Receptionist Training Course

A great receptionist is much more than picking up the phone or greeting customers, although these are extremely important parts of the job. You are likely to be the first point of contact for most people who do business with the organisation, which means that you are the face of the company. Your appearance and your knowledge reflect on the entire company. You are largely responsible for how the company is perceived by its existing and potential customers.

Receptionists set the stage for how customers view their experience with the company and their role is vital to a successful, smooth running organisation. In order to create a good first impression and to make sure you represent your company in a professional manner, it is crucial that you’re aware of the most important customer service principles and key interpersonal skills essential for success.
