“WorldHost was a great fit for our needs, and, as a recognised standard, we knew we needed to be part of it. We’ve done various schemes over the years, but this has by far and away been the most practical – the information was useful and reinforced with good examples. I would recommend it to anyone looking to refresh their customer service skills."
