Above the Clouds: Next level in client services
Posted: 10/15/2015

April 8th and 9th, 2015 – Long Beach Airport (KLGB)


Hosted by Airflite and Presented in conjunction with ServiceElements

Continuous improvement does not just apply to safety! Many air charter and aircraft management firms understand customer service, but merely understanding is not good enough in today’s dynamic industry. A static service environment will quickly fall behind the competitors. Above the Clouds: Next Level Client Services is a workshop experience tailored to provide the knowledge and skill to drive continuous improvement in customer loyalty, revenues and profits.

Workshop topics will include but are not limited to:


Managing Communications & Personalities

Managing challenging personalities and interpersonal styles and skills is integral to client services.  Developing strategies that affect your image and service delivery will help you become more effective in addressing customer issues and will elevate your organization to the top.


Excelling with Discerning and Demanding Clients

Managing the expectations of passengers, customers and aircraft user’s takes proactive practice and preparedness. You can’t always fix all the problems, but you can effectively manage the situation.


Best Practices in Cultivating Loyalty

Customer satisfaction is a basic expectation today. Loyalty is given only to those who earn it!
Who Should Attend

This workshop experience is designed for team members at air charter, aircraft management and part 91 flight departments. Pilots, cabin attendants, client relationship specialists and department managers will leave this workshop with an improved set of knowledge and skills that allow them to leverage interactions and relationships with clients to build client loyalty.
