Receptionist and Front Line
Receptionist and Front Line Training
Several phone lines are ringing, lights on the phone are blinking, coworkers are asking questions, and here comes a customer or client. How does the person manning the front desk of an office or business handle several people simultaneously with professionalism and poise? This fast-paced course is specifically designed to answer this and other important questions for those who work as an organization’s first-impression representative at the front desk. In addition to learning the elements of effective verbal and visual communication, participants will find out how to expertly satisfy even the most demanding, difficult people without jeopardizing their health or safety.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
The goal of our receptionist training course is to develop receptionists into high level company representatives. The receptionist is the face of any business. The first voice customers hear over the phone and the first face they see when walking into a business.
