Some information was more suited to an “inbound” contact centre and more customer service centric. Justin is very knowledgeable and delivered the course in an easy way to understand. Some key metric’s explained could most certainly be implemented for our business. Will definitely take some of his advice on board.

Great course for those starting or getting into call centre management

Most call centres have their own unique way of doing things which means progressing your career in one business can look very different to another. This course gives you the fundamentals of management in ALL call centres and a clear understanding of how it all comes together operationally.

The Introduction to Contact Centre Management is an excellent course for those looking to understand contact centres from a helicopter view and benchmark their operations. From the fundamental pillars to critical KPIs and performance metrics that underpin almost every contact centre globally, Justin is personable and professional and speaks with authority on a topic he knows intimately.

Justin created a great call centre fundamentals program for our organisation, based on the skill gaps that needed filling. Although it was at the height of the Melbourne lockdown, the session was still interactive, interesting and achieved the desired result.

Justin from CX responded promptly to my training enquiry. He heard what we wanted and we discussed best way to present this during Melbourne Lockdown. He conducted the introduction to contact centre leadership remotely with a small group. He weaved his contact centre experience with humour and activities that were appropriate and engaging. At the end, each person agreed that they learnt lots and were going to apply at least one thing back in their role. I would highly recommend CX Skills and Justin for training and support.
