Introduction

Emails, texts, instant messaging, social media…...

The list of digital communication methods grows each day. They offer speed and convenience. But it is hard to form a strong business relationship without real-time interaction.

Whilst face-to-face meetings are difficult to organise during the COVID-19 restrictions, the telephone remains a powerful tool to accelerate the creation of productive relationships and the delivery of great client service. Yet many - especially those in younger generations - avoid telephone calls or miss important opportunities during phone conversations.

This virtual classroom session provides the tools, techniques and confidence to turn the telephone into a valuable business and selling tool.
