Customer Service Is the New Marketing
This quote by Derek Sivers resonates with you, and you dream of a future in which your company's service reputation precedes you — globally.
When you read your company's support emails or listen to a customer phone call, you want to feel proud.
You want to see your team answer all the customer's questions in one coherent, succinct email.
You want them to add a genuine personal touch so your customers feel special and cared for.
And you wish customers would self-serve more so your team was less stretched.
In a nutshell, you're looking for...
an outside view on what training you really need and what would be a waste of time & money;
help building a business case so you can get the budget you need for workshops, courses or coaching toolkits;
a clear path to better service quality — whether that's through improved responses, training your team to write better canned responses & self-service copy, or a revamped quality process;
consistently high customer satisfaction/NPS & low customer effort across the entire customer journey.
A Surgical Approach to Training Yields the Best Results
The best way to start is by booking a thorough Discovery session. This will help me analyse what your team needs so we can agree a detailed workshop agenda and measurable KPIs.
“Outstanding and extremely well received by all the agents and managers that attended…”
What’s included in Surgical Customer Care Training?
Email or chat conversation audit
I’ll do a deep dive on 3 full customer conversations from your team (under NDA or anonymised if you wish).
You’ll discover in full detail where templates and/or advisor behaviour are hurting the customer relationship, sales through service & first contact resolution.
Competitor mystery shop
I’ll send queries to your 2 main competitors to analyse how they respond.
You’ll get pro insights into their handling of the queries that you most want to improve — which can help you build your business case for training, copywriting, new tools and/or more people.
On-site Discovery Day
I’ll come to your customer care office to shadow advisors and meet with key stakeholders. (If you’re a remote company, I’ll join your Slack or book video chats with your team.)
Together, we’ll develop a shared understanding of what success looks like.
Research into your business insights & data
None of that BS “best practice”, “swipe and deploy” stuff that shoehorns your complex reality into lifeless cookie cutter approaches that rob your brand & setup of all life and power.
Instead, I'll put your customers' true needs and expectations at the heart of my work.
Depending on the problem we're solving, I'll also hit the libraries, contact specialist researchers & read through academic papers to find the answers we need.
A 1-hour Innovation Session
Together, we’ll look at the results of my Discovery & Research — and make an action plan to get your customer care quality from where it is now to where you'd like it to be.
Workshop Agenda & KPIs
I’ll summarise the results of our Innovation Session in one neat, easy-to-consume document (usually around 5-10 pages).
Once you’re happy with this plan, I’ll start creating your bespoke workshop.
Transparent project management
Secure file management in the cloud
A personal relationship that will never leave you wondering what the heck is going on
No cluttering your inbox
Training that sticks
Each workshop comes with a feedback survey, success measurement based on agreed KPIs, and an evaluation session 6-12 weeks after delivery.
Time and time again, 100% of participants would recommend the From Scratch workshop because it’s helpful and fun at the same time.
A full-day surgical workshop starts at €3,000 for a group of 12-35 people.
