Name: Leave blank if you're a human:

Discover what it really means to be an ambassador for your organisation, and "join the dots" to see how customer service fits into your organisation as a whole as you trace the customer's journey from first contact to loyal customer. During the discussions and exercises, you'll learn where your personal and organisational customer service weaknesses are, and leave with solid techniques to plug these gaps and make your customer service the envy of your competitors.

This participant-driven training course will teach you how to provide the kind of service which will make you stand out from the competition. A solid course framework and huge opportunities to self-analyse and discuss industry-specific issues come together during two action-packed days, as you consider who your customers are, what they expect from you, and what you can provide which goes beyond their expectations.

Who should attend?

Customer Service professionals or other customer-facing staff who would like to provide service which makes the business excel.

Why take this training course with us?

As a sales-focused company, we know how much work it can require to win a new client. We also understand how easily a hard-won client can be lost when their experience as a customer doesn't match the experience during the sale.

We bring this in-depth knowledge of client expectations to customer service teams to help elevate an organisation's quality of service to the level at which customers tell others about their good experience, rather than searching for another supplier. This course is highly participative, making it very specific to each organisation through the structure of learning, discussion and group exercises.
