COURSE OVERVIEW

There's more to customer service than polite words like "Please and Thank you." You have to mean it. You have to truly want to serve customers. That doesn't mean give in to every demand. It means putting on your "Can Do" hat and working with customers to resolve their issues and earn their business.

This interactive workshop will focus on successful strategies for building and maintaining a solid customer base. We'll help you find ways to better understand the needs of your customers, handle complaints and difficult customers, and anticipate your customer's needs. Customer service is the foundation on which success and profitability can be built. After all, it's easier to keep customers than to find new ones.
