3. Customer Experience with a focus on organisational culture and helping people prepare for Customer Experience certification.

Over the past 20 years,  Dan has facilitated sessions with more than 50,000 Participants in more than 40 countries (and lots in Australia and Asia-Pacific) through his OmniTouch International business with thousands of powerful testimonials a testament to the quality of the training material and his presentation skills.

Global CX Expert Daniel Ord

One of only a handful of Authorised CXPA Training Providers in the World

In 2019 Daniel became one of only a handful of individuals in the world who are formally accredited as a CXPA (Customer Experience Professionals Association) Recognised Training Provider* and he’s the only one who visits Australia on a regular basis (when he’s allowed again thanks to COVID restrictions!)

*Recognised Training Provider is the current certification – this is not the same as an Authorised Training partner which is an old, outdated status and is no longer valid.

A man in demand!

When you are one of the top experts in the world it’s no surprise that people want to hear from you! Daniel is a regular guest on numerous podcasts (including our own CX Central Podcast with local expert Justin Tippett), he chairs conferences all over the world and he’s been a judge for countless awards programs across the globe.

And if that wasn’t enough, Daniel is also a prolific writer contributing numerous articles on CX Central as well as his own website, and he’s well known on the LinkedIn community for sharing his insight and passion into the industry.

When Daniel isn’t working… 

When he’s not in training rooms around the world, you’ll find Dan inside art galleries & museums, taking long walks (he’s known for going on some very LONG walks!), reading, writing and sampling some of the beautiful wineries in his neighbourhood.

Art also runs in Daniel’s blood – he previously owned an art gallery in Singapore so it’s fair to say he would be one of few the people in the world who is a world-leading CX trainer by day, and an art connoisseur by night!

Born in America, Daniel moved to Singapore in his late 30’s and he liked it so much, he stayed! Daniel became a long-term resident of Singapore for 20 years forming a great base for training across the world as well as establishing great networks across the Asia-Pacific region.

After 20 years in Singapore, Daniel relocated to Germany in 2019 to join his partner and in between training courses, he spends his time walking through the local villages, sampling the local wineries and of course taking in the beautiful views.

The course is a great overview in managing difficult situations/customers. Daniel is highly engaging and passionate in delivering the content and he provides great examples and effectively guides/demonstrates these for participants, ensuring they are taking on each topic.
The team have really obtained great knowledge to put to action in their day to day roles. In addition, the techniques are very simple and realistic which will enable a quick refresh for teams down the track with the content provided.

I thoroughly enjoyed attending the training course. The host was very easy to listen to, always had a smile and provided some really helpful insights on how best to respond and not respond to a customer.
I highly recommend this course and think no matter what level you are at, everyone can take something away from it.

Vodafone Fiji being South Pacific’s most advanced & leading telecommunications service provider, was leading its way towards the digital transition of most of its services & operations. This meant digitizing it’s customer touchpoints & thereby getting our staff up to speed in serving these customers using the new channels. So that’s where we reached out to an expert in this trade to assist us in this journey of coaching our CC staff. Daniel Ord did a fantastic job & the results were visible during the program itself. That’s one of the fastest turnarounds I’ve seen from a coaching program!  Rizvi Amith, Heading the Digital Business & Service Innovation for Vodafone
