Sometimes life is all about patience and perseverance. Around the Accenture halls I jokingly get called the ‘cheerleader’ due to my North American enthusiasm for ‘customer service’; all that it is and all that it has the potential to become in Holland.
Through my years here in Holland I have met a few individuals on occasion as enthusiastic as myself; however, they all shared one similarity. They didn’t believe there was a way to turn their dream into reality. I was beginning to wonder if anyone here had read the book ’Dromen, durven, doen’….?
Then one fall day in November 2010 I met a man, a man with a dream, and for the first time in many years I could see by the determination in his eyes that this man was determined to turn his dream into reality. This was the day I met Roy Scheerder (Vice President Marketing KLM Netherlands), a man with a dream and a desire to pursue it. KLM Netherlands and Accenture had been working together for many years and had shared many successes together as a result of a trusted partnership. This long term relationship was a core reason why Roy Scheerder turned to Accenture to help him with his new challenge: turning his dream into a reality.
On February 9th Roy will be presenting his story of how KLM Customer Care Netherlands transitioned from a re-active to a pro-active customer service team. A team that works together to deliver exceptional service to its’ customers, a team that works fact based and with predictive models to ensure they can adapt to unforeseen changes in volumes: a team that maximizes the effectiveness of the daily execution through clear communication and strong leadership.
“It’s about changing a non-critical process into a value-adding service for customer and commerce.“
– Roy Scheerder
