Titled ‘Finding Gold Dust - How to Create Exceptional Customer Experiences’ the book is aimed at business owners who want to improve the service they offer.

“There are more places for people to spend their money and customers are looking for an elevated level of care and compassion post pandemic.

The book has topped the Amazon book charts in three categories: Customer Service, Admin and Public Relations.

“This book isn’t about bells and whistles,” he said.

“It’s about delivering the basics consistently which will result in loyal customers returning time and time again.”
