The course was cleverly created to support deep learning across all pillars of the Customer performance domains with teaching, materials supplied and resources suggested for further learning all rated 10/10 giving immediate value! Thank you, thank you, thank you Anita and Lynn, you have fast tracked my learning in all things Customer and pulled the covers back on Customer truths with depth and practical meaning.

The CX Excellence Course provided a wealth of information that consolidated and extended both my theoretical and practical knowledge of CX. The facilitators are hugely knowledgeable and very generous in sharing their experience and materials. The course provides fantastic online resources which will be a very useful reference point in future. I highly recommend this course for current and aspiring CX leaders and practitioners.
