Among the top­ics of dis­course were the abil­ity to han­dle cus­tomers and clients, and what an or­ga­ni­za­tion can of­fer in terms of cus­tomer ser­vice that would dis­tin­guish it from oth­ers- such as pre­sent­ing a pro­fes­sional im­age, lis­ten­ing at­ten­tively, con­trol­ling one’s emo­tions, and ef­fec­tive prob­lem-solv­ing skills.
