Open Workshop: International Customer Service – One Size Does Not Fit All

International Customer Service – One Size Does Not Fit All

When providing international customer service, it is vital to understand that different cultures experience the same situation according to their own cultural values. A failure to appreciate these differences can lead to misunderstandings and a poor experience for both the customer and your business. Factors such as perceptions of time, how you phrase a question and a myriad of other cultural nuances play a vital role in how you are received by your customer - and these will be different for each market you enter.

Designed for all staff dealing with international customers and suppliers, this course will be facilitated by one of our senior consultants, Anna Shevchenko, and is based on over 20 years hands-on experience. It blends key international customer service principles with case studies, role play, group discussions and quizzes to enhance and review learning.
