Larry Hochman

Globally recognised expert on customer relations and corporate culture

About

Larry Hochman is a leading global customer relationship expert who spent 10 years in senior management roles with British Airways and the loyalty management company, Air Miles, in both New York and London.

His roles included Director of Customer Service and separately, Director of People and Culture – Larry being the first person in Britain to hold this title. He has rolled out industry-leading culture change initiatives including British Airways' 'Winning for Customers' programme. This was delivered to 55,000 employees around the world and was considered the benchmark for culture change programmes in Europe.

In a world where ‘smart machines’ are playing a larger role in everyone’s life, and customers are having fewer personal interactions with people representing your brand, they are valuing each and every one of those interactions more than ever before. Every touch-point with a customer matters, but human touch-points are suddenly more significant and more telling.

If unique value is derived from the relationships you have with your very best customers, remember those relationships are a ‘human thing’. They are about people:  You, your colleagues, your expertise, your enterprise, your care, your kindness, your empathy.
 
The Customer Experience; on-line, off-line, in-store, offshore, on the phone et al simply matters more than ever before. In the not-so-new social world, customers increasingly do your marketing for you and their power to either reward or punish you could determine the success or failure of your enterprise in ways you have not yet imagined.

The Customer Experience is today therefore not only a top priority, it may be your only priority.

Since 1998, Larry Hochman has been running his own speaking, mentoring, and consulting business. He is a globally recognised expert on customer experience, customer relationships, customer loyalty, customer service, corporate culture, change management, leadership and the future of HR.

His best-selling book, The Relationship Revolution, focuses on customer loyalty and how best to add value to customer relationships in the digital age.

Originally from the USA, Larry Hochman has lived in Europe for the past 30 years and divides his time between London and Venice.

Testimonials

Your startling appraisal of the way business is likely to change in the next few years was sobering and thought provoking. This is exactly what is needed to help our business managers 'think outside the box' about ways in which their own markets may change and how they can adapt themselves to exploit the opportunities that presents. At the same time your messages in so many different ways fit well with the overall 'Think Customer' theme for this year's Forum.

Alan J. Wood, Chief Executive - Siemens UK

A lively and passionate presentation.

The Tarmac Group

Larry Hochman understands the business zeitgeist exceptionally well. His argument that authentic customer relationships are what will separate the winners from the also-rans is provocative, challenging, and totally relevant.

Dr. Stan Maklan - Cranfield School of Management

Larry's thoughts on customers, culture and talent are uniquely valuable for any business, anywhere in the world today. In his speeches and his book, The Relationship Revolution, he reminds us that business is about people and that relationships are the value drivers of today's best companies.

Sheldon Wiseman - President and CEO Amberwood Entertainment Corp

Throughout my career having someone like Larry Hochman as a mentor has for certain made me better, braver, bolder and wiser. His insight, passion and knowledge make anyone stronger and he has a unique ability to help you reflect and come away feeling renewed.
