Customer Service – Beyond the Superficial.
Too often, organisations think of Customer Service as something that only the front line staff have to worry about! This powerful presentation by Steve Simpson shows that Customer Service means a great deal more than answering the telephone within three rings, and serving customers with a smile.
Creating a Culture of Service.

Perhaps more important however is the recently established fact that good service equates to improved profits. Great service pays, in more ways than we think.
