* Training of the team

* Evaluation of the workflow

for the Visitors Centre of Visit Flanders.

Elke Dens, Marketing Director at Visit Flanders and Chairperson Marketing Group ETC at European Travel Commission:

“Gabriela was consulting the head and team of our visitor information centre. I found out she is very quick and good in detecting underlying problems and understanding what is really motivating people and what is not. Of course, her long experience within the field of visitor information centres was very useful, because she truly understands what keeps this team busy on a day-to-day basis. However, her advice would have not been so good if she was not the kind of person that really understands behavioural psychology in a professional context. I can advise Gabriela to anyone who wants to improve customer service. She can make your team change towards a more customer focus. And because change always starts with the change of the management, I can assure you she also has very good coaching skills, challenging managers, making them grow.”

The result is a light form of euphoria after the training. However, more important: also on the long term the team has become much more mature, positive, and thus more effective. And they truely enjoyed every session!“

Sales training and Future workshop

Managing Director::

„Zusammen mit Ihnen haben wir Neuland betreten mit den Workshops zu Strategie, neue Ausrichtung und innere Abläufe in unserem Reisebüro. Sie haben uns engagiert und kompetent nicht nur auf Schwachstellen aufmerksam gemacht, sondern uns auch Lösungen angeboten. Das fanden wir toll und auf jeden Fall motivierend, auch weil Sie dazu beigetragen haben, die Kommunikation innerhalb unserer Belegschaft zu optimieren und neue Erkenntnisse im Umgang mit Kunden umzusetzen. Für uns war es 

wichtig, dass Sie genau diese Schnittstellen gefunden haben, die für unsere Arbeit wichtig sind und sich auch in der Kundenresonanz widerspiegeln. Was wir noch nicht geschafft haben: der Chef lässt sich noch immer den Kaffee servieren - aber wir arbeiten dran!“
