Review of Customer Service Booster (Private course)

When we started our work with Simon we incorporated his Five Degrees model into our CX framework. This has helped us deliver improved service through via both our own staff and also those with our outsourced partners. Everyone has reaped the benefits from our improved Service Desk experience to Toyota employees that has come from our long-term partnership.
