Yesterday (the presentation) was wonderful! The whole group was just raving about you all day. I appreciate everything you did for us.


Joel G. Newman – President and CEO of American Feed Industry Association

Our committee relies on its speakers to offer a quality program – and you certainly delivered! We fully recognize we would not have such a successful event without the excellent presentations and stimulating discussions provided by talented individuals like you. I think everyone had at least one, if not more, take-away messages that they could implement in their own organizations as soon as they got home. Your contribution to the conference is greatly appreciated.

Teri, You were such a pleasure to work with and our audience loved your presentation!


Debbie Butler, PHR, SPHR-CP -Oklahoma State University Medicine

“I have worked with service consultants for more than 20 years and Teri’s support and dedication is unprecedented.  In June 2017, we completed her portion to a yearlong project that has jump started the amazing service culture for our clinical staff at Oklahoma State University in Tulsa.

Teri’s passion for creating a culture of service excellence is unsurpassed. I cannot thank her enough  for her expertise in making this process a success.”


Stephen Cox, Chief of Strategic Operations – Alliance of Community Health Plans

I have heard nothing but positive reviews. You kept attendees engaged and more importantly thinking critically about service/experience. Many have already talked about how they can bring this back to their organizations and teams. It was probably the highlight of the agenda.


Dr. Joyce Stewart – Deputy Superintendent


You are a hit in Everett Public Schools and employees are starting to use the common language.  I am going to look for every opportunity to bring you back!

Thank you for helping change our culture.

The group interaction made it fun and exciting. She was a captivating speaker and offered some great ideas. Her suggestions were relevant, practical and served as a great reminder to always exceed client expectations.”

“Teri, I’m excited to see our development along the path you helped us begin.  Thanks for the strong start.”


Danielle Peckham, Director of Special Projects Spring Independent School District

“The engagement of our entire District has been improved by the impact of “Service Excellence” as introduced by Teri Yanovitch.  Teri led many workshops and presentations for our leadership team over the past year and a half.  Each of these sessions was strategically tailored to fit the needs of our teams and audiences.  Her stories and reliability are both inspiring and educational in delivery.  People are drawn to Teri Yanovitch’s words and wait if possible after the sessions requesting autographs and or wanting simply to speak with her and relate on a personal level.  The evaluations given out reflect high marks for all the sessions we have had; Teri has prepared our team to move forward with creating our own culture of ‘Service Excellence.’ ”


Karen Goff – Agnes Scott College VP for Student Affairs and Dean of Students

“Thank you, Teri!  It was a great day and you gave all of us some things to consider as we seek to be more intentional about serving our students with excellence.  I am sure our paths will cross again. ”
