This one-day workshop focuses on essential skills for front desk staff, including professional image, communication, and handling customer inquiries.


When we first step into an office or an organization, we would love to be greeted with a smile and be attended to immediately. This first impression from the staff who reached out to us leaves a good memory.

Whether you are at the front desk or working with the internal customers, colleagues at your workplace, it is important to be professional at all times.

When front desk/office staff need to attend to walk in customers and also answer incoming telephone calls, what is the protocol in these circumstances?  Should the employee pick up the call first or to attend to the client first?
