A recently published international business book, co-authored by kiwi, Paul Stewart, was featured this week in the New York Times.

In this article, Brown profiles a number of books new to the market in recent months, including Branded Customer Service written by Janelle Barlow and Paul Stewart (Berrett-Koehler)

Branded Customer Service - The New Competitive Edge, was published in October 2004 and launched in 12 countries, including the US, UK, Australia and New Zealand. Publishers Berrett-Koehler (San Francisco) have since signed foreign translation rights for Spanish, Chinese and Russian.

Paul Stewart, a former Chief Economist of ANZ Bank, executive with Baycorp and now a director and partner with the international consulting and training company, TMI, collaborated with US-based Janelle Barlow (author of the business best-seller A Complaint is a Gift and, Emotional Value), to write Branded Customer Service.

Branded Customer Service is a comprehensive, practical guide that offers strategies, exercises, and real-world example of how to build cusotmer loyalty and trust by aligning customer service with brand promises. It features a number of case studies and examples from New Zealand companies.
