“The Maids International hosts industry taught leaders to speak with our franchise network during our annual Growth Summit and Étienne was a great choice to speak on the future of customer service with consideration to the connected digital world in which we now live. His presentation and speaking style were engaging and comfortable, and his content was spot-on with the knowledge we knew was important to be shared with franchise owners. Étienne customized his content to our audience and his presentation was professional and well received. We heard plenty of good comments from franchisees after the event! Personally, Étienne was a pleasure to work with and it was a breeze working through details and plans for his presentation.”
