Setting the Tone
Often the first person that a client, customer or visitor interacts with when making contact with an organisation, you set the stage for how customers view their experience.
About the course
Receptionists not only manage external customers, they also play a key role in their interactions with internal customers and as such the role is vital to a successful and smooth running organisation.
On this course, you will learn more about the typical roles & responsibilities of a Receptionist, what skills you need to have (or to improve on) to excel in your role, as well as getting practical advice on what you need to know and what you need to have to be effective in your role.
You will also practice techniques to promote positive language, action words and empathy statements to improve customer relations and promote a positive image for your organisation.
Gave me so many tools to help with everyday work life, simple little things that can have a big impact.
Relevant, informative, motivating and easy to understand.
