Powerful Telephone Skills
That will increase customer retention and boost your profits

The most common method of communication in any company is the telephone. A mistake often made by companies is to allow members of staff to use it without essential training.

Many people think ‘How hard is it to use a telephone?’, and the answer is ‘It isn’t hard at all’. What’s hard is projecting the right image. The first telephone call made to a customer allows them to form an impression of the whole organisation, which is why it is imperative that staff who use the telephone are able to do so in the best way possible, sounding professional, friendly and competent at all times!

We all know that when we meet someone for the first time, we instantly decide whether we like them or not. Customers do the same. How they are handled in their call to you will help them decide if they want to use you as a supplier or not. First impressions count!

This course will teach delegates to project the right image, handle difficult calls and be confident when using the telephone.

Summary of Programme:

  • Defining roles and purposes
  • Skills for professional telephone users
    • Projecting and maintaining the right image
    • Qualities for success
