Building Amazing Customer Relations
You know what good customer service feels like when it happens, but do you know how to plan for it? Come hear a representative from the Better Business Bureau of MN and ND discuss a research report entitled the 5 Gestures of Trust and how it can help you create positive relationships with your customers as well as provide a framework for evaluating complaints and creating better policies. We will practice examining real complaints through this lens and you will hear about the BBB’s complaint handling process as well. This is an interactive presentation that will allow you to put your new knowledge into practice right away.
