Our Presenter: Curtis Bingham
Every company’s goal is to achieve profitable, long-term growth, yet they often fail to realize that they will not reach this objective without a critical mass of satisfied, loyal customers. And this does not happen by chance. Rather, it requires a deliberate approach fully embraced by the C-Suite to systematically improve the customer experience.
In this presentation, Curtis will describe best practices in garnering powerful executive-level support for customer experience initiatives, based on his work with more than 70 Chief Customer Officers from around the world. From this presentation, you will gain practical, proven insight into:
· Articulating and selling the strategy that becoming a customer-centric organization will further advance corporate and stakeholder goals.
· How customer-centricity contributes directly to the bottom line, and is a prerequisite to improving the customer experience.
· Lobbying key stakeholders to support these initiatives, so you’re not a “lone voice in the wilderness”
· Developing clear communication strategies to bridge the gap among various stakeholders.
· Improving the customer experience using innovative methodologies to drive profitable customer behavior without experimenting at the customers’ expense.
