Management gurus talk about the need to `delight' customers, meaning to exceed their expectations in a way that is surprising and pleasing. This, however, is easier said than done; attempts to offer new and unusual service experiences can be expensive, time-consuming and can often backfire. This two-day programme is designed to get behind the hype to look at the practicalities of creating satisfying service experiences. You will learn techniques for managing and developing the many elements that contribute to a service experience. You will also explore different ways of pursuing that elusive goal of `the delighted' customer.
