Workshops at The Skill Shop - Professional and trustworthy sessions

Clear agenda, structure and positive engagement

Professional and trustworthy sessions

Our In-Person & Virtual Group Workshops address key areas of your team’s sales and customer experience activities.  

Together, we define your desired training outcome and analyze your team’s knowledge or skill gap. Based on these parameters, we design the learning blocks for your team and intersperse them with engaging interaction.

The Skill Shop - Sales and customer experience workshop topics
For both in-person and virtual workshops we facilitate groups of up to 20 participants and recommend that online sessions are delivered in one hour nuggets for optimal results. 
We review the detailed roles and typical duties of the participants, understanding how well they know each other and if they’ve previously been exposed to training on these topics.

Our Method

Theory + Interaction + Action

Workshops - Our Method

We look at human psychology to guide participants towards the highly important “A-ha” moments in customer experience .  We include components such as best practice examples, exercises, exchange of experiences, work aids, and checklists to engage participants.


No one wants to sit through yet another powerpoint presentation and listen for hours on end to a speaker. That’s why our workshops are based on a balanced mixture of presentation and discussion in the collective group as well as reflection and feedback in small groups to ensure a sustainable learning impact.


Once everyone’s back at the office, our concrete implementation steps guide your team to apply what they’ve learned in order to achieve the desired outcome.
