Beyond Customer Service

Course Aim & Introduction

A primary purpose of any business is to create and keep customers! Customer acquisition and retention evolve far beyond customer service - in fact, customer "service" has reached commodity status. You can get "service" just about anywhere you go. So how do you stand out from the crowd?

To be truly unbeatable in the customer service arena, the best companies today compete - and win - based on the rich, memorable experience they consistently provide their customers. When was the last time you considered the value of your customers' experience when working with you or your company? How do they really feel when they leave your office? Alive and invigorated, or dull and de-motivated?

This seminar takes customer service to a higher level by emphasising practical, real-world strategies for staging a reliably unbeatable experience - one that will have your customers consistently talking favourably about your organisation. The instructor will share provocative insights about how to design and execute a compelling customer experience that will create distance between you and your competition.
