Customer Service Skills for Your StaffIf you own a business or provide customer service at one of our Smith Mountain Lake businesses, you will want to be aware of some upcoming training opportunities.

In actuality, every business offers some kind of customer service, from simple sales to departments devoted solely to that purpose. As someone who has owned a business as well as being an employee dealing in customer service issues, I know how valuable all such seminars can be. Perhaps you and your staff will be able to take advantage of one of the two local training sessions on how to provide higher quality service to your customers.
