Giles Owen, Head of Customer Services, Bristan Group

An avid lover of call centres since the mid-90s. I have always believed that great service is delivered by great people, although the great people need to have the freedom and autonomy to operate in a great environment. It is the privilege of business leaders and managers to remove the barriers to greatness and to nurture the environment for success.
