Good Morning!

Our customer support team is looking to bring in a guest speaker/trainer to speak to our customer support team to discuss Phone Support strategies. In particular we would like to have someone come in and offer some perspective on why phone support is a value add to the customer experience, how to add value during your convo, how to be comfortable on the phone, how to politely end long winded/ranting/rude customer convos. etc.

If anyone know or has worked with any good speakers would appreciate your recommendations!

    Hi @Maxine Karlinsky-- I know @Anita Toth has put together a great educational series around handling difficult conversations and engaging customers appropriately, and she's a terrific speaker.  Also might check out @Daniel Hoesing as he provides a predictive index methodology to drive the most important projects with a keen eye toward customer support and service, and would likely be a fabulous resource for creating the momentum around the initiative.
