This workshop is designed to enable a philosophy of constantly improving your professional services to give you the ability to affect positive change both internally and externally.

As a service providing organisation, the way you treat your customers, clients and colleagues and their resulting feedback is an essential part of your success.

During the workshop, you will be able to enhance your people skills as we explore effective strategies for dealing with customers face to face, over the phone and across the varied electronic communication channels that we utilise on a daily basis.

All of the skills we work on will be of value both inside and outside of the workplace including body language secrets and the art of mind reading, how to deal with the difficult characters and what to do when you can’t say yes.

The workshop is inspirational, educational and packed with added value (and fun too).  All we ask is that you come armed with an open mind, ready to embrace customer service excellence as a part of your company’s culture.

The workshop can explore the following areas – let’s pick the most valuable skills and explore…

The Vision – Moments of truth in customer service and communication
Face to face expertise – Non-verbal behaviour and body language reading
How to communicate to win over the phone – 5 key skills
The art of communicating electronically – e-rapport building and Email excellence
Dealing with the tough stuff – beating the heat of difficult clients
Dealing with complaints – the opportunities and how to say no professionally

Both workshops will be interactive throughout and active participation is hugely encouraged - get stuck in and massively enhance your communication impact.

Who is this suitable for?
This programme is suitable for anyone who is keen to improve their networking skills, learn tips and tricks across various Microsoft Platforms and develop a greater knowledge and understanding the importance of Customer Service Excellence. All within a supportive and professional environment.
