In The Conference on Customer Service, you'll learn...

  • The secrets to keeping your cool when customers get hot
  • Meeting the unique challenges of customer service management
  • Hidden gold: How to turn complaints into profits
  • What CSRs really need to stay motivated and productive
  • And much more

What is it that customers really want? Quick response? Instant information? Friendly dialog? All the above, and more! When customers are pleased, they’re likely to spend about 10% more on your product or service plus call again. But if they think they haven’t been treated right, they’ll tell everyone who’ll listen about their bad experience. In this conference—for customer service reps and customer service managers and supervisors—you’ll learn hundreds of techniques and tips for effectively and successfully dealing with customers.

Design your day to meet your unique needs. We’ve packed a lot of information into just one day … so feel free to move in and out of these two tracks and 10 dynamic sessions. It’s your conference—don’t miss a thing!
