Course Overview

Customer service isn’t just important for an organisation, it’s essential! According to a recent Microsoft survey, 66% of customers are willing to spend more money with a company that provides them with excellent customer service. So, whether your employee’s contact with customers is in person, by telephone, or using email, every time your managers and employees interact with customers, they create either a positive or a negative perception of themselves and your organisation in the minds of your customers.

The one-day Providing Stellar Customer Service program focuses on helping employees from all levels to have the right mindset and to learn the specific techniques and strategies for being willing and able to deliver a higher level of customer service through their professionalism, empathy, communication, and conflict resolution skills. Regardless of how good your current service levels are, this important training program explores the critical aspects of serving ALL of your internal and external customers even better.
