Keynotes

Steven Van Bellegham

We are entering the third phase of digitisation where artificial intelligence will raise the bar in terms of customer experience. Customer experience is evolving from a mobile-first to an AI-first business. For customers this is the start of the most exciting phase ever. They will enjoy benefits like hyper-personalisation, faster than real-time customer service and the most user-friendly interfaces ever seen. In his NEW keynote, Steven describes how to invest in the customer experience of the day after tomorrow. The keynote expounds on three key investment areas: consumer science, automated interfaces and intelligence augmented. As always, Steven’s enthusiastic delivery illustrates the journey with a variety of real-life cases and new management models. 

Hamish Taylor

Hamish will change the way you understand your customers, both internal and external and bring new insights that will enable you to create a Customer Promise – a change in the definition of the business or individual role, to a statement of customer benefit rather than a description of your expertise. For Hamish, this was the key to both driving innovation and creating a simple leadership tool to unlock the potential of the whole organisation. 

What you will discover:

– How do concepts such as soft insights, customer expectations, customer’s customer and the blank sheet of paper approach give new insights that enable competitive advantage?
– Why does the customer promise provide a simple leadership tool that places the customer at the heart of everyone’s work?
– What are the implications for both customer engagement and leadership?
