Professional Receptionist Course



The title “receptionist” is attributed to the person who is specifically employed by an organisation to receive or greet any visitors, patients, or clients and answer telephone calls.

Being the Face of the Organisation – first impressions are lasting impressions; there is no second chance, when you are dealing with people, either face to face or on the telephone. Receptionists are the shop window to your organisation; the image they present is a vital component for the success of any business and the one that the customer or visitor takes away with them.
