Chief Collaborator : Team Wakabayashi

Welcome, I’m Dennis Wakabayashi. Over the past 30 years, I’ve been privileged to develop customer experience strategies for renowned brands like FedEx, AT&T, McDonald’s, and Wells Fargo, using a distinctive approach I call the 3R-4E strategy. Are you interested in enhancing your brand’s customer experience? I’d be honored to understand your needs and help shape a unique CX strategy for you. Let’s discuss how we can work together to create meaningful customer relationships for your brand. Book a consultation with me today.
