Very helpful course. Useful as I am new to the role so I now have useful strategies to use in difficult situations

I took part in the outstanding front desk training today. The training delivered was amazing and helped to educate me further on delivering the correct customer service.

Great course, picked up some very useful tips that I will implement.

Fab course, very clear and some very good points to work with in the real world. I would definitely recommend it!
