Course Overview

The primary aims of this one day instructor led course are to refine the communications skills and revitalise the attitudes that transmit real Customer Care and to assist delegates to interact on the telephone with customers in a productive and positive manner.  The first contact is a vital moment to establish credibility and it is important that a positive lasting impression is made every time. This course will ensure delegates display the professional, polished image the organisation wishes to project, whether in a face to face setting or on the telephone.
