Communicating Customer Service Excellence

When was the last time you received ‘wow’ service? Improved customer relations will magically transform your bottom line profits…just like that!

All businesses are only as good as their people. Communication and positive attitude at all levels is essential in today’s world. Lack of communication often leads to misunderstanding and frustration and can cause a practice to lose valuable patients.

(6 interactive CET points)

Confident and Knowledgeable Optical Assistants – Special 2-Day Event

This fun interactive training session spread over two days aims to develop optical assistants who want to become more confident and knowledgeable in a patient-facing situation. As well as a general understanding of the world of optics, delegates will be introduced to basic dispensing and frame fitting techniques, enabling fantastic customer service.

Dispensing, Lifestyle, Selling & Collection

As a receptionist/optical assistant, how confident are you at taking measurements when in front of patients?

This development day is hands-on action for dispensing all lens types from single vision through to simple high index and progressives. Easy to understand explanations and demonstrations are guaranteed!

(6 CET points)

Fashion Frame Styling and High End Sales and Collections

Are you fed up of doing too many reglazes in your practice? Do you try and sell ‘spare’ pairs of glasses which could indicate the first pair might break? If so, it’s time to give your patients the red carpet treatment by fashion styling them during frame selection.

(3 CET points)

Frame Fitting and Adjustments

As a receptionist/optical assistant, how confident are you at adjusting a patients frame when in front of them? Remove the fear of frame fitting and adjusting! This all day hands-on adjustments course will provide you with the skills and confidence to perform adjustments on patient’s spectacles whether it is during the collection process or if they have come back after sitting on them (although they never admit it)!

(3 interactive CET points)

Improve Handovers and Maximise your Average Dispensing Values

Do you sometimes feel that you are missing out on  sales opportunities? This event is simply about maximising every opportunity in your practice to sell more spectacles to your patients but only selling to those who either ‘want‘ or ‘need‘ them!

(9 CET points)

Improve Handovers, Teamwork, Sales and Profit

STOP….

  • Saying the wrong words which 90% of practices still say today!
  • Letting your patients see spectacles as a grudge purchase and therefore don’t buy anything
  • Using language terms that don’t make sense to your patients
  • Hard selling and create an environment where your clients love to buy
  • Focusing on things that don’t matter
  • Having a patient journey which is outdated and not memorable

(6 CET points)

The World of Optics

This fun interactive day is aimed at optical assistants who want to be more confident understanding the world of optics such as basic refractive conditions, how the eye works and the different lens options used in patients prescriptions.

What Our Attendees Say

 

Thank you very much to Simon Burgess

I would just like to say thank you very much to Simon Burgess for our bespoke training day early January 2017. We have had a record January by far (despite closing for the day) thanks to Simon’s encouragement and motivation of the team. If anyone has not had a bespoke day recently I would thoroughly recommend it!

The dispensing course paid for itself

The dispensing course paid for itself within a week or so. The weeks since - into profit and a buzz of activity from freshly motivated staff. These are already well trained experienced staff who weren't sure if they were going to learn anything relevant and new. We're still developing and implementing the list of good ideas they've brought from that day, and - the bottom line - our best July / August ever!

Our bespoke day was a great success

"Our bespoke day was a great success, the staff enjoyed and were challenged by it. They have much more confidence in dispensing and giving our patients an informed choice for their optical requirements. I am sure it was no coincidence that the month following the training day was our best ever! Thank you Simon"

All staff were able to benefit

Simon delivered a "custom made" day tutorial which meant that all staff were able to benefit. It resulted in an increase in their confidence, performance and general morale within the practice. We all had fun too. We will be asking him back soon.

Our bespoke training day exceeded expectations

Our recent bespoke training day run by Simon Burgess exceeded expectations. We wanted the day to reinforce good practice to our long serving staff and define our service delivery to our newer staff. We also wanted it to be a team building day which allowed the staff to discuss any issues with each other. 

The staff had a great time, Simon kept things entertaining and yet challenging. I ended up with a list of ideas from the staff of changes they can make to improve the impression we give to patients. A very worthwhile day!

The sessions have been informative, invigorating and create a buzz

We have just completed our 3rd bespoke training day with Sight Care Training. The sessions have been informative, invigorating and create a buzz amongst the staff which becomes infectious. A fantastic investment in your company!

It was also a lot of fun!

We had an onsite day of training from Simon to create a buzz within the team. We held it during our recent refit and it made a huge difference to the team. We started back looking to raise the bar with confident, inspired staff. The day was built to give us the skills to meet ever increasing patient expectations. It was a brilliant exercise because we all got the same training at the same time. The day has already reaped financial dividends with higher average order values from more interactive frame styling. The best outcome, however, is a more effective practice team all working together. It was also a lot of fun!
