Training Course Outline – Complaint Handling Training Course
A happy customer may tell three people about their experience with you but an unhappy one could share their problems with up to ten. That’s the kind of word-of-mouth that you have to get right.
Dealing with complaints effectively can build a good relationship with your customers, save money by avoiding their escalation, and earn repeat business. But many people drift into the role without any specific complaint handling training.
Most companies receive and reply to complaints by telephone, email and letter, and increasingly these days, by social media. If it’s your job to respond to them, you can be your organisation’s most valuable ambassador. You need to stay motivated and to be confident that you are dealing with customers as effectively and positively as possible. Training in best practice and seeing what works will build that confidence: you can be sure you are using tried and tested techniques.

“I have taken so much from this training. I came to the training fairly confident in my writing skills and it has raised some development areas for me which were explained extremely well.
