Event description


Hacking Customer Experience

Can customer experience be the difference between keeping and losing a new customer? What if after winning a new account or client, the experience delivered doesn’t meet the client’s expectations and things go south?

What if by implementing simple customer experience tools and techniques across the business and the team, you were able to delight new customers as well as retain your loyal customers for much longer?

During this presentation and panel, we will hear how success and failure with clients, has led significant and ongoing change to become a more human and customer centric business.

/// what you will learn:

  • What growth hacking and how it relates to customer experience

  • How to apply “growth hacking” mentality to customer experience

  • How to identify customer intangible customer experience pain points and frictions that are affecting your ability to grow

  • How to onboard and satisfied clients during all stages of a customer journey

/// the speaker(s):

Joe McCord is the General Manager of Web Development & Digital Marketing Agency Digital8. Joe is a growth hacker with a strong reputation for offering innovative solutions to complex business growth scenarios.

Joe enjoys making people happy and as a business person, particularly in agency, he ‘deals with people at scale’. Joes says: ‘I am responsible for my customers, and my customers’ customers. It pains me to feel like I am responsible for the proliferation of negative experiences among people and I work tirelessly to ensure that everybody who I can influence is enjoying their experience no matter what it is.

Ash Thompson is the Head of Customer Success at the innovative brand management and marketing product platform, Outfit.

Ash helps businesses of all sizes to create unique and streamline branding via the usage of their platform Outfit but is also an advocate for customer experience and walking into someone’s shoes. ‘We always try to make sure that what we do is fun for our clients. I think engagement and emotions are key during any business interaction’.
