However, there are variables that are outside our sphere of influence which might cause issues to escalate and derail our projects. Learning how to remain calm and manage escalations well, can mean the difference between a satisfied or frustrated customer, and can create a lasting impression on your organization and stakeholders.

What you will gain from this presentation:

1. Learn the essential skills for escalation management
2. ⁠Understand the different stages of an escalation and how to respond to each stage appropriately
3. ⁠How to turn an escalation around and even delight the customer at the end of it
