The art of a stellar customer experience

This talk addresses the challenges that sales, marketing and customer service representatives face today as they try to achieve customer engagement and customer loyalty in a connected world.
We certainly live in the age of the connected customer. Today everyone is connected on line. Through internet our customers do their own research on our products and services. They even make their buying decisions whilst they spend time on line. As a result, the traditional buying journey has changed dramatically. Internet technology has had a massive impact on the way we influence our customers, the way we communicate with them and the way we manage our relationship with them.
In this talk, I will focus on the design and delivery of a strong, memorable and consistent brand experience. I will discuss how to map and leverage your Moment of Truth (MOT) and touch points across the customer’s journey.
