    About the Presenter:

    Stan Phelps, CSP

    Stan Phelps is the Founder of PurpleGoldfish.com, a think tank of customer experience and employee engagement experts based at the Frontier in Research Triangle Park. He is a TEDx speaker, Forbes contributor, IBM Futurist and Certified Speaking Professional that inspires leaders to think differently about their most important stakeholders. Stan’s keynotes and workshops focus on the value of customer experience as a competitive differentiator and the importance of employee engagement in building a strong corporate culture. He has spoken at over 400 events in 16 countries (US, Canada, UK, Spain, Ecuador, Peru, The Netherlands, Japan, Russia, France, Germany, Australia, Bahrain, Malaysia, Israel, Singapore, Vietnam, and Sweden) for Fortune 500 brands such as IBM, Target, ESPN, UPS, Ricoh, GSK, Tesco, and Citi.

    Stan challenges brands to explore new opportunities, showing them how to be more successful in tomorrow's changing world. Working with clients to create keynotes and workshops that are memorable, meaningful and on-brand.

    He’s the author of 10 books: Purple Goldfish, Green Goldfish, Golden Goldfish, Blue Goldfish, Purple Goldfish-Service Edition, Red Goldfish, Pink Goldfish, Purple Goldfish-Franchise Edition, Yellow Goldfish, and Gray Goldfish. They all focus on the little ways to drive differentiation, increase loyalty, and promote positive word of mouth.

He also spent seven years as Chief Solutions Officer at Synergy, an award winning experiential marketing agency. At Synergy, he helped create larger than life brand experiences for brands such as KFC, M&M's, Starbucks and organizations such as NASCAR, MLS, and the USTA.

    Stan started writing and speaking in 2009 on the belief that "differentiation via added value" can be a game changing strategy. For far too long, the overwhelming majority of marketing has fixated on the eyes and ears of the prospect. Not enough has been focused on creating experiences for current customers that drive referrals. Great customer experience is about being so remarkable that people can't help but talk about you. That if you absolutely delight someone – they will not only come back, but they'll bring their friends.

    Stan received his BS in Marketing and Human Resources from Marist College, a JD/MBA from Villanova University, and a certificate for Achieving Breakthrough Service from Harvard Business School.

    He is a Past-President of the AMA Triangle, a 700+ member chapter of the American Marketing Association. He also currently serves on the Advisory Board for Special Spectators. Stan lives in Cary, North Carolina with his wife Jennifer and two boys Thomas & James.

    Sometimes it’s organizational change- cultural transformation.

    Or, it may be more uncertainty, more disruption, more competition. And, it can be the people side; how to cope. Fear and anxiety, new management new staff and new roles can be an opportunity for growth. Plus, an opportunity for additional learning and possible advancement too.

    We understand that change is a constant and it’s our job as leaders to assist staff who are struggling, give them the tools and let them know they’re not alone. From innovation and technology to increasing sales and a strong workplace culture. We’re in this together and change is constant.
