The Art of Customer Service for Arts Administrators

Join us on June 8, 15, and 22 for an interactive 3-part workshop series geared towards arts administrators. The learning content for these sessions is progressive and registration includes access to all three (3) workshop sessions.

Over the course of these three sessions, you will explore how and why good relationships are vital: professionally, personally and financially. Your goals can be met when you address the needs of your clients, colleagues, and community. As representatives of your organization, a part of your job is to ensure that your networks and stakeholders feel recognized and respected; heard and cared for, and that they feel comfortable and welcome.

Training is provided by the team behind The Art of Customer Service. Their mission is to provide a unique training program where the primary focus is on building relationships - the basis for outstanding customer service. They teach the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for superior interactions in ways that make the program engaging, respectful and fun.

Each facilitator uses artistic, physical, vocal, or other activities combined with traditional teaching methods including presentations, videos, demonstrations, discussions, handouts, homework, or practical exercises to illustrate themes that are significant when communicating with clients, colleagues, and community.
