Why people choose our customer service training

Totally bespoke training

All our customer service training programmes are bespoke which means we’ll build the course to fit the exact needs and skill gaps of your teams. We’d generally start with a co-design session where we can build the course content with you and hopefully get to meet the teams too.

We’ll include examples and situations that are directly relevant to your teams so the training is practical and immediately implementable. From our experience this means teams can walk out of our training session and begin using what they’ve learnt straight away.

Run by practitioners

We feel it’s important that our trainers also have an extensive background in what they’re training and are actively involved in live projects. That’s why we use our consultants to deliver training to customer service teams. What we teach is up-to-date insight and approaches we’re learning on projects we’re engaged in.

Our consultants all have backgrounds in customer experience and customer care. Working on live projects as well as training. I can give you more info on specific trainers if you can share a little more about your target audience.

Live review clinics

Because we use specialists we’re also able to offer live “clinics” where the trainer and team can look at real-life examples and work on them together to improve and refine what they’re writing.

We’ve found this approach to be immensely useful as it gives everyone the chance to jointly build better responses and learn while they’re doing it. This can also be cross-channel – we do it across print mail, email, live chat and even social if needed.
