The telephone is considered the most convenient and quickest instrument to establish contact with clients by the majority of companies in Hong Kong. In fact, call centres are the leading operational departments of many organisations. So, it is fundamental that employees assigned to take or make phone calls from clients must possess superior telephone etiquette. These employees must display good communication skills, willingness, courtesy and the abilities to efficiently assist clients.

This Professional Phone Skills course from PD Training teaches you how to represent your organisation in a clear, friendly yet professional way. Remember, excellent customer service is an important ingredient to the success of any organisation. Clients who experience high-quality service are more willing to build a lasting relationship with your company. These clients can turn into long-term, loyal customers who spread the word about their positive experience.

This practical and engaging training course is available now throughout Hong Kong, including Central.

This Professional Telephone Skills training course can be delivered at your premises by one of our expert local or international trainers or live online using our HIVE technology.

    All involved enjoyed the training course now it’s up to the staff to take these tools and apply it to their daily work. Joseph catered the course for the different issues we are having in our office in regards to the phones and delivered it well. We found the training course very useful and relevant for our work. Joseph was very clear with his communication and it was great that the course was interactive. All staff that attended were very pleased with the presentation.

    I would like to thank Anne for all her help prior to the training and also for her delivery of the session which was excellent. Provided training in a very relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere - trainer talked with us not at us.

    Ross was an exceptional presenter. His energy and knowledge were beyond reproach.
    Department of Infrastructure and Transport
    Trainer was fantastic and engaged with everyone in the room. Would recommend pd training to others.
    Department of Infrastructure and Transport
    Ross was fabulous, easy going, and the feedback from staff is the most positive I've heard. Usually they are a pretty cynical bunch about training, but they really enjoyed the training and got a lot from it.
    Office of the Registrar of Indigenous Corporations
    It was an awesome session, even though we had little time, I really enjoyed it. The most important thing that I learned was "Treat people the way they want to be treated not the way you want yourself to be treated".
    Hastings Deering (Aust) Ltd
    I thought Annette's enthusiasm was infectious. She kept us on track and interested. I think she is the best trainer I've ever done a course with.
    Hastings Deering (Aust) Ltd
    It was very good. The trainer made good effort to obtain active participation from all. Was a friendly and entertaining environment. The small group made it an informal but proactive set up.
    Progress Tutoring
    I was delighted with the day and gained so much that I will apply to my position. Karen was an outstanding presenter and I will now look to undertake other courses. With thanks.
    We will definitely use you again for the Professional Telephone course as the notes and de-brief from the candidate was very comprehensive.
    Altitude Financial Group
    Our staff member attended the training session & came back enthusiastic about the class. She took notes & brought back some great rebuttals to our customer complaint calls. Thank you.
    Collins Restaurants Management Pty Ltd
    Megan allowed me to ask her any specific questions I had related to the course topic. She also tailored the course to suit our needs. The venue was amazing. I have never seen such a fun reception area in my life! There were too many lollies though. It's hard to concentrate when you're having a sugar crash after a morning tea consisting of chocolate bars. Was glad that some fruit was served as well... The manual is useful and I have already started referring back to it for key information we learned at the course. Thanks for a great day.
    APP Corporation Pty Ltd
    Karen was a delight to have a as trainer, she was enthusiastic and very helpful and the lunch that pd training provided was excellent.
    It was a good day of refreshing existing skills & also learning & utilising new ones! Also Ryan (who I originally spoke to when enquiring about the course) was extremely helpful & professional & followed up with me 2 days after the course.
    Downer EDI Engineering
    I learnt a lot from the course and also had fun whilst doing it.
