Customer Service - Delivering Above & Beyond

Programme Overview

Peter Drucker once famously quoted that "The purpose of a business is to create and keep a customer."

This means that we need to be providing outstanding customer serve at all times as you can be sure that if you are not, someone else is!

Until recently customer service was considered to be an expensive luxury. It was associated with only the most exclusive and expensive products and services.

Today, people should expect greater politeness and less pushiness from sales staff, they expect to be able to talk to someone when they have a problem, and not be kept waiting. There should be clear explanations with issues being dealt with quickly and courteously. This applies not only in shops, restaurants, and hotels, but anywhere where there is a customer/client relationship.

Customer service should be at the heart of all businesses and striving to provide the best service will go a long way. If you offer exceptional customer service, you are more likely to see repeat business from customer service. This is because receiving your products/services is not their whole journey. Consumers experience a lengthy process that starts from when they first hear about you. If you are renowned for great customer service, people are easier to forgive mishaps and will feel secure in returning to you.

This focused two day Customer Service programme is ideal for companies and individuals to understand both the strategic and tactical sides of customer service. It will be of particular value to organisations who wish to develop a culture of customer service in their organisation, department, or team. The course will not only teach you how to smile or be polite to people, but it will go beyond the obvious and explore what customer service truly means, and why so many organisations get it so wrong.
