Do you wonder why dealing with customers on the telephone can often generate problems that are never encountered face to face?
While telephone enquiries provide sales opportunities, one bad experience with someone on the phone may be enough reason for a customer - even a regular customer - to look elsewhere.
The telephone is your customer's lifeline to your company. Yet although it provides fast and relatively inexpensive communication, it is a medium that is impersonal -- and switchboard and other telephone staff must be able to prevent negative behaviour on both sides.
To raise the awareness of customer service on the telephone and assist delegates in providing telephone service excellence.
Who Should Attend
All staff members who use the telephone as part of their normal duties.
