DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES--(Marketwired - Jun 24, 2015) - As The Ritz-Carlton continues to grow around the world, so, too, does its legendary reputation for service excellence. Organizations, from aviation to healthcare, seeking guidance on embracing and sustaining a similar culture, now have the opportunity to learn directly from the source.

The Ritz-Carlton Leadership Center® is hosting its one-day Service Excellence Culture course August 25th at The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai International Financial Centre. Led by the Leadership Center's Vice President, Diana Oreck, the course allows attendees to understand and sustainably enact the proven strategies of The Ritz-Carlton in their own organizations, such as MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital Center, a past course participant.

"Creating a culture of service excellence is a journey," the organization says. "The Ritz-Carlton Leadership Center launched and framed the journey for us. The Leadership Center set clear goals with us and helped us collaboratively establish a vision of where we're taking the organization. We've been on the journey for two to three years now, and since working with The Ritz-Carlton Leadership Center, we have seen notable and measurable improvement in our patients' experience."

Those who attend the full-day Service Excellence Culture course walk away with knowledge and tools for: differentiating their company from the competition through service excellence, driving brand loyalty by developing a customer-centric culture, reducing errors and the need for rework by establishing robust operational systems, furthering brand recognition and reputation through customer engagement, and improving employee engagement and reducing turnover through empowerment.

The course is perfect for senior leaders and managers, and costs $2,050 per person, including continental breakfast, lunch and breaks.

"I am looking forward to the Service Excellence Culture class in Dubai," Oreck says, "where I will share how the iconic Ritz-Carlton brand sustains a consistently customer-centric culture around the world."
