Customer Service Excellence Course for the Agri-food Sector in the North West

The lifting of the USA embargo on Irish meat as well as changes to the Milk quota creates opportunities in the Agri-Food sector. The quality of Irish produce is respected globally. It is important to offer not only Produce Excellence but also Customer Service Excellence right through the supply chain. By providing both, the sector will be much stronger and those who apply it will have a competitive edge.




Customer Service Excellence Ireland together with AIB, Skillnets and BASICC (Ballybofey and Stranorlar Integrated Community Company Ltd) are running a 4 night Customer Service Excellence Course for the Agri-Food sector. 

This course is subsidised but a nominal fee of €25.00 per person will apply to cover some of the cost of delivering the course.

The course dates will be:
  • Monday the 23rd February
  • Monday the 2nd March
  • Monday the 9th March and
  • Monday the 16th March
Time: 6 – 9pm

Venue: The BASE Enterprise Centre, Railway Road, Stranorlar. Co Donegal
Cost: €25.00 per person



Participants will gain increased skills and knowledge about how to offer the very best customer service through their work and the positive impact this has on sales and repeat business. 

The training workshops are interactive and involve the entire group and their experience. 
Customer Service Excellence Ireland Certificates will be issued to all who attend.
