One Moment Please – Receiving Customers and Tenants

There are many workshops on telephone and receptionist skills, but none quite like this one. Thus workshop gets to the very heart of taking enquiries, problems and complaints from customers over the telephone or at reception. Often the first greeting sets the tone for the whole tenant / customer experience, and these first impressions can be hard to change.

This one day workshop examines in a very hands-on and practical way the skills of listening to customers, often at the first stage of an inquiry, problem solving, or complaint process.

By the end of the workshop, participants will have a firmer footing in the skills of reception and telephone relations with customers/tenants.

What you will learn

Using scenarios drawn from real experience combined with current best practice ideas and approaches, the workshop focuses on:
The first impressions on both sides of a reception or telephone encounter
