Southwestern Oregon Community College’s Small Business Development Center (Southwestern SBDC) is offering an interactive workshop on providing excellent customer service on January 27, 2014.  Are your customers getting the service they deserve? Do they leave your business saying “Wow, I can’t wait to go back”?  Great customer service means giving customers what they want…but how do you know what they want?  This is a class to learn about exceeding customer expectations every time.  Customer Service will be taught by Arlene M.
