Course description

Delivering Excellent Customer Service - 1-Day Training - Open Course or In-House Training

We communicate with our customers in three distinct ways: face-to-face, by telephone and by email. Customers can stop buying from companies over even the smallest attitude of indifference from one employee. Using social media, bad customer service from one employee can go viral. This training will help you move your customers up the loyalty ladder to become advocates of your service rather than terrorists. 

This 1-day training will empower you to use body language, the power of your voice, well chosen words, to make customers feel important and empowered to buy your products and services. It is conducted in Benchmark's "Laugh While You Learn" style which equips participants with theory and practical skills through a combination of lecture, quizzes, competitions, and discussion.
