    I attended the Customer Service Certification Conference at Stanford University in late March 2017. After attending all of the training sessions, I was excited to put what I had learned into practice. I set up monthly training sessions with the Enrolment Service Officers, who answer all calls coming into our institution, and have had 4 sessions so far using the techniques and tools taught by Susan and Stephen. I would like to share what my Service Champion has written about her experience with the training so far:
    “I had been struggling with being happy and feeling successful in my role in a high-volume, fast-paced and demanding student service environment. I recognized that my own behavior was contributing to my struggle with finding success in my day, but didn’t know exactly what I needed to change. I went to my leadership team (who had coincidentally just returned from their Service Excellence training) and shared that I was struggling and finding myself very dissatisfied (but not wanting to leave), and asked what I could be doing to be better at my job. The tools they brought back have transformed my relationship with the students and community members who I spend my days interacting with. I have shifted my perspective on what my role is and how to frame my approach to the students, and it has made everyone involved happier and more satisfied. I’ve learned to frame the conversation in a better and more empathetic way; how to listen to students and stop assuming I know what they’re about to ask; to give the student the space to air their concerns; and most importantly, find the value in what I do – which is simply helping people. We have done monthly team training sessions and I always look forward to the next topic we are going to cover and having the opportunity to continually explore how we can improve our service. It has made me happier in my job, and I believe it has made the team stronger and better as well.
    Thank you,
    Amanda, B.A.
    Enrolment Services Officer”
    This says it all about the training. The success we have had as a team with this training has significantly improved morale for the team and for individuals as you can see. Truly the best experience, professionally, I have had to date.

    I attended ALL-STAR Customer Service Certification training in early 2017 and found all components of the course exceptionally interactive and participatory. The information and nature of participation was simply exceptional: well-thought through exercises, relevant and applicable examples, excellent analysis and feedback. This was one of the best courses I have ever attended. The materials and venue were excellent and the course facilitators extremely knowledgeable and personable. I recommend this training to all student-facing services interested in making real positive change in their universities and colleges.
