Over the years the traditional call centre has evolved from primarily being a ‘cost centre’ to now being a major revenue stream for many businesses. Contact centres typically handle sales calls and activities through inbound calls, online sales, emails, live chat or the more traditional outbound/telemarketing.

So whilst the functions may have changed, for many contact centres, the training that underpins the skills of the frontline agents hasn’t evolved beyond basic customer service skills.

Our call centre sales training courses are designed to empower your frontline employees with proven contact centre specific sales methodologies that will improve your sales results in any industry and across any product or service.

Online call centre sales training courses

So whether it's direct sales or making the most of cross-selling or upselling opportunities, our call centre sales training courses will teach your contact centre agents skills that will deliver improved sales performance.

Types of call centre sales training courses

There are a number of different types of call centre sales training courses available with the main difference between inbound and outbound sales as the skills required are very different.

With inbound sales, customers are typically already interested in a purchase or it may require cross-selling, upselling etc.

Outbound sales skills in a contact centre can require a completely different skill set that amongst the sales skills, can also involve resilience, objection handling and so on.

Even within outbound calling, there are different skills that can be required with cold calling (no relationship with the customer) requiring a very different skillset to hot calls (where the customer has requested someone to contact them).

Most of our call centre sales training courses will involve plenty of role-plays and practice using generic products and services or to use your own examples, refer to our private training options below.

Public or Private?

All of our contact centre sales training courses can be delivered publicly (with other businesses) or privately (just for your business). We've explained some of the differences below.

Public Courses

Our publicly available contact centre sales courses enable you to enrol as few as one employee making them a cost-effective way of upskilling your 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 cost benefits of training larger groups of agents just for 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 generic ones we use in our public courses.

Review of Contact Centre Management Fundamentals (March 2022)

Excellent course with a well thought and usefull material that can be put into practice immediately . Definitely will help to solve a lot of common challenges any CCM experiences. Many CCMs get their knowledge through experience and passed from their leaders, however this course certain helps to complete the knowledge gaps and also challenge some of the way you were taught. Thanks to Dan and Marcus .

Review of Inbound Sales Phone Training (Private Course)

The training provided manages to take complex sales strategies and make them easy to understand and implement 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.

Review of Inbound Sales Phone Training (Private Course)

Hi Simon, hope you are doing fine. I have moved out of and have since joined a new organisation but I wanted to tell you that the learning and insights from your sales training sessions are still really helping me in my day-to-day life. Also, I can actually implement the learnings here as well in my new role. I can not thank you enough for this!

Review of Inbound Sales Phone Training (Private Course)

I feel that we are, as a business, we are in a better position than we were “BS” (Before Simon). Staff have a great foundation in appreciating the value and art of a buying process and sales conversation.
Thanks for your guiding hand and sharing your passion for the member experience with us. I for one, and I know many more, really do see the value in your process.

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

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!

I highly recommend CX Skills to assist with your training needs.

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.
