The 4th Customer Experience (CX) PH Seminar 2019

Date: May 24, 2019
Location: AIM Conference Center, Makati City, PH


As customer experience becomes key to business sustainability, CX innovators now are mandated to ‘be the engine of growth’ for the company.

Successful brands learned to understand customer to deliver compelling and engaging experiences in the moment.

The next breed of CX innovators, however, are using smart insights derived from deep customer understanding to discover completely new business opportunities, expand customer relationships into new verticals, and explosively grow revenues (Forrester Research).

This radical innovation can only be pursued by enterprises that are driven by CX, not merely informed or improved by it.

Dynamic companies pursue ‘radical innovation’ (not just incremental innovation) and refer to this as the emerging benchmark of CX leadership. Disruptive customer-centric innovation is required to achieve explosive business growth.

To drive growth, CX leaders must take on a visible, assertive and decisive profile in directing the whole organization towards new business opportunities, new and existing customers, and new sources of revenue.

This seminar presents CX thought leadership, best practices, successful case studies to expand existing CX strategy. Get cutting edge insights on how innovative CX programs encompass overall customer interactions using omni-channel approaches to deliver new opportunities and increased revenues.
