Today, the use of Live Chat conversations is growing amongst the Contact Centre, Digital Service and Customer Service industry as customers continue to use different channels to engage with your business using the most convenient communication channels for them.

Unlike voice/phone conversations, which have their own set of skill requirements, there are some unique considerations for handling customers who choose to use Live Chat to contact your organisation.

As this form of contact is in writing, most organisations are highly sensitive about protecting their brand and image and desire to improve their employees’ overall courtesy and writing skills.

This August 2024 Live Chat Customer Service training course is designed to assist frontline employees who handle live chat interactions with customers, whether they are contact centre agents, customer service employees, etc.

We address the role of Live Chat in the Customer Experience, the five most important mistakes to avoid, the use and abuse of pre-scripted functionality and the overall 4-Step structure that delivers best-practice live chat customer interactions.

The August 2024 Live Chat course for customer service is facilitated by global expert Daniel Ord and is delivered over two x four-hour online sessions.

August 2024 Live Chat Customer Service Course Fast Facts:

  • 8 Hours of live facilitated online/virtual learning (2 x 4-hour sessions).
  • Designed for employees handling live chat conversations for sales or service.
  • The course is designed and facilitated by global Contact Centre & Customer Experience expert Daniel Ord.

8 hours of live training across two half-days (2 x 4-hour sessions)

The August 2024 Live Chat Customer Service training course for frontline employees is split into three great modules across two half-day workshops (~4-hours each workshop).

Workshop 1

Module 1: Expectations, Alignment and Customer Access

Whilst we spend the bulk of this course teaching employees how to have great live chat conversations, it always helps to have a big picture of what you want to achieve.

A purpose, a mission – a vision.  Call it what you will.

To help Frontline Team Members succeed in the live chat channel, we look at the different ways organisations use the channel – and what really drives Customer Satisfaction with Live Chat.

  • Service, Sales or Technical Support?
  • How do Customers use Live Chat?
  • Defining Customer expectations for the Live Chat channel.
  • Key Drivers of Customer Satisfaction with ‘On-line’ Services.
  • Customer Access Strategy for Live Chat.

Module 2. Hygiene Factors for Live Chat

Hygiene factors are the basics.  Getting the basics right is expected.  But getting the basics wrong is all too easy sometimes.

In this section, we cover what those basics are and how to make sure they stay in tip-top shape.

  • Service Level and Response Time (so employees understand why they matter).
  • The use/abuse of pre-scripted “functions” (Where they came from – where they will go – it’s a journey!).
  • Understanding conversational direction change.

Workshop 2

Module 3. The Four-Step Process for Managing Live Chat Conversations 

Now comes the fun part! This is where we spend most of our time on this course – learning how to have great conversations on Live Chat.

Our 4-part structure, along with practical tips at each step of the way, makes it possible.

Employees will learn the following:

  • Greet, Listen and Control KPIs and behaviours.
  • How to Present a Problem-Solving Solution.
  • How to Present a Product & Service Solution.
  • How to Present an Order Taker Solution.
  • How to transfer the chat to a different channel.

Daniel's expertise and passion for the subject matter truly shine through in his teaching style, making it a transformative experience for all participants.From the moment the workshop began, Daniel's enthusiasm was infectious. He has an exceptional ability to convey complex concepts in an understandable and relatable way. I left the workshop with a profound understanding of how to navigate challenging scenarios, both in my professional and personal life.What truly sets Daniel apart is his commitment to engagement. Throughout the session, he encouraged active participation and created an inclusive atmosphere where questions and discussions were not just welcome but encouraged. It's evident that he genuinely cares about each participant's learning journey.The real-world examples and practical strategies shared during the workshop were invaluable. Daniel's ability to connect theory to practical application made the content highly relevant and actionable.The workshop was impeccably organized, and Daniel's presentation skills were top-notch. He kept the audience engaged and motivated throughout, making the entire experience enjoyable and enlightening.In conclusion, I cannot recommend Daniel Ord's workshops enough. If you're looking to enhance your skills in managing difficult situations, he is the go-to expert. Thank you, Daniel, for an enriching and eye-opening workshop. I eagerly look forward to attending more of your sessions in the future.If you're considering attending one of Daniel's workshops, don't hesitate – you won't be disappointed!

Especially theses days with so much angst in the world with price increases, staff shortages, stock shortages etc! Thanks again for taking the time to leave a review 🙂
Great Contact Centre Management course. The trainer, Daniel well explained how contact centres works and this is exactly what I needed for my role. It was also great to learn practices and experiences from other trainees as well. Daniel, thank you for the wonderful training. I really enjoyed the 4 days!
Response from the owner: Thanks Kyoko, Contact Centre Management really is a skill that can be learnt with some fundamentals that apply to all centres. Good luck with your contact centre management journey, it's a great job when armed with the right skills which you've now got!

Training with CX Skills is always engaging and worth every cent. The team are helpful and the lessons are practical and easy to translate into the workplace.
Response from the owner: Thanks Sheree for taking the time to leave us a review and glad you enjoyed the course!
Attended the Introduction to Contact Centre Management course – found it extremely informative and left with a much better understanding of the world I'm about to step into! The course was well structured and Justin was a great teacher. His wealth of knowledge (and passion) absolutely shone through. Am keen to learn more!
Response from the owner: Thanks Keira, was great to meet you on the course and I wish you all the best with the new adventure and hearing about your progress! - Justin
I did the management of contact centres four day workshop, it was fantastic! The facilitator was really engaging and explained everything from WFM to forecasting in a easy to understand manner. Highly recommend to anyone working in a contact centre environment!
Response from the owner: Awesome Jamie, thanks for taking the time to leave a review. Daniel is certainly very knowledgeable and passionate about contact centres so thrilled to hear you got a lot out of the course. We really do believe if there was one course any call centre Team Leader or Manager should attend in their career this would be it!
I had a fantastic learning experience with the half day Journey Mapping course. Shane was our trainer and explained things thoroughly, used great practical examples and helped through the exercise when needed. He was very knowledgeable and engaging. The group size was not too big so everyone was able to contribute online. I feel confident to 'give a journey map a go' now, thank you. Helen
Response from the owner: Thanks Helen, so great to hear. Journey Maps can often feel a bit daunting but when they are explained well and supported with some great examples it does give people the confidence they need to get cracking!
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.
Response from the owner: Thanks Jim for taking the time to provide a wonderful review. It was a pleasure having you and the team on the course. You've got a great team behind you so I look forward to hearing about your successes in the future as you roll out some of the new initiatives. - Justin
Justin offers such a wealth of knowledge and skills that can be applied to leaders in any business. Thank you Justin!
Response from the owner: Thanks Sam, was great to meet you on the Introduction to Contact Centre Managers course! Looking forward to staying connected and hearing about future successes with your career.
Response from the owner: Thanks Dirk for attending the Introduction to Contact Centre Managers course. Good luck with your new business venture!
We have done a few training courses now through Justin and the CX Group.In these sessions the facilitator has been Dan Ord and Dans knowledge of the Contact Centre world is second to none. This was great for us as we attended as a team to ensure that the training that we received was able to be applied across my entire management team and also allowed me to drive the right outcomes based on Dan, Marcus and Justins advice and guidance.The best thing about this is that this was not one of those courses that you attend and then nothing more is said or done with this. . . Dan/Justin offer their email address so if you come up with additional questions later that you want guidance on you can ask and they are more than willing to assist.Dan, Marcus and Justin thanks for facilitating this training and we will sure be intouch for other training courses that we would like to run through the CX Group.Bec Goss
Response from the owner: Wow, thanks Bec! It's been great to spend some time with the Digicall Assist team and it's been our pleasure in helping you to continue your focus on upping the game for your customers!
This course is absolutely fundamental to anyone dealing with customer experience, the customer journey and also customer service departments. The course is packed with real life examples illustrating the 6 pillars of customer experience! Dan shares all his knowledge and expertise freely and with great love and enthusiasm for the subject matter!
Response from the owner: Thanks Marianne, was lovely to have your input and experience in the group. Dan is certainly very passionate about CX (and also with contact centres like you!) and I think you're spot on, the examples Daniel uses really does bring the course to life and make the learnings stick!
The CX Management Fundamentals course was exceptional, a balanced blend of best in-class examples and theory . Daniel was the utmost professional, sharing his wealth of knowledge in customer experience and contact centre management. Content was relevant and covered an array of business examples. A course that exemplifies two-way participation (no death by PowerPoint). The diverse group of attendees had the opportunity to share their experiences and knowledge, which was priceless. I highly recommend this course for anyone in the customer experience realm, even beginners like me.
Response from the owner: Thanks Rachael for your lovely review and for your input throughout the course. You're right, the combination of Daniel's training and learning from others is a great way to learn and build your network - you've now got some new CX friends from the UK, Malaysia, Germany, Budapest and the USA!
I learnt a lot about CX and the course gave me clarity on the 6 main competencies. The training was fun, enjoyable, I can recommend to anyone who is passionate about the "Customer" subject. Daniel is very knowledgeable and experienced, he used real life business examples to understand both the strategic and tactical elements of CX. He also involved us which generated even more credibility.
Response from the owner: Thanks Eva for your review and recommendation! We are thrilled you enjoyed the class (even though the time zones made it a bit more challenging for you in Budapest) and we are here to help when you take the next step and sit for the CCXP exam 🙂
I could not recommend this Company highly enough, I have now done two courses with the Fantastic Dan & Marcus and have taken so much away. I want to thank everybody involved with CX Skills.
Response from the owner: Thanks Rory, appreciate you taking the time to send us in a review!
Game-changing training and insight. Highly recommend CX Skills training program.
Response from the owner: Thanks so much Lee, your marketing insights also added a lot of value to the group and wish you all the best in implementing your new Quality program into the contact centre.
An absolutely fun and engaging learning session presented by Daniel. Would definitely recommend.
Response from the owner: Thanks Vanessa, so glad you could join us on the How to Design a QA program for contact centres and best of luck with the implementation!
Another great course put together by Justin presented by their partners at Omnitouch, Daniel and Marcus.The "How to Design a Quality Assurance Program for Contact Centres" was extremely fitting for our organisation as we transition to a new telephony system.The course was not one of those courses where they give you the answer and a few templates sending you on your way. Daniel and Marcus take you through why an appropriate framework should take into consideration the Organisations, Mission Statement, Values and Customer Service Charter.As the session was run via Zoom, it enabled and encouraged networking opportunities not only across Australia but also with International attendees. This was a fantastic benefit as it allowed us to draw on each others lived experiences.I really encourage you all to check out the courses and information that CX Skills has to offer as they are the best place to not only continue but to also start your learning and development!
Response from the owner: Thanks Adrian, really appreciate your detailed review. Having already completed our Contact Centre Management Fundamentals course a couple of months ago it was great to have you back for this course! The QA course is certainly one of our favourites as having the right framework in place really drives everything you do in your contact centre. And as you have pointed out, just handing out a scorecard and saying 'use this' rarely works. Defining what quality is to your business is the key, and then having the right frameworks in place to ensure you drive it delivers sustainable results so we look forward to hearing your progress as you implement your program!
Justin and the team at CX Skills have gone over and above the call of duty to deliver great Customer Service training to our entire Service Centre team. The training has been high quality, delivered remotely, and Justin has been extremely flexible with necessary changes to attendees due to operational requirements. I highly recommend CX Skills to assist with your training needs.
Response from the owner: Thanks Monica for the wonderful review. It's been a pleasure working with yourself, Todd and all of your wonderful staff in delivering our Managing Difficult Customers course to your entire team.
The training provided manages to take complex sales strategies and make them easy to understand and implicate in a sales call. It provides a structure that isn’t stifled by wordy scripts and pitches, and guides consultants towards a successful outcome for both the customer and consultant.This training took efficient, tried and tested sales concepts and expand on them to not only generate higher conversion, but a more positive customer experience.Aside from the training, which was amazing, Simon - the trainer - was a pleasure to work with. He was attentive and showed a real passion and desire to enhance the trainee’s sales expertise.I would recommend CX Group to anyone who will listen!
Response from the owner: Thanks Chris for your great review and so pleased you enjoyed the Inbound Sales Professional course with Simon. And we agree, once you've learnt the structure it makes sales a much more effective and enjoyable process!
I recently attended the Contact Centre Management Fundamentals course and found it extremely useful and relevant. Daniel was extremely knowledgeable on all topics and handled questions with ease. He was a great trainer and i found the session had a great mix to suit all learning styles. I have taken so much from this course, the networking opportunities as well as the CX website and associated resources. I highly recommend attending if you are looking to better understand contact centre management regardless of what level you work at.
Response from the owner: Thanks Nicole for your wonderful review! It was great to meet you on the course and I look forward to hearing about your future successes.
Thank you team-It has certainly changed the whole perspective on how I used to see and handle the issues not just at the workplace but also in day to day life. Very practical and informative course content delivered in a very professional way. I truely recomend everyone out there to use this platform.
Response from the owner: Thank you Badri. So great to hear you loved the Managing Difficult Customers course and that the learnings have helped you in both your work and personal life!
Justin created a great call centre fundamentals program for our organisation, based on the skill gaps needed filling. Although it was at the height of the Melbourne lockdown the session was still interactive, interesting and achieved the desired result.
Response from the owner: Thanks Sarsha, was great to meet you and the team and I wish you all the best on your customer experience and call centre journey!
Really enjoyed course on handling difficult customers. I came away with a number of tools that I can use not only with customers, but also day to day life.
Response from the owner: Thanks Katherine, we loved having you on the course and thanks for sharing some of your interesting stories and examples!
Response from the owner: Thanks Linda, great to have you in our course!
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 and Justin for training and support.
Response from the owner: Thanks Kaylee, it was a pleasure to spend some time with the team and I'm sure with that level of enthusiasm and passion your contact centre will be in good hands for the future!
