Bring Trainings to Your Community!
If you’re looking for training without the cost and time associated with travel, we are here to help! The League offers affordable on-site trainings and the training comes to you. We will identify a presenter that will address your community’s most urgent needs. Here is an example of one of our newest additions:
Customer Service Training
The function of any business, organization, association or government entity is to enhance the quality of life of those served. Names used to identify those you serve are patients, clients, customers, members, students, and tax payers or citizens. This Customer Service Seminar focuses on human relation skills. It is a motivational presentation that examines the various skills that impact the relationship with a customer and each other.
The League can put together most training topics as an on-site. All you need to do is ask! Please contact Katie Holda at 734-669-6352 or email@example.com.
