Customized training

Some facts. 96% of unhappy people never complain about discourtesy or poor service. Yet up to 91% of these people make a point of not doing business with those businesses ever again. Moreover, 13% of these people tell at least 20 other people about the discourtesy or poor service they encountered. A basic, yet high quality training takes seven days. Depending on your wishes, we will customize a training curriculum for you and for your staff. In case a training of seven days or more is required we will include a customized training workbook for free. This is a huge value. As far as we know, no other training institution offers its clients such a valued service. Of course we will hand out valuable and beautiful certificates to the participating staff members who complete the training. We will be pleased to discuss your wishes and our services in greater detail. Please contact us and let's get started.
