This workshop is designed for anyone who has contact with customers whether face to face or on the telephone.
It will explore what it means to deliver excellent customer service and exceed customer expectations.
During the workshop we will consider the importance of first impressions and how to develop rapport with customers by using empathy to help meet their requirements.
The skills required to deliver excellent customer service will be explored and we will also consider the challenges when dealing with customers and how we can remain objective when confronted by an angry customer.
The importance of teamwork when dealing with internal and external customers will be discussed to ensure that everyone plays their part in delivering a quality service.
We will also explore methods for controlling the conversation by asking powerful questions and actively listening to the customer.
Finally, we will look at how we can separate the emotions from the facts when having difficult conversations with customers.
