What's it all about?

The workshop is aimed at anyone who has day to day customer contact over the trade counter. We all know that first impressions count but how often do we evaluate the on-going impression we make every time we come into contact with customers. Dealing face to face over the trade counter is often one of the most underutilised sales resources available to a branch centre.

 The module begins by assessing the importance of individual behaviour asking the delegates to critically look at the image they portray through the eyes of a customer. They will learn how the impact they make and questions they ask can lead directly to improved sales and margin.

 Time is then spent focusing on not just the personnel impact but also the image, layout and atmosphere of the trade counter with real emphasis on delegates taking true responsibility for their working environment. The module concludes with each delegate carrying out a personal service rating of their own performance and preparing an action plan that they can discuss and implement with their Branch Manager back in the business
