In a partnership with N-Gaged Training and delivery partners, we are aiming to enhance Bristol’s visitor welcome by delivering customer service excellence training to 2,500 individuals city-wide working in tourism, hospitality, leisure and transport.
By training the target of 2,500 individuals, Bristol will become recognised as a World Host destination.
The WorldHost ‘Principles of Customer Service’ course takes place over one day and can be delivered as either an in-house course for groups of 15 + taking place in your own venue or by booking on to one of the open training days for individuals or smaller groups organised in Bristol during 2016:
The cost of training is £75 per person.
If 50% or more of your customer facing staff complete the training, you can receive wider recognition as a designated WorldHost Recognised Business
