Welcome to the Putting the F in Fun podcast. We're Vicky and Dave and we're about two things...

Adding VALUE    &    Having FUN

We take a fun and irreverent look at different aspects of business and life as well as delivering value and learning.

It’s an age-old phrase: The customer is always right. But is it true? And what can you do about it when they’re not? In this podcast we discuss the awkward subject of when the customer is wrong. We explore customer relationships and how to have a healthy rapport even if you’re meeting through a letterbox!

What are we talking about…

  • We’re on Dry January – how smug can you get?
  • Don’t ignore the experts and the evidence
  • Perceptions, expectations and values
  • What's the worst thing that can go wrong with your customer and how to put it right
  • How to avoid blaming games
  • Letterbox love and terrible typos
  • A spaceship in Uranus!
  • Customer – you’re fired
