Dawn has taught time management, organizational skills, customer service, and conflict management to members of our staff and the evaluation forms all indicated that our employees learned practical ideas that they could implement immediately.
As a trainer, Dawn interacts with each person and keeps the entire class involved through her unique teaching style and role playing.  We have the opportunity to help plan the training agenda and we were able to work with Dawn to suggest special attention for employees that require more assistance.

The best part of all is that Dawn did reawaken our entire company to the importance of customer service. I have noticed a tremendous difference in how our employees interact with our customers and among themselves. And our customers have also noticed this, which is of course, the most important testament.
I highly recommend any company to consider hiring Dawn Mushill/Customer Service and Beyond to take the company to much higher level of customer service.

Dawn, I couldn’t have enjoyed your time with us more last Thursday.  Listening to your tips, examples and philosophy prompted even greater enthusiasm in my leadership role.  I left feeling on top of  the world, like anything is possible, with a post revival spirit of sorts.  I’ve started following you on Facebook already and look forward to getting your book.  I am a published poet (I know, poetry and banking… :) ) so I read all the time.  I love my work here at this bank and I love anything and everything that promotes positive life/leadership.  Thank you for what you do.  You do it very well and you’ve made quite an impact on this manager.

It was such a pleasure to work with you once again! Your trainings are always so thoughtful and full of great energy.  You had a hard task when we asked you to follow our active shooter training, but you really got our staff energized and ready for the task at hand!

We debriefed our leadership team meeting the following week and we are already seeing the fruits of the excellent seeds you've planted in all of us.  I asked the staff to reflect on what they learned and all of the comments were so positive.  Everyone appreciated the reminders about negativity and choosing to have a good day regardless of what challenges are presented.  For me, the biggest takeaway was to remember that everyone has their own story, and I can't super-impose the story in my head on their experience.

Thank you again for coming to our library!  We hope that the next time you visit, we will be able to WOW you!

It is with great pleasure that I recommend Dawn Mushill as training and development consultant for your organization.

She is one of the most pleasant individuals you'll ever meet or work with. She is forthright, but neither intimidates nor intrudes. She is genuinely friendly as well as honest. You will also be impressed with her authentic and professional manner.

I would highly recommend Dawn Mushill's "Customer Service and Beyond!" program for your public library staff, or any group that would like a refresher for excellent customer service.
We first experienced Dawn's program at an Illinois Library Association Conference where she was one of the keynote speakers. She was able to provide a very lively and inspirational program for a very large group. She was just as effective for our group of 30 public library staff members at the Edwardsville Public Library.
Using anecdotes and video slides- and plenty of humor- Dawn reminds us all what it means to provide wonderful customer service every day in a public organization.
If you're ready to fire up your staff and rekindle motivation, Dawn Mushill provides a great service. We had lots of good feedback from our staff and would highly recommend her.

You took all of the ideas that we came up with and put them all together into a presentation that was not only informational but interactive as well. That was no easy feat with an audience of approximately 200 people from all over the State of Illinois!

From the time that we contacted Dawn through the end of your presentation, the experience could not have been better or easier.  She took the real-world experiences we presented to her and put them together into a presentation that was specific to our services and our customers.  Her presentation was very well received by seasoned and new staff alike.  Even the biggest skeptic in our group raved at how good the training was.  Morale in our area has increased since Dawn's presentation.
I would highly recommend Dawn to every organization that is looking to improve their staff and customers' experience in the organization's specific service delivery.
Dawn, thank for being a good model for what you teach and providing us with a WOW experience.

Our team was growing fast, which meant we were hitting a few bumps along the way. We sent a few examples to help Dawn understand our problem areas. She was able to meet with our team and incorporate those problems into hands-on training. The models we gave were crafted into different scenarios so well that our team had no idea they were real situations. Dawn went more than beyond, and it shows in our group today. Employees still reference her training examples for help with their roles. We would recommend Dawn to anyone who is wanting to find a fun and unique way to train their teams and guarantee better customer service for their clientele.
