Despite the ever-increasing move towards a more digitalised, technological world, a common theme emerged throughout the conference. The importance of delivering great customer service and a great customer experience.

This relies heavily on the people delivering it. At Upskill People, we believe in helping people shine and we’re committed to proving training works through measurement and analysis.

Making a measurable difference through effective training requires a top-down approach. This starts with having great managers and leadership.

This was another key theme emphasised by the minister himself.

At Upskill People, we believe managers are key to every business. That’s why we developed Managing People. An innovative digital form of management training that’s already helping people shine.

The series takes approximately seven hours to complete and is the equivalent of three-days classroom-based training, showing how cost-effective online learning can be.

Upskill People look forward to more exciting developments in the Asian retail industry and for next year’s conference.
