Who We Are

What started as a group of like-minded business professionals in a LinkedIn business group focused on elevating the importance of service, has evolved into the present-day Service Council™.

Our founding principle was based on the realization that the expansive and highly fragmented population of Service, Customer Experience, and Customer Support Executives were in dire need of an organization that facilitated peer-to-peer collaboration.

The Service Council™ exists to provide a nexus of community and information sharing, endeavoring to codify and refine best practices, while raising awareness of the importance and benefits of establishing a service-led organization.

What We Believe

Smarter Services™

A company-wide operating methodology which recognizes the role and importance of service as it impacts customer centricity, satisfaction, loyalty, retention and overall customer experience while eliminating an isolation of customer support to service, customer experience and customer support line of business. It represents the HEALTHY BALANCE that links issue resolution, service profitability and happy customers; and delivers a consistent and effective customer experience across all channels at every phase of the customer journey.

Service is Humanity™

A company-wide cultural philosophy which recognizes the role and importance of service on humanity looking beyond traditional operational metrics. It represents the EMPOWERMENT of the Employee to create unique experiences at his/her discretion to create exceedingly exceptional customer experiences which improve the World.

What We Do

The Service Council™ exists to build and support a platform for education, knowledge, networking and insight for the community of business executives overseeing functions of service and customer management.

Our platform enables business executives to sharpen their strategy AND apply industry best practices through:

Research & Data

Benchmark your organization against service leaders.

Analysis & Insights​

Seek guidance on the latest trends impacting service and customer support strategies.

Community & Events​

Validate your service and customer support strategy through experiential learning.
