TRAINING FOR YOU AND YOUR STAFF
As we return to ‘business as normal’, it is clear that many of us have been away from the normal everyday tasks of providing services to our customers for some time. In some cases that could be as far back as last season.
To help you get back into the swing of things, we held five online webinars run by Claire Boscq-Scott, The Busy Queen Bee.
Claire has over 25 years of experience in the industry and passed on her wealth of knowledge in these essential sessions designed to brush up our skillset.
Not everyone was able to make the free online course, so we have reproduced each of the sessions with Claire here.
1. Who are our customers?
2. Team work – understand yourself to understand others.
3. The importance of Rapport Building.
4. Developing and delivering exceptional experience.
5. Complaint handling.
