What is WorldHost tm Customer Service Training?

The WorldHost programme is a modern and energetic Customer Service toolkit with topical DVD and CD scenarios. It can be used over a wide range of industries where the quality of front-line customer service is key to the success of the business. Delivered over a full day or half days, this programme is a great way to upskill your front-line staff. Full descriptions of the modules can be found here or by clicking the World Host link at the top of the page.

WorldHost has been adapted for the UK market with the support of leading employers, and as well as the core module - Principles of Customer Service, includes additional learning modules on Serving Customers With Disabilities, Service Across Cultures and the Ambassador Workshop, particularly designed for volunteers assisting visitors to our country.

Over the next decade the UK will host an impressive series of global sporting events, we have just seen the London Games this year, the Ryder Cup and Commonwealth Games will be in 2014 and the Rugby World Cup in 2015.

These events present a unique opportunity for hospitality, tourism, travel, leisure and retail businesses to showcase the best of Britain and increase their sales by providing a warm welcome and impeccable service to visitors to the UK.

To help businesses gain a competitive edge, Green Parasol is licensed to deliver WorldHost, a world-class training programme developed to raise the standard and delivery of customer service in the UK.

To date, nearly one million people have been trained using WorldHost - including 40,000 volunteers and tourism staff who helped make the Vancouver Winter Olympics in 2010 such a success.
