Relationship, Responsiveness, Readiness: Connecting with Today’s Consumers

That's the next topic presented by our June 20th Speaker Evan Carroll.
Today’s connected customers expect every company to understand their individual needs and be more responsive than ever. No industry is immune to the increasing curve of customer expectations and the imperative to keep up with the latest technology. This talk illuminates how technology will give you a competitive advantage by driving friction-less commerce, customer loyalty, and word of mouth.
  • Successfully navigate high-tech vs. high-touch decisions
  • Unlock increased loyalty with customer-focused technology
  • Leverage technology to build customer relationships and improve responsiveness
  • Find the “Win-Win-Win” to create technology interactions that are better for your team, your customers, and ultimately your bottom line
As someone that has experienced technology become absent of the human touch, I know this topic is becoming more relevant every day. Artificial Intelligence is creeping into our businesses with customer service apps, and more extensive decision trees. These great tools can drive productivity and margins but many companies see the dark side and loss of customers to automation. Don't miss the chance to learn from this author, marketer and global expert.
