Customer Service Training

Successful organisations recognise that, to maintain strong customer relationships and high customer satisfaction levels, all staff must take responsibility for the crucial part they play in delivering a final product or service. They recognise that if you’re not interacting with a customer directly, then you’re supporting someone who is. If you don’t provide that person - for example, a colleague, supplier or partner - with good service, then the customer ultimately suffers.



Customer Service Essentials is an in house, half to one-day customer service training course focussing on how to deliver excellent customer service, no matter what job you do or who your customers are. It covers fundamental techniques for dealing with different people, essential communication skills for building rapport and enhancing relationships, as well as how to handle difficult situations and angry customer effectively and professionally.

Currently, our professional trainers will travel to any business within 2 hours of Sydney (ie. between Newcastle and Wollongong). However, we will consider interstate training courses - please contact us to discuss your needs.
