Customer Experience is becoming an ever more mainstream concept and part of any customer focused company’s core proposition. 


This is good in that not only do customers benefit from a better experience but also companies’ understanding of what motivates customers to switch to their brand and stay loyal is increasing. However, competition between companies is fierce and staying ahead is tough.


This session will focus on growth and innovation around customer experience and will start with 3 excellent presentations from 3 excellent and experienced presenters. We’ll be considering questions such as:

  • How can simplicity and simplification help drive better customer experience and innovation?
  • What is the appropriate level of customer experience?
  • Is investment in customer experience always justified?
  • Can a company’s core proposition disrupt commonly held beliefs about customer experience?
  • How does mobile speed affect customer proposition?
  • Should you compare your customer experience be measured against your peers or the best that’s out there?

We’ll wrap up with a panel session, when we’ll be encouraging our audience to challenge our presenters views, it what is guaranteed to be a lively session.
