About Ben Gilkison-Duckworth

📖 Summary

I am a seasoned customer experience professional, leader and strategist. I am an expert in communication, sustainable process engineering, operational management, customer focused contact management and leading for sales success. As the head of customer service, account management and inside sales for PostConnect, a business of Australia Post, I have transformed both the customer experience and won the sales battle. Customer Satisfaction is at an all time high, the growth in account portfolios hasn't been seen before and the Inside Sales team is breaking new records. I have worn many hats throughout my career. Leader, agent, manager, researcher, vendor manager, program manager, excel guru, coach, analyst, shoulder to cry on, cook. As a result I have a depth of knowledge of the service delivery environment that allows me to ensure the success of not only the area I am working in, but every individual in that area and every relationship. This experience has developed in me the two greatest and complimentary skills I have, the ability to focus on the customer in everything I do, and the ability to actively engage with the customer. I also understand that my value to an organisation is the following: - I have big ideas - I care. I care about people, I care about customers, I care about success, I care about the company, and I care about doing a good job - I use stress as energy to succeed - People listen to me. My focus on the best outcome for all involved, customers, company and people, means that my ideas, statements and changes are listened to and acted on - I am creative and process focused. This means I think of a unique or a new way of doing business, and then make sure that every step is sensible, in the right order being done by the right person - I run towards fires not away from them - I understand that you need to focus on the short game, how we win right now, while all the time working on the long game, how we keep winningCustomer Experience Manager @ Reporting to the CEO the focus of this role is on the experience and advocacy of Camp Australia customers across the entire parent community.
