The ever-changing world of customer service 

The customer service CX landscape is evolving faster than ever with new channels, new measurements, changing demographics, and improvements in technology all changing both customer and business expectations.

But perhaps the biggest change of all in recent times is, of course, COVID. With both employees and customers under more pressure than ever before, the importance of customer service and employee wellbeing has never been more critical.

Customer Service training courses in Australia

Yet despite all the advances in technology and society, some of the basic fundamentals in customer service haven’t changed -  good leadership, quality coaching, strong frameworks, a clear vision and mission and so on still underpinning every successful customer service operation.

Our customer service training courses have been designed by industry experts to cater for a wide range of skill levels and experiences to ensure the courses delivered are fit-for-purpose for the participants.

Customer Service is a very broad term so you may also be interested in these other related courses: Live Chat Customer Service, Email Customer Service, Managing Difficult Customers.

How your Employees benefit with Customer Service Training

Typically one of the main reasons businesses invest in customer service training is that it's going to deliver a better experience for your customers.

That, of course, makes perfect sense as we know delivering a great customer experience is good for business in lots of ways (see the section below) but there are also some other significant benefits for your business when you invest in your customer service employees:

  • Less stress - Not having the tools and skills to perform their role is one of the biggest causes of stress in the workplace for employees.
  • Happier workers are 12% more productive than neutral ones, while unhappier workers were 10% less productive.
  • Happy staff have fewer sick days to a factor of 10X a dissatisfied employee. And they’ll stay longer too.
  • Reduced turnover - It costs between 30-50 per cent of an annual salary (e.g. over $25,000 in Australia) to replace one frontline agent.

So not only do your customers and employees benefit from the investment in customer service training, there is a significant Return on Investment for your business as well.

Employee Benefits of investing in Customer Service Training Courses

Investing in your business success

The equation is pretty simple - a great customer experience results in a more loyal customer who spends more and stays longer. And employee engagement and retention is also significantly higher.

Take a look at some of these statistics:

  • A customer is 4 times more likely to purchase from a competitor if they are having an issue related to CX – not pricing or products.
  • 86% of consumers are likely to repurchase from a brand that offers what they deem as being “excellent customer experience.
  • 73% of buyers point to customer experience as an important factor in purchasing decisions
  • 84% of organisations working to improve CX report an increase in revenue.

So what are customers basing their customer experience on? For the majority of customers, the interaction with your frontline team is the moment of truth. Put simply, every single interaction your customer service employee handles can make the difference between business success or failure.

So why leave that to chance?

Customer Service Training Courses - Delivery Options

All of our customer service training courses can be delivered publicly (with attendees from multiple organisations) or privately (just for your business) either online or in-house (e.g. at your premises subject to COVID restrictions). We've explained some of the differences below.

Public Courses

Our publicly available courses enable you to enrol as few as one employee making them a cost-effective way of upskilling a small number of employees.

The public courses can also be a great way to interact and learn from others in either the same or different industries.

Each course has fixed times and dates making it easy to plan around shifts, holidays, induction periods etc.

Private Courses

Whilst the public courses can be a great way to interact with others and are perfect for small numbers, sometimes you need more flexibility with the dates and times or you’d like the benefits of training larger groups within your business.

Our private courses can deliver the same course with dates and times to suit you and we can also include custom-built role plays, simulations and call examples based on your business rather than the generic ones we use in our public courses.

Daniel was very engaging and knowledgeable regarding the subject matter. He made a complex matter easier to understand and in conjunction with the workbook really helped me internalise the lessons.

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!

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

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.

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

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
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.
