Powerful Cash Collection Techniques

In the same way that sales people are in competition for business, credit controllers are in competition for cash. The telephone is a powerful tool for cash collection, but only when you have the skills to maximise its potential. This dynamic and interactive course enables delegates to use the telephone as a weapon of mass persuasion, turning reasons for non payment into payment and helping you improve payments from all types of customers.

Cost: £397 plus VAT per delegate – including course notes, attendance certificate, lunch and refreshments.
