Responding to enquiries by phone or email, we are deprived of almost all the clues we take for granted when dealing with people face-to-face. With no eye contact, facial expression or body language - and frequently no tone of voice either - it's vital to manage communications with the enquirer effectively. The risk of misunderstanding or offence is high; customers tend to be more impatient, and it's very easy for them to take their query elsewhere.
The workshop will cover:
This is course is for:
* information staff who deal with enquiries by phone, email or text
* managers who operate or are developing a remote enquiry service
* anyone who needs to understand the challenges of dealing with enquiries when the enquirer is not present.
