Your Training Needs

I can deliver training in the manners that are most accommodating to you.  These methods will include online tools, face-to-face meetings and other emerging training methods.  I am also available to do one-on-one training sessions as needed.

The training material I deliver depends on:

  1. General information or with consideration for where you are in your VOC journey. We have a number of “canned” presentations / topics (see below) that we can readily deliver, but if we are to integrate the topic with your specific company, we would want you to complete our CEM Self-Assessment, and then we can tailor things a bit more for you:
  2. Who is going to be in the room? We’ve done training for four different group types:
    1. VOC (Voice of Customer) Professionals
    2. C-Suite and Executives
    3. Managers
    4. Individual contributors.
