Cold Calling Made Simple

The prospect you are calling is not waiting for your call, so your call has to be enticing and well planned for them to listen to you. This course takes you through the formula for success.

Delivering Excellent Customer Service

Many customers stop buying because of an ‘attitude of indifference shown to them by one or more person representing the supplier’ – this course shows how to correct this face to face, by telephone & by email.

Professional Telephone Techniques

The caller cannot see you – they only hear you – this course will show you how to use the VAL factor (voice, attitude & listening) to gain their attention and make them feel important.

Reception Skills

The receptionist is often the first impression a potential customer, a supplier, a candidate for work, gets of your company. This course makes sure it is a good and lasting impression.

It’s the Little things that Count

I’m a huge advocate of Good Customer Service – I train it all the time and I’m always on the look out for new ideas, so when I experience something new, I like to see if Benchmark can use it. I recently bought some stunning pearl earrings from The House of Briar (on...
