    Telephone Skills & Etiquette Course: Introduction

    Try this – call five companies at the number listed as the main number. The receptionist or switchboard operator will answer, this is if a machine doesn’t answer. Of the five companies, see how many receptionists answer and speak clearly – identifying themselves and their company and asking you for the reason of your call. Sadly, you probably won’t understand four of them. Telephone skills are largely overlooked – because who can’t answer a telephone? Yet, this is the voice of the company. Sales, marketing, clients all depend on the voice of the company being clear and professional. Our course in telephone etiquette will give participants the tools to sound professional, courteous and efficient.
