The ultimate "front line" of customer service is the letters customers receive -whether these letters are simply giving information, or responding to questions or complaints.

When customers receive a letter, they are left with an impression of the writer and the organization. That impression can be lasting and far-reaching because letters are often saved and shown to others. 

Learn the techniques for writing letters that present a customer focus, even when dealing with difficult issues.

This workshop focuses on:

  • understanding and reflecting the customer's perspective
  • structuring logical, coherent information that will be meaningful to the reader
  • creating goodwill by using appropriate language and tone
  • dealing with sensitive issues
  • choosing words that show the readers they have been listened to and understood
  • formatting letters to make a connection with the customer
