Outsourcing Books

Book 1 : Customer Contact Outsourcing - What Every Outsource Client Needs To Know

What Every Outsource Client Needs To KnowIs the first book in Brownell O'Connor's 'Outstanding Outsourcing' trilogy. With 15 years experience in the global Contact Centre industry and numerous executive postings in multinational, Contact Outsource organisations, Dr. Brownell not only offers clear, salient advice but he brings it all to life with a multitude of case studies and real life examples.

Brownell descends from a long line of "Seanachai" (Shan-a-key) - the story-tellers of ancient Ireland. In days of yore, the Seanachai travelled the width and breath of the land bringing news and tales of far off places. The "Seanachai" often accompanied their tales with the "fiddle" (Violin) in a form of ballad that Brownell remarks, is not entirely unlike modern-day RAP. The Doctor is unlikely to be seen playing the "fiddle" or rapping, but apart from that, for this "Fear Umpur Scealta (man of many tales), anything else goes.
