Mr. Goldberg's accomplishments both at Citibank and at DTR Inc. were many. At Citibank, Mr. Goldberg was one of the first to look at customer service as a profit center, not just a necessary expense. He was the first to actually quantify the correlation between service and profits. His bankcard customer service profitability model was a jump off point for a change in Citibank's corporate-wide strategic plan. Citibank made service delivery their cornerstone to gain a competitive edge in the marketplace. At DTR Inc., Mr. Goldberg developed a work readiness training program (philosophy, lesson plans, in-class exercises, assessments, competency statements, teacher training process, certification test) that was called the best in the Country by a member of the National Skills Standard Board at a presentation of the Program in Jacksonville, Florida on 01/14/03. His client, the Workforce Development Board of the Treasure Coast (Florida) ,calls the program Mr. Goldberg developed for them,Work Certified, and has implemented the program throughout the United States.
