Virtual Training Overview

There is a view that if we deliver excellent internal customer service, we are more than half-way to achieving the level of external customer service that we strive for. So often we are in danger of letting our internal customers down without thinking of the wider impact. ‘Looking at what we can do rather than what we can’t’, ‘Going the extra mile’, ‘Adding value’ etc. etc. are all great sayings but living up to them is a different matter.

This virtual training programme starts by identifying the principles of excellent customer service. From there it looks internally at what we as individuals, and as part of a team, can do to create a positive environment for customer service. There will always be customer complaints, however we can use them as a great way to gather feedback to improve. We do, of course need to handle them in an effective manner. The sessions also look at how we can deliver customer service in a virtual environment and in a remote working situation. This gives us an opportunity to use our initiative in this new situation to meet and exceed customer expectations.

The approach will be to run two 90-minute sessions with a gap of one week in between. The style of the sessions will be to be as interactive as possible, thought provoking and practical enabling you reflect, share best practice, and consider areas where you can enhance the customer service that you deliver. At the end of the sessions you will have the opportunity to identify three key actions/development areas that you would like to work with in order to transfer the learning into your own working environment.
