Customers with Disabilities: Whole day (but can be run as Half Day) 

Disabled Customers are a huge market in the UK - worth an estimated £80 billion per year. If you want to make sure your staff have the skill to cater for their needs, our WorldHost Customers with Disabilities programme can help.
In this interactive programme, your staff will gain the knowledge and confidence to cater for disabled customers' needs sensitively and effectively. We will debunk some of the myths around disabilities and give staff tips and techniques on assisting customers with common disabilities and impairments - such as restricted mobility and hearing or visual impairments. 
Most staff don't set out to give disabled customers a bad experience. Often, they are worried about saying or doing the wrong thing, so avoid interaction altogether or their nervousness is mistaken for rudeness.
By giving your staff the confidence to make disabled customers feel welcome, you'll not only win their custom, but that of their family and friends too.
What will I learn:
Your staff will learn:
•    Appropriate words to use when referring to different disabilities
•    Tips for improving communication with disabled customers
•    Common disabilities that customers may have and appropriate ways to offer assistance
•    How to be more aware of their own feelings, misconceptions and biases when serving disabled customers

Service Across Cultures: Whole day (but can be run as Half day)
The WorldHost Service Across Cultures programme will increase awareness of other cultures and give them practical skills and advice to help them communicate effectively with visitors or clients from overseas.  
Making sure that your customers feel comfortable is a crucial part of the customer service process. But if there's a language barrier or cultural differences, it can be an awkward experience for staff and customers alike.
This programme is also great for improving internal customer service - especially in businesses that employ people from a wide range of nationalities and backgrounds. Businesses who have used this programme have reported better communication, understanding and working relationships within their own teams.
What will I learn:
Your staff will learn:
•    The importance of overseas tourism to your business
