More on this workshop:

Efficiency is doing things right; effectiveness is doing the right things. ~ Peter Drucker

At the frontline, we need to do both!

In Frontline II (Advanced) training we focus mainly on the organisational and office aspect of the receptionist position.

A highly competent receptionist will be supremely organised as her competencies rely on her having information at her fingertips and considering the wide range of knowledge that is necessary for her to impart to her clients and colleagues, knowing how and where to access the knowledge is important.

In this workshop we concentrate on the setting of systems and procedures, smooth organisation of the receptionist office and the finer points of reception excellence.

The duration of this seminar is 1 day(s).
