What to expect at the conference

The conference is for contact centre managers and aims to keep participants up to date with trends and ahead-of-time with information on how to provide flawless customer service with motivated, diverse teams in the contact centre galaxy. The conferences have a Star Wars theme and will help you grow as a professional on your hero’s journey to lead your team to Jedi mastery.

The 2018 Conference Tour brings Contact Centre professionals fresh perspectives, real-life case studies and inspirational keynotes in the following topics:

  • People Management, leadership and organizational excellence

  • Process optimisations, analytics, ROI and big data
  • Customer experience, customer journey mapping, loyalty and retention, customer satisfaction

These 4 aspects need to be addressed by every Contact Centre professional wanting to become a Jedi Master, and they need to ask: How do these aspects impact business progress? How can their power be harnessed to produce a growth in the Contact Centre?

Find out from top industry disruptors, innovators and thinkers, how to create and maintain organizational excellence while nurturing a healthy and productive culture in 2018 and beyond.
