You ask them to demonstrate their understanding of customer engagement by producing three posters (or academic graphic displays) to show in the workplace. The posters may be produced on the computer, or they may be drawn, or you may cut images from magazines (or any other method that achieves the same result). Central to their posters will be an image of a customer (choose three customer types from Task 1, or three of your own choice), the remainder of the posters will show examples of things that engage each type of customer – these may be presented as pictures, or as text boxes, or handwritten/drawn.
