Why solving the problem isn’t enough – A Support Workshop

The workshop

When working in customer service, you’re supposed to always give the (technically) correct answer. While working in customer service for a Dutch internet provider I learned that the right answer often isn’t enough. This has influenced every conversation I’ve had since.

In this session, I’ll share the insights my team lead gave me, and help you use them.
