The Professional Voice over the Phone Workshop, is a practical and informative workshop, that offers the delegate personal attention. It is a proven methodology that has been successfully implemented in numerous companies in South Africa, Namibia and Botswana. We limit the numbers on the workshops to fifteen due to the highly practical nature of the workshop, and the personal attention given to the individuals.

The workshop is facilitated by Marc Andrew, who has over twelve years on the telephone, establishing call centres, training call centre staff both in and out bound, and understanding the pressures that people experience on the telephone, both locally and internationally.

In house workshops are available for clients wanting to train six or more delegates. This format is more cost effective and the training more specific to the client.
