Helen Dewdney, The Complaining Cow, has always had a passion for fighting injustice.
In 2012 she started a blog sharing stories of tackling companies with poor customer service. It grew into advising consumers and then businesses. This was due to her experience, skills and having the ear of thousands of consumers and knowing what they want to experience in complaint handling and customer service.
Author of two best-selling books, reports and a wealth of media coverage, Helen helps both directors and senior staff in large corporates and small businesses to improve complaint handling through understanding customer perspectives and through challenge so as to gain and retain customers. She help turn them into superfans who rave and refer more custom.
The Complaining Cow Consumer Show – Linda Reynolds
Talking Travel chaos – Summer 2022
This week on The Complaining Cow Consumer Show I spoke with Linda Reynolds, a Personal Travel Agent.
We covered a wide range of topics, including:
- What is the media reporting about airline travel.
- What is actually happening with airline travel.
- Whether people are still booking holidays.
- What you can do to ensure that you are kept informed and that your time in the airport runs as smoothly as possible.
We also touched upon your legal rights if things go wrong. You do have rights, including compensation to delayed or cancelled rights. But there is much more in detail below:
