Effective Client Communication

This workshop looks at the importance of communication and how to communicate appropriately and effectively in different situations. We explore verbal and non-verbal communication and think about why a customer may become unhappy with your service.

Why book this workshop?

So often it’s not what you say, its how you say it that can make a huge difference when providing a service to your client or customer.


You trust your staff to deliver your product or service in the most professional of ways, but sometimes its not so easy for a person to know or even understand the correct or most appropriate way to speak to different people. This workshop addresses this problem.
