A workshop at Georgia Southern University will show business owners and employees how to meet and exceed the needs of their customers.
‘Customer Service with Excellence” will be held on Thursday, Dec. 13, from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. in the Nessmith-Lane Continuing Education Building.
Led by Cynthia Watts, the program will be an interactive experience in which participants are actively engaged in their learning. They will learn how to assess different types of customers, and how to deal with difficult people and situations.
In addition, participants will learn what to say and how to say it in order to turn new customers into repeat customers. Other topics to be covered include anticipating the customer’s expectations and proper telephone etiquette.
