"Micah Solomon's message is one that is especially timely for law firms, as they seek to maintain the loyalty of their 'customers' (i.e., the clients) and provide value in an increasingly competitive legal services environment. In Micah's live presentation his common sense teachings of the basic lessons of customer service are presented with deftly humorous illustrations that are useful in raising the consciousness of lawyers and support staff to the perspective of what our interactions with clients are like from a customer perspective. For a law firm or any professional services firm, Micah's advice puts an appropriate and sharp focus on the service aspect that is so central to our profession and business."

Brian Schoenbaechler, Managing Partner | IntegraCore

I was really impressed with the level of detail (and the memorable examples, positive and negative) you presented during your talk. Learning from the wisdom of--and occasional missteps--of companies like The Ritz-Carlton, Starbucks, Netflix, and more is extremely enlightening. I was also heartened that your approach is truly hands-on: you are one of the few speakers/consultants who has really practiced what he preaches; the examples from your own entrepreneurial experiences were a wonderful part of the presentation. The takeaways for my team were supremely practical--and we're already making use of them. I have already recommended you to other business owners and executives.
