What about Bob

bob-tux-graybkgrndBob Pacanovsky is a speaker, trainer entrepreneur, and an expert in making people create great first impressions and turning clients into loyal fans!

Like you, he has seen the “good enough” mentality when it comes to how people behave,act, and serve people in the workplace.  Do people truly know that they are now being observed in almost everything that they do?  Do they know their personal brand and the brand of their company can now be promoted all over social media in both positive and not so positive ways?

With over two decades of working “in the trenches” to cultivate loyal and raving fans,Bob knows what it takes to elevate the customer experience.  Unlike other speakers, Bob speaks on how the subconscious —and real— impressions generated by the organizations and the impressions generated by employees TOGETHER increase customer loyalty, lower employee turnover, and improve organization profitability and performance.

bob-tux-graybkgrndBob launched a new company, The Vation Group, in January, 2015, after selling his catering and event company that he founded in 2000. He has now moved his speaking and training business to his own website (BobPacanovsky.com) and has left the Hospitality and Event Consulting with The Vātion Group.

Bob has spoken to numerous companies, colleges, and organizations, including the national Catersource/Event Solutions conference in Las Vegas, the COSE Small Business Convention, and The Ohio Society of CPA Conferences and is a consultant for The Corporate University at Kent State- Stark Campus.

Companies including the Akron Summit Visitors & Convention Bureau, ComDoc, Aultman Hospital, Apple Growth Partners, and the Great Trail Council of the Boy Scouts give Bob high marks for his ability to capture the attention of the audience and keep them interested and engaged.
