What a Cabbie Can Teach Us About World-Class Customer Service http://t.co/I7b8oRdcpK
How do we differentiate ourselves from the other competitors on the playing field so we truly stand out to our clients and prospects? It's a hugely important question these days given all the noise in the marketplace -- and believe it or not, the best answers might just come from a taxi driver.

About Paul Foster

Paul Foster is the founder and leader of the team at The Business Therapist®. His business experience began as a trusted advisor (CPA, CA) to small business families as the owner and founder of an accounting firm which he sold after 20 years.

In 2010, Paul was recognized by his business advising peers as the RANONE North American Advisor of the Year.

In 2011, Paul went ‘back to school’ himself as the Entrepreneur in Residence and then as the Lean Startup Advisor, both positions at the Odette School of Business at University of Windsor. Throw in a trip to Stanford for Steve Blank’s Lean Launchpad program in June of 2013 and some painful lessons as a startup founder himself, Paul is a seasoned veteran of the business development world.

Whether you are starting, growing or selling your business, Paul has the knowledge and relevant real life stories ready to share with you.
