Customer Service Excellence – Open Course
Customer experience training is crucial for any organisation that works with customers or clients. New communications methods and opportunities for immediate responses mean that setting and managing customer expectations is ever more vital. Each and every interaction between employee and customer provides an opportunity for either a positive or negative impression.
Employees with effective customer service skills will feel a greater sense of satisfaction and commitment to their job and in turn will provide positive experiences to customers. These skills make a positive impression in the minds of current and future customers retaining and building the organisation’s customer base.
Delegates will learn how to give positive first impressions, manage customer expectations, and build lasting customer relationships even when things go wrong.
