Is Your Customer Service Cooperative Service?

Cooperative Service Training is a transformational workshop that goes beyond one-size-fits-all trainings to address the needs of co-ops to grow membership, increase engagement, and provide staff with tools to understand and model the cooperative difference. Skill-building activities, small group discussions and facilitator presentations provide targeted training for staff to handle complaints, provide service and confidently discuss membership with owners, future owners and shoppers.  Save up to $1000 on this add-on when you re-enroll in CBLD. Contact Rebecca Torpie for more information.
