Give your customer service skills a workout.                                

With more than 30 years’ experience working in, managing and training customer service across Australia, LTS Director, Author and Service Excellence Coach Cate Schreck knows that customer service providers in all industries face 3 big challenges:

  1. Remaining professional with every customer all day, every day.

  2. Balancing the demands of customers and the routine tasks of their role.

  3. Handling the tough stuff - disagreements, peak periods and difficult customers.

Customer service providers today need to be focused, confident, flexible, self aware and thick skinned but most of all, they need to have excellent people skills. With this is mind and in response to the demand for a unique solution to these challenges, Lightbulb Training Solutions is proud to offer Customer Service Boot Camps in Geelong, Ballarat, Melbourne and Regional Victoria. (We will consider interstate bookings)

What is Customer Service Boot Camp?

Customer Service Boot Camp gives attendees the opportunity to brush up on their people skills and learn the most effective ways to interact with all types of customers  - the good, the complicated and the difficult. It’s fun but not silly, it’s relaxed but not boring and it’s packed full of the skills and knowledge attendees need to become and remain Customer Service Professionals.

What happens at Boot Camp?

First of all, there is no need to stress about being asked to stand up and complete intensive and sweat-inducing activities. It’s not that kind of boot camp. Customer Service Boot Camp is about sharpening people skills and provides an opportunity to air frustrations and learn what it takes to become and remain a Customer Service Professional. We do all of this in a relaxed atmosphere with lots of practical and achievable actions attendees can immediately implement back at work. And one more thing....there are NO ROLE PLAYS.
