    Standing out from the crowd with customer service WiseUp2 

    Course details:  In this short workshop we’ll explore what good customer service is and how you can take an ordinary experience and make it extraordinary with a few simple tweaks and changes. This workshop will enable you to start to build a customer centric strategy to your business, ensuring that the customer is at the heart of everything you do;

    ·        Define the term “customer service”

    ·        Define what ordinary is and the role that it has to play in your business

    ·        Agree what Extraordinary means, perhaps being brave, thoughtful and imaginative, delivering the unexpected, delivering something unique for the customer

    ·        Understand that we need to continually challenge what we do for our customers.

    ·        We can’t afford to sit back! Our competitors are coming!

    ·        The final element of this workshop provides an opportunity for each delegate to focus on their business and develop ideas to take their own customer experience from ordinary to extraordinary.

        What will I get out of it?

        This workshop provides you with an opportunity to reflect on the customer experience that your business currently offers and explores the concept of creating Extraordinary customer experiences. Experiences that will get your customers coming back for more.

          Who is it for:  Any business that has customers and wants to put them at the heart of what they do
