Research demonstrates that reputation is built and lost from the most recent customer experience.

The way you handle a complaint can turn a negative experience into a positive one.  If a customer feels strongly enough to make a complaint, the feedback you receive is worth its weight in gold. It is in the moment, it's current and it's real. A complaint is a gift, a golden nugget of opportunity.

This online workshop considers the skills required to respond to service complaints successfully. Service complaints being complaints about the level of service an organisation has provided or has failed to provide. As opposed to neighbour nuisance complaints which are complaints received from tenants about their neighbour's behaviour (please see our separate 'Managing neighbour nuisance complaints' workshop).


The workshop takes a blended learning approach.

  • A 3-hour fully interactive online Zoom session: join the Zoom session from any device, laptop, desktop, tablet or mobile phone
  • Gain access to an online downloadable self-study materials to reinforce learning
