How Does Customer Service Impact Brand Value?

On Wednesday, November 7, 2018, Pete Canalichio will discuss the impact of customer service on brand value.

In marketing, we say that everything communicates. This can be a good thing or a bad thing. Great brands not only have outstanding products, but they also have exceptional customer service. Collectively, every customer encounter with a brand either makes a deposit into a customer’s bank account or makes a withdrawal. Like a with personal relationship, the more deposits a brand makes, the more we value that brand.


  • What is the definition of a brand?
  • What makes a brand addictive?
  • How does Customer Service factor in?
  • What are 5 service-related actions to build your brand's value?

Pete Canalichio  is a brand expansion and licensing strategist with over 25 years of business experience with such well known brands as The Coca-Cola Company, Newell Rubbermaid, and most recently, Licensing Brands – a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business that he founded in 2009. He’s also the author of Expand, Grow, Thrive. A U.S. Naval Academy graduate with a BS in physics, Pete served in the Navy as an award-winning aviator and instructor pilot. Pete earned his MBA from the University of North Carolina Kenan-Flagler Business School and was a Richard H. Jenrette fellow and salutatorian of his class. His talent and expertise in event licensing blossomed while executing such exciting events as the 1998 Olympic Winter Games in Nagano, Japan, the 2002 Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City, Utah, the 1998 FIFA World Cup (Soccer) and Major NASCAR events throughout the U.S. Throughout his career, Pete has worked in more than 40 countries and managed extensive projects across national and continental borders.
