Customer Service Phone Essentials course (May 2023)
The May 2023 Customer Service Phone Essentials course is designed as a short-duration (3-hour) course perfect for new starters who need to learn the basics of good customer service or for existing employees who are a little stale and have never been taught the fundamentals.
The course goes beyond traditional customer service training tropes such as ‘always have a smile in your voice’ and ‘use the customer’s name 2 or 3 times in a call’.
This is a program that has been three decades in the making. It leverages the insights and assessment of more than 50,000 phone calls and a nearly 30-year career spent training and coaching phone customer service skills and is facilitated live by Simon Blair, Australia’s leading customer service phone training expert.
