The Customer Of The Future: 10 Guiding Principles For Winning Tomorrow’s Business. Based on her new book (HarperCollins), learn how to adopt ten easy-to-follow customer experience guidelines that integrate emerging technologies with effective strategies to combat disconnected processes, silo mentalities, and a lack of buyer perspective to keep up with the demands of the customer of the future.
More Is More: How The Best Companies Work Harder & Go Farther To Create Knock Your Socks Off Customer Experiences. Based on her first book, the phrase “less is more” may be true about many things, but it’s not true when it comes to customer experience. Companies that want to stay relevant must apply more energy, focus, and resources to creating knock-your-socks-off customer experiences than they ever did before.
The Future Belongs To Companies That Create Incredible Customer Experiences. The customer of the future is already here. Customers today don’t only expect personalized, zero friction, seamless customer experiences, they demand it. There is only one thing that matters when it comes to winning with customer experience; making the customer’s life easier and better. Your customer is comparing the experience she has with Netflix, Amazon, Spotify, and Apple with her experience with your business. These technology first companies don’t only personalize the customer experience, they anticipate customer needs, and alter the experience in real-time. The business that focuses on experience must have a customer experience focus across the business. While shifting from a product-focus to a customer-focus is not easy, investing in long-term customer relationships empowers businesses to drive sustained growth.

- Learn how companies are preparing for the customer of the future with digital transformation

However, the mindset of companies in the space is changing with new technology and opportunities.

Building Beautiful Customer Experiences With AI. Even though AI has been around for 60 years, it is only now that artificial intelligence can be used to create personalized customer experiences, better self service, and key customer insights. For decades we’ve provided customers with experiences that were very non-human. All too often we don’t know who our customers are, we don’t know what’s going on in their lives, we have no idea what they need or why. Across the board customer experiences are still made for the masses and not the individual. However advances in artificial intelligence now make it possible for brands to great customers less like machines and more like people. AI and machine learning learning provides actual personalization—where we can now treat a customer truly like a person.
In this session, you will learn how to:
- Set the stage to leverage AI to make customers’ lives easier and better
- Understand the key challenges of implementing AI
- Better understand one futurist’s vision of customer experience shaped by AI
