Extremely humorous Customer Service Training Film
24 November 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

John Cleese at his absolute best! Possibly better than Monty Python for those who do not understand Python humour (Personally, I never had a problem).

John Cleese is able to inject so much comedy yet still get his well-learned messages across in a way that nobody else seems to be able to do; it really is an Extremely humorous Customer Service Training Film.

I highly recommend this short movie for any business that has a Customer Service element. Though it is a selection of short stories within a select number of service industries, the lessons learned are EQUALLY applicable to ALL service industries.

I used it to help Computer Technicians prepare for Field Service, it was always the highlight of my Training Class.
