Small Fish Visitation to Corporate Hero Century Sdn Bhd

6 Oct

Business Coach LeikHong BizCoach have paid a visit to Teoh Chia Chun’s Corporate Hero office located at Sungai Petani.

Corporate Hero is a company that produced all kinds of corporate gifts – ranging from corporate uniform, t-shirt, cap, recycling bag and etc. Basically, if you need to do a customized gift, this is the hero you should be calling.
CC Teoh run a very in a very interesting company, he had successfully transformed a conventional business into a high values-driven company. Not only it produced high-quality corporate gifts but also a working environment that is really 1-Malaysia.
Teoh started his career as an engineer, while he doesn’t see much future in his career back then, he decided to come back to his hometown at Sungai Petani and helps his father who was a tailor as a sales person. He begins to approach companies, government agency, schools and associations who like to tailor made their organization uniform.
After much efforts, he realized that customized corporate uniform and T-Shirt is the trend and therefore he started his own company in 2006. Now Corporate Hero had been well established in Sungai Petani and been supplying all gifts and products not only in the northern region but across Malaysia as well.

复仇者联盟英雄,大家听得多;企业英雄(Corporate Hero),倒是挺新鲜的称号。尤其是在印制制服行业中,与“英雄”好像扯不上关系,但偏偏这家企业,确实是顾客心目中的英雄。
说起制服印制业,其实也算是夕阳行业的一种。惟,Corporate Hero Century Sdn Bhd 就正好颠覆了传统的制服印制业的经营模式,把”夕阳”扭转成”旭阳”。Small Fish 团队这次就北上吉打州双溪大年,一一为您揭开这企业英雄到底是何方神圣。
————
位于双溪大年市中心的Corporate Hero 拥有一站式的印制服务,从设计、起版、打模、印制、发行,一手包办。除了制服、T恤之外,还有印制帽子、环保袋、杯子等等。基本上,能够印制的物品,都可在这里找到。
说起Corporate Hero,就得从拥有电子工程师背景的”英雄创办人”张佳骏说起。Corporate Hero的成立,与他有个当裁缝师的父亲有着密切的联系。当年张佳骏虽投身在工程师行业,但心系企业,最后决定加入父亲裁缝事业。他笑言,父亲在他加入时曾说,要他拿针线当裁缝有点难度,倒不如让他成为“市场销售先锋”,为父亲带来更多的客源。
也因为在外勤跑市场,反而让张佳骏更了解整个裁缝行业的大环境趋势,更有感传统经营模式并不能够让裁缝业有更大的突破,因此萌生创业念头,而Corporate Hero就在2006年正式成立。
他补充,为了让公司有更广泛的客源,他决定以定制制服为主,专为学校、社团会馆、政府机构印制以往定制制服或T恤,而不是如同父亲的传统裁缝业,只裁缝特定的服装。基于以往的传统做法以及染料布料的限制,凡是印制特订的制服或T恤,都至少需要400件的量订单,也因此让中小型公司,学校等却步,除了因为价格高之外,数量也过于庞大。当然,客源也因此受限。
他将这限制转换得更具伸缩性,特别印制出现成的T恤制服,再让顾客选择加上想要的设计或标志等等,且重要的是,可以依据客户要的量,方便了不少只需要少量订制的客户。尽管事业踏上轨道,但张佳骏仍旧不断思考,让企业茁壮成长的同时,不断注入新元素,成为新世代的制服印制业。而目前,其企业着重在丝印技术(Silk Screen),呈现出更有素质的印制技术。而他也不断地引入外国的新产品,让客户有更多选择。
张佳骏也明白,事业上除了要拥有完善的体制之外,还包括团队。这说得也是,在Corporate Hero里头,每个员工如同英雄般各司其职,从设计、缝制、印制、素质管理等等,专业地把所有工作顺利做好。
“我们的使命就是成为客户的英雄,尽力将客户面对的问题,转换为顾客的快乐,并专业及热诚地为客户服务。”
值得一提的是,在Corporate Hero里是名副其实的”一个马来西亚”,三大种族都在同一个屋檐下工作,那种融洽氛围,让您看了都大为感动。而张佳骏也感恩,员工们都不会给他制造麻烦,且衷心度高,人力流动量也很低。他透露,紧接下来的Corporate Hero也将着重在社交媒体管道上,同时也逐步提升公司内的企业文化,提高员工的素质及增值机会,让员工与企业一同成长,发光发热。
——————–
在整个企业交流拜访过程中,Small Fish 创办人兼企业教练廖翊翃也赞赏Corporate Hero张佳骏的企业精神。
向来提倡企业文化的企业教练廖翊翃表示,目前很多企业都开始注重企业文化这一版块,不再只是典型的买卖生意。透过文化让自身的企业更能源远流长,把内在的核心价值给发挥得淋漓尽致,将企业经营得更有意义。
他也指出,目前很多企业开始朝向”企业参观团”(Corporate Tour )的发展, 透过参观团来了解某企业的运作与核心价值所在。他认为,Corporate Hero正好具备了企业参观团的条件,尤其是整个印制过程中,每一个步骤都让参观者获益良多。
他补充,透过企业参观团的方式,让参观者更了解Corporate Hero的专业运作方式,从中提升参观者或客户对Corporate Hero的信心,也因此提高Corporate 的知名度。
此外,他也赞赏张佳骏的”英雄”创意思维,把传统的制服印制业经营得有趣不乏味。同时,他也建议Corporate Hero在举办企业参观团时,应更凸显该企业的核心价值,同时也塑造员工们更专业的形象,让员工们为自己的英雄使命感到自豪,也更积极地为工作卖力。
当然,他也认为,除了赢得客户的心之外,公司内部给予员工的成长机会及提升也是不可或缺的,因为一个企业除了文化,经营理念,顾客体验重要之外,员工同样重要,就如Small Fish企业里常提及的方程式:
Brand= Purpose+ People+ Culture

Small Fish Business Youtube Channel

Small Fish Business Youtube Channel 

Creating an online Youtube Channel is something I always wanted to do, but for whatever reason, this task has been keeping delaying. Maybe one of the reasons is I did not have a good enough background to show cast my materials, well all this has now be resolved with the help of Ace Dot My.

I like to express my sincere thanks to Alex Chew (Founder and CEO of Ace Dot My) and his team for allowing me to use their #SmartONE teaching board.

The SmartONE is really a piece of high-tech technology tool for presentation, where I could upload and showcase my materials in almost any formats (text, pdf, powerpoint, photo, music, video, web & etc). As you can see from the video, it made my sharing really easy and convenient, all I need to do is just point my finger on the screen and all the wonder and magic will just happen by itself.

Furthermore, I can also sync the screen directly from my laptop, tablet or smartphone with SmartONE, with just a click of a button. Making presentation and conducting meeting effortless.

With the help of my good friend Vaniss Lee (CEO of Lee Video Production) and her crew members, we shooted 6 videos sharing about the topics of the marketing idea, strategic, branding and sales. Each of the videos is going to upload on the Tuesday of every week for next 6 consecutive weeks. So if you like what you see, please do share with your friends and colleagues.

07 星际大战之品牌觉醒

Star Wars - THE FORCE AWAKENS

作者:廖翊翃(企业教练)

标题:星际大战之品牌觉醒
 
 
星际大战(Star Wars)这经典的长青电影可说是电影史上最成功的系列电影之一,也拥有了40年历史的“品牌”。这“星战品牌”风靡全球,引起星战效应,除了归功于导演乔治.户卡期所创造的太空世界与它精彩的故事情节之外,最大的功劳还是归于世界各地的超级星战迷与粉丝。
 
“星战七部曲-原力觉醒”在2015年12月上映,上映以来它在世界各地所累积的票房达到20亿美金,是2015年最卖座的电影。撇开星际超级粉丝的角度不谈,我就以企业教练的角度来谈谈星际大战这部电影的品牌。
 
迪斯尼收购了卢卡期电影公司后,为了推出“星际大战7”这部电影而做了不少准备。迪斯尼很巧妙地善用世界各地的星战迷对星战电影的热爱,来大势宣传即将开拍的“星际大战7”。虽然“星际大战”的电影剧本与故事情节,向来保密功夫到家且只字不提,不过迪斯尼却巧妙地、选择性的透露有关选角或电影拍摄过程的某片段,甚至分阶段推出预告片,但始终没有真正的透露这部电影到底“葫芦里卖什么药”,让星际迷们纷纷揣测这些演员的角色是什么?它的电影桥段又会是什么?会有什么样的故事情节发展?
 
星战迷不断地上载自己所分析的短片及文章到各社交媒体与网络,与广大的全球星战迷交流及分享,制造了一个又一个的讨论区。在这部电影上映前,不论你是在面子书、优管、推特上都能看到有关“星际大战7”的相关消息。
 
一个品牌的成功,是在于“品牌说故事”的能力,星际大战的成功不是电影公司告诉你这部电影有多好看,而是世界各地的千千万万的星际迷告诉你,为什么你不可以错过这部电影。所以,你就要思考,如何让你的客户资源为你的企业打广告及宣传,这也是大部分人面对的“品牌与企业”的挑战。
 
愿原力与你同在。May the force be with you.

06 品牌与客户体验的魔力

标题:品牌与客户体验的魔力

如果今天你踏进任何一家商店,不论是餐厅、美容院、服装店等,你都会期望得到某个程度的客户服务(Customer Service )。在现今的商业环境里,客户服务不再是一项奢侈品,而是一项需要。一家没有客户服务的商店,是一家没礼貌的企业,不论它的产品再好,没多久也会遭淘汰。

有鉴于此,现在的服务业是需要迈进“客户体验”(Customer Experience )的年代了。客户体验是整个“品牌体验”(Brand Experience )的一部分。试想一下,你想让你的客户对你的品牌有什么样的体验?

笔者最近在 De L Vida Studio 拍摄婚照时,就对此家公司的品牌与客户体验有着赞不绝口。有别于一般的婚纱店,De L Vida Studio 是家小型精品式婚纱摄影室。此家摄影室麻雀虽小,但五脏俱全。从我与太太首次接触该摄影室的配套、选择婚纱礼服、拍摄当天,再到照片完成品,他们的服务可说是让我们感到无微不至的。

就比如说拍摄前,摄影师兼老板Jeerie先只身到拍摄的外景场地勘察,预先实体勘察当地的环境与拍摄的角度与灵感,让拍摄当天可省却不少的时间。在此之前,我们也与Jerrie 沟通了许多想法与概念,他亦用心的记录及呈现我们所要的婚照。

最令笔者与太太难忘与惊喜的是,当我们完成外景摄影后,步入午餐时间时,Jerrie 带着我们与团队到一家韩国餐厅享受烤肉与泡菜等美食。可想而知,当我们完成烈日当空下的拍摄,又累又饿的情况下,来到有空调的上等韩国餐厅用餐是何等的满足啊!而且还是Jerrie 买单哦。有拍过婚照的朋友听闻后都直呼我们好幸福,因为他们只能吃打包回来的炒饭或鸡饭,抑或是馒头包点。

一个好的品牌与客户体验,可让客户很乐意的为你的品牌做个免费宣传,可别小看这种口碑相传的魔力哦!

让社交媒体成为你的品牌代言人

题目:让社交媒体成为你的品牌代言人
 
 
许多国际知名品牌,在一开始时也只是默默无闻的小招牌。在经过无数心思的打造与耐心经营下,成为了家喻户晓的名牌。
 
“那我应该如何把我家的小招牌变成名牌呢?”有读者电邮问起。那我们就这个问题来探讨一下什么是品牌(Brand)。
 
我们商家是否需要花很多钱来把一个品牌给打响名堂呢?但大部分的中小企业都会面对资金上的局限,是不可能像大公司那般能够较自由的大笔花费在广告与宣传。在有限的资金上,我们是否也能够去打造属于我们的品牌呢?
 
如果时光倒退到20年或30年,即80年代或90年代,在有限的资金下打造自己的品牌,的确有点挑战;但在当今社交媒体及网络的发达下,这也不再是不可能的任务。相对下,在现时的环境打造品牌变得易如反掌。中小企业们已不需要大撒金钱聘请专业的品牌顾问公司或广告公司、找名人或艺人代言,或搞活动宣传。只要任何人都有部智能手机,再加上面子书帐号,这都能成为您的品牌代言人与宣传者。
 
打个比方,如果你是经营餐饮业的业者,今天你的顾客在你家店里用餐,而顾客对你的食品、服务等感到满意,那能不能要求顾客把你家的食品拍照后,放上面子书与朋友分享呢?如果他愿意为你这么做,那他是不是无形中成为你的最佳产品(品牌)代言人?而我们身边也有不少例子,很多顾客光顾某家餐厅,都会打卡告诉朋友他身在何处,更会拍下餐厅的美食,放上社交媒体与朋友分享。这就是为何我说,只要你有智能手机,社交媒体管道都会是你最佳的品牌代言人和宣传者。
 
由于打造品牌已从以前的“被动”,演变成今天的“主动”,品牌不再是您告诉(教育)您的客户您有什么,而是您的客户主动的宣扬及传达给其他潜在客户,你提供的是什么。如今的品牌已演变成一众体验,即品牌体验(Brand Experience)。什么是品牌体验?下一章告诉您我的亲身体验。
