TOPIC STREAMS

Customer Engagement Strategies for the Modern Customer

The 'modern customer' is more informed and empowered than ever before, and their preferences and needs are constantly evolving. In order to stay ahead of the curve, organisations need to rethink and reinvent their customer engagement strategies. This stream will delve into the various ways in which organisations are successfully adapting and transforming their customer experience strategies to cater to the needs of the modern customer. From leveraging the latest technologies to implementing innovative tactics, this stream will provide valuable insights and best practices that can help organisations thrive when it comes to their customer engagement goals.

Linking People with our Customers

As we explore new and innovative ways to delight and engage our customers, we'll also be examining the crucial role that employee experiences play in creating a truly exceptional customer experience. By fostering a culture of outstanding employee experiences, we believe that you can unlock the key to your future success. So come and join us, and let's explore the possibilities together.

Voice of the Customer

By tapping into the power of the customer's voice, you can unlock a wealth of unparalleled 360° insights that will revolutionise the way you connect with your customers. Join this stream to discover how to listen to your customers and gain a deeper understanding of their needs, preferences, and pain points. With the Voice of the Customer at your fingertips, you can make data-driven decisions that will enhance your customer experience, increase loyalty, and drive your business forward. Don't miss out on this opportunity to harness the power of customer feedback and take your organisation to the next level.

The Rise of the Customer Service Design

In today's competitive business landscape, creating a positive customer experience is more important than ever. However, many companies overlook the critical role that Service Design plays in achieving this goal. That's where this stream comes in - we offer a fresh perspective and a new toolset to help you actively design experiences that not only delight your customers but also boost profits and save costs. Our unique approach will set you apart from the competition and position your brand as a customer-centric leader in your industry. Don't miss out on the opportunity to transform your business with our Service Design expertise.

Unlocking Exceptional Customer Journeys

Mapping your customer journey strategy is the key to building lasting relationships with your customers. Delivering a seamless and personalised experience at every customer touchpoint is crucial in today's fast-paced world, where customers demand quick resolution times and exceptional service. This stream will look at how delivering exceptional customer journeys can transform customer retention and loyalty.

Personalisation of the Customer Experience

Personalisation of the Customer Experience is key to creating a lasting bond between your organisation and your customers. By catering to the specific needs and preferences of your customers, you can create a tailored experience that will leave a lasting impression. This can be achieved by implementing personalised touchpoints throughout the customer journey, from targeted communications to customised recommendations. This stream will look at how, by taking the time to truly understand your customers and their unique requirements, you can create a winning strategy that will drive loyalty in the long run.

Artificial Intelligence and Self-Service

Despite staffing concerns being a persistent issue for customer service teams, organisations must find innovative ways to overcome these challenges. By automating customer service, companies can reduce their reliance on humans without compromising on customer satisfaction. Self-service options are seeing a surge in popularity this year to help customers get answers at their convenience.

Harnessing Technology in Customer Engagement

With the rapid expansion of the variety of channels customers can choose to use, this stream will look at how you can enhance your technology offering whilst also linking interactions to ensure you’re providing a personal, contextual experience for each customer.

Innovation in Customer Engagement

What customers expect from an organisation is constantly changing, so it's crucial that organisations continually find new ways to serve customers and enhance their experience. Speakers in this stream will be at the forefront of forward-thinking and explorative ideas to delight customers and transform their experience.

Digital vs. Human - Striking the Right Balance for Customers

In today's fast-paced world, organisations have the opportunity to serve their customers through both digital and human channels. While digital technology offers convenience and efficiency, human interaction provides a personal touch that cannot be replicated by machines. Striking the right balance between these two approaches is crucial for ensuring customer satisfaction and loyalty. Companies must leverage the benefits of both digital and human channels to create a seamless and engaging customer experience. This stream will look at how organisations can utilise the right mix of digital and human touchpoints to deliver exceptional customer service.

Creating a Customer-Centric Organisation

Those organisations succeeding in today's competitive market are those that truly understand their customers, anticipate their needs and deliver exceptional experiences that exceed their expectations. It's about building trust, loyalty and long-term relationships, rather than just a transaction. By utilising insight to  focus on the needs and wants of your customers, you can create a culture of customer obsession and differentiate yourself from the competition. Join this stream to learn how to create an organisation that puts your customers first.
