the art of giving great service.
If you've never heard of Zingerman's just start Googling their name. They are a 35 year old business comprised of a community of businesses that grossed about $64 million in sales last year. 9 of their 10 business are retail based and 8 of them are a brick and mortar store. None of them are tech based. Just good old fashion hardworking businesses. Needless to say they know a thing or two about retail and customer service. One of the business that grew from their success was ZingTrain and, as the name suggests, they train other businesses on their successes.
In this session ZingTrain will be teaching you The Art of Giving Great Service. Some of the best businesses in the world have come to ZingTrain to learn about and adopt (or adapt) Zingerman’s approach to customer service. Normally their training costs a couple hundred dollars so be sure to take advantage of your chance to learn from them at a fraction of the price.
