“First and foremost, I think it’s [really important to identify] the difference between what is customer service and what is customer experience. … Business leaders don’t often understand the difference between the two.” — Crystal D'Cunha
“Think about how [you’re] able to include everybody in those conversations. … Really [make] sure that … [you’re] asking questions that appeal to everybody. Often, we’re too targeted on a particular demographic and we really have to open that up.” — Crystal D'Cunha
“Seventy percent of diverse organizations are … better able to capture new markets. And so, when you’re more diverse, you can grow your business easily [and] you’re better decision-makers as a diverse group.” — Crystal D’Cunha
“It’s so exciting when businesses embrace other cultures. You just want to do business [with them] by default … whether you need the product or service or not … because you recognize that they’re making an effort.” — Crystal D’Cunha
“Diversity is being invited [to the dance] but inclusion is actually being asked to dance.” — Crystal D’Cunha
“Sometimes we don’t have the service set up. What happens if something goes wrong? I always say, ‘WTW; What happens when things go wrong?’ … That’s what we need to plan for in terms of service delivery. Because things do go wrong.” — Crystal D’Cunha
