenting a different way, talking to your clients, finding out what works and what doesn't, fixing what doesn't, and going back for referrals. It seemed to me more logical and more likely to work, so I put that into action with my own company. It was useful feedback on what works and what doesn't and, when I'm at the point that I want another client, I have the ammo to go forward and get some referrals. I got emails every time they got a response from somebody so that was very good. We have recommended Enquir3 to a couple of my clients. What I said was that it's a bit different. It's something you can use alongside your current marketing methods to market your business. One of them uses social media quite a lot as they have a website etc. to promote their business. The other is an architect so it's more about contacts, people you know and building relationships. I thought both of them could benefit from getting some feedback from their clients and taking a more structured feedback approach. It's a no brainer. They both have high turn over so it's such a small investment, and because of the kinds of businesses they are it represents a large portion of their revenue, so just to get the top 10 clients represents a large part of the business.

I like the transparency of what you're doing. You don't come out with complicated reports, it's very straightforward. It was delivered in a very professional and personable way. It's enabled us to address issues with our members which we wouldn't have picked up otherwise.

I found the session was very informative and liked the way our business was broken down bit by bit in an interesting and interactive way. This caused the team to voice their individual opinions to the team and then all come to a mutual decision about where we would like the business to go and who we should target to make it grow. Since the workshop I have noticed a vast difference in the approach the seniors have and it has created a lot more motivation within the team as an effect.

Daniel from Enquir3 gave an interesting talk on how businesses can get real value from their existing clients and customers. He clearly knows his subject area well and can back up his conclusions with evidence from a variety of sources. Daniel revealed several surprising truths that we were unaware of and stimulated questions and discussion that were useful to everyone there.
ReplyIt was my pleasure to deliver the presentation to the 'Box Business Breakfast' networking group. It was great to see a range of local businesses so enthusiastic about engaging with not only their clients but other 'stakeholders' such as prospects and suppliers.

I like the fact that it gave us huge insight into our customers. I liked how Daniel presented the data to us. It was easy to understand. It's been very valuable. It's enabled the business to look at what we do and change a few things which has a really positive impact. I think it's fantastic.
