some really cool ideas here.  I love the idea of asking what is the one thing we could have offered and didn't to learn how to serve our clients better.

I love that one too Tammy, the catch here is having an open mind and ears to hear and accept a clients feedback and then make the necessary changes to make a difference in our "future" service and customer's experience.  :-)

Interesting video and ideas!  I especially like the idea of creating a survey, which has been on my to do list for a while.  I'd love to create that with the last paragraph being a place for them to give me something I can then (with permission) add to my website or other sites.
