2 Day course

Understanding customer needs and wants, delivering on time, charging a fair price and a quality product or service are the key drivers of a successful business. Consumer research shows that consumers rarely buy on lowest cost alone; they also want the service or product when promised, at the right quality, with a clear indication that the product / service will be backed-up by a guarantee that the business will fix any problems or issues promptly if the product / service doesn’t perform to their expectations.

This two day workshop shows you the steps you need to take to run a successful customer facing and quality driven business. This course is directed toward Customer Service Excellence Professionals, those individuals who are custodians of the organisations’ customer service excellence and quality standards.
