[P.O.W.E.R. Plug Podcast] Creating WOW Experiences for Clients



Many businesswomen know how to make their clients happy but how many of us know how to create a “wow” experience for them? If you created a “Wow, this is going to be fun and exciting” feeling for your clients for a special moment or upcoming event, would they love you even more? Could it lead to more business? Would your clients rave about it and refer you to their colleagues and other networks?

Chances are, yes! That's why today we are going to talk to someone who creates “wow” experiences for her clients every single day and learn about how she does it.

In this podcast episode I speak with Diane Lyons, the president, and owner of Accent-DMC. Diane is a certified meeting planner and destination management certified professional who began Accent-DMC with just two people. For over 28-years, she and her team have built an award-winning event planning and destination management company that creates unique and unforgettable special events that truly showcase the best of New Orleans. She has also been recognized twice by New Orleans City Business Magazine as a “Top Woman in Business” and has received the Handcraft Heroes award for her contributions to women with cancer.
