There’s an amazing story about a woman called Zoe Shaw who became a millionaire receptionist. How did she do this? Well, quite simply she delivered five-star customer service and it was noticed. When a management member left to set up his own company, he asked Zoe to go with him and run reception. He couldn’t pay her a high wage, instead offering her shares in the company.
In 2005 the company, New Star Asset Management, floated on the stock exchange and Zoe’s shares were worth a massive £1 million; changing her life forever.

But how do you truly deliver five-star customer service?
