Nicola will be delivering a session on the ‘Customer Experience – differentiation through amazing customer journeys, from agent to school and home again‘. Many of you will know Nicola as one of the Directors of Study Travel. Nicola is a trained coach and mentor and has been training people in sales for 23 years. She believes good customer journeys equal increased sales.
