Case studies include:

The Guardian Case study: Insurgent CX: How to champion the customer in organisations that are not customer centric Ben Lappin, Head of Retention & CX, The Guardian • Frustrated that your organisation says that it is customer centric, but then behaves in ways that are not? • Do your customer focused initiatives make the first draft of the budget but usually out by the final submission? • Discouraged because you can see the huge leaps forward your business could take if only they would prioritise customer experience? • While there are some ultra-visible companies that get customer experience right, most of us work in organisations where customer experience is often talked about as a priority, but rarely treated like one.

M&S Case Study: How we’ve delivered superior conversational experiences Bogdan Grigorescu, AI Platform, Marks & Spencer At Marks and Spencer we’ve delivered conversational experiences through Natural Language Processing to customers calling the retails stores and the contact centre. The platform achieved 100% uptime since go live and increased engagement rate by 38%. It contains 25% of calls through self serve functions and has reduced call transfers by 50%.

Adrian Morley, Change and Implementation Manager, Co-op Adrian will outline how Co-op implemented a global business services model to achieve the economies of scale and expertise it needed to support its “Stronger Co-op, Stronger Communities” ambition. The approach, which puts customers and colleagues at the heart of the transformation, was “Highly Commended” at the 2019 Engage Awards in which Coop also won Best Use of Voice of Employee.

The purpose of this session is to help customer experience professionals with playbook to champion their work and demonstrate the value they can add in organisations where they are not currently being heard.

Co-op Case Study: Scaling our award-winning global business services model

Motability Case Study: Virtual vs. Human Interaction: Is omnichannel actually the right thing for your employees and customers? Llaura Hughes, Communications & Development Manager Motability Operations Ltd Is it appropriate to push the customer to a virtual conversation before they can interact with a human being? With ever changing customer bases, expectations of first point resolution and a push to embrace technological changes, have you considered whether all of your front line employee are prepared for any customer contact that they may have? We’ll discuss the learns of synergising multi-channel communications, how best to interact with customers and how to utilise the findings from web chat, bot chat and speech analytics to ensure that any interaction with a customer focuses on emotional intelligence rather than concentrating solely on business process.


Case studies include:

Share UK Case Study: CX Excellence at The Share Centre Mary Cope, Head of HR, Learning & Development, The Share Centre How our ‘Good to Great’ strategy is driving continuous improvement through service design . How our approach to Leadership, Followership and Partnership in our customer facing teams (and the overall business) is driving increased service excellence for our customers.

BT Opening Keynote: The Autonomous Customer 2020 Nicola Millard, Head of Customer Insight & Futures, BT It’s the 10th anniversary of BT’s “Autonomous Customer” research and this year we’ve surveyed 6000 customers across 12 countries (including the UK, US, Australia, China, South Africa and Germany) about their expectations from customer experience, their top channel choices and what role the contact centre plays in all this. This presentation will unpick some of the trends, surprises and themes of 2020, as well as reflecting on what we got right (and wrong) in the 10 years since we started this research. We will answer questions such as: • Is the phone dead? • Is AI relevant to customers? • Do customers still want to chat, tap and talk? • How does the contact centre need to respond to these trends?

Liberty Global Case Study: Chatbots, Webchat and Virtual Assistants Chris Gormley, Technologis t& Laura Mackin, Communications & Marketing Manager, Liberty IT Voice enabled Virtual Assistants in Liberty Mutual Insurance’s Call Centres are handling 160k+ calls per month with zero call time queueing and 100% reliability, saving the business millions of dollars. There are numerous categories of calls being deflected away from the traditional call centre. The Virtual Assistants are capable of fully answering an extensive list of caller queries, as well as being able to redirect the caller to the most appropriate team member or department. Laura McFarland and Chris Gormley from Liberty IT (Liberty Mutual’s technology arm), will inspire your audience to leverage emerging tech within their org. They will talk through their Virtual Assistants which use cloud-based Amazon Connect and Amazon Lex. They will share how their innovation is saving Liberty Mutual millions of dollars each year and has been named as a best in class example by Amazon.

Virgin Atlantic Opening Keynote: Transforming our Customer Centre Luke Squires, Head of Customer Centres and Sales Engagement, Virgin Holidays A look at who we are, where we were and how we plan to transform the way we connect with our customers in a seamless and effortless manner for both our customers and our staff, focussing on People, Technology, MI and CRM.

“The ideas I took back to the office gave me a fresh way of working and helped overcome organisational barriers – I’ll be back, thanks for a great day!” Head of Customer Services, TK Maxx


Case studies include:

Seven steps to operations heaven in the contact centre Susanne Vanner, Partner, Ernst & Young LLP OTS Everyone knows that contact centres are coming under ever increasing pressure to reduce costs, increase effectiveness and drive customer satisfaction. How do you drive transformation and maintain delivery, when everything around you is also changing? Susanne Vanner, Partner within Strategy and Operations (Operational Transaction Services) at EY will reveal seven ways to optimise operational effectiveness within contact centres, drawing on over 20 years’ experience of leading contact centre transformation projects.

Vodafone Case Study: How can we Enable Customer Success in a Digital World? Jason Hendry, Global Head of Commercial & Service Management, Vodafone Business The principle of Customer Success started in the SaaS (Software as a Service) Industry, it has slowly migrated to technology companies who are looking to shift towards outcome based commercial modelling. With the drive to Digital Channels how do we enable the scarce physical resources to maximise the benefit for both customer and business alike. The questions are: • How do we create the right insight through Digital Channels? • How do we enact on those insights? • What is the correct blend between digital and physical?

Move over Gen Z: How Gen Alpha will shape the Customer and Employee Experience David Evans, Solutions Consultant, Calabrio Gen Z’s expectations on experience – both in the workplace and as a consumer – have been top of mind across all industries for the past ten years. As Gen Alpha (children born between 2011 and 2025) starts to come of age, companies must now look to adapt their customer and employee experience strategies to meet the expectations of this youngest generation. Taking a look at today’s adolescent behaviours and daily experiences – like their reliance on technology and interactions with robots – will help brands create and plan for what this generation will expect and answer questions such as: What role will voice communications play? How important will interactions with humans versus bots be? In this presentation, Dave Evans, Sales Engineer at Calabrio will share the findings of a survey that looked at the perceived gap between what companies expect Gen Alpha consumers to want and what parents of these budding new consumers think they will actually want. David will also dig into which technologies, processes and strategies brands will need to adopt to ensure top notch experiences for this generation.

Motability Operations Ltd. Case Study: Virtual vs. Human Interaction: Is Omnichannel really the right thing? Llaura Hughes, Communications & Development Team Manager, Motability Operations Ltd Do you really understand how your customers want to interact with your organisation? Have you asked yourself whether it is appropriate to push your customers towards a virtual conversation before they can interact with a human being? Just because omnichannel has worked for some, is it really a one size fits all? With ever-changing customer bases, expectations of first point resolution and a push to embrace technological changes, have you considered whether all your front line employees are prepared for any customer contact that they may have? In this presentation we’ll discuss the learns of synergising multi-channel communications, how best to interact with customers and how to utilise the findings from web chat, bot chat and speech analytics to ensure that any interaction with a customer focuses on emotional intelligence rather than concentrating solely on business process.


Case studies include:

Census Life Case Study: Recognising Talent from ‘Behind the Walls’ Richard Rowle, Managing Director & Nicola Whitbread, Operations Manager, Census Life Richard is the Managing Director of social enterprise Census Life, part of Queen’s Award Winner and ECCCSA Gold Winner Census Group.

There are numerous categories of calls being deflected away from the traditional call centre. The Virtual Assistants are capable of fully answering an extensive list of caller queries, as well as being able to redirect the caller to the most appropriate team member or department.

Richard will share how Census Life decided to take a very unique and unusual approach, as their entire business ethos is to support those with criminal records back into society through meaningful employment and to educate and influence other businesses, decision-makers and policy-makers.

Laura McFarland and Chris Gormley from Liberty IT (Liberty Mutual’s technology arm), will inspire your audience to leverage emerging tech within their organisation. They will talk through their Virtual Assistants which use cloud-based Amazon Connect and Amazon Lex. They will share how their innovation is saving Liberty Mutual millions of dollars each year and has been named as a best in class example by Amazon.

There are 11.7 million people in the UK with a previous criminal conviction, over 17% of the population, this presents a huge talent pool of people that businesses can directly benefit from. Behind every conviction there is a story, one which you won’t normally hear. However, delegates will hear from Nicola, Operations Manager at Census Life, on her journey from custody to community.

Centrica Case Study: Barriers and Opportunities to the Delivery of Customer Experience Patricia Sanchez-Diaz, Customer Experience Lead, Senior Manager, Centrica How do colleagues become able, empowered, and informed so that they deliver the intended customer experience? What are the barriers and/or opportunities to the delivery of the intended customer experience in the contact centre?

Laura McFarland, Software Technologist & Chris Gormley, Software Technologist, Liberty Mutual Insurance Voice enabled Virtual Assistants in Liberty Mutual Insurance’s Call Centres are handling 160k+ calls per month with zero call time queueing and 100% reliability, saving the business millions of dollars.

It is widely reported that staff turnover in the call centre industry is around 26% annually, considerably above the national average of 15%. This has a commercial impact on every single business. Losing staff effects your bottom line and in some ways your business becomes a ‘short-term’ fix for employees as they begin their journey on the employment ladder.

Liberty Mutual Insurance Case Study: Voice Enabled Virtual Assistants are Transforming the Traditional Call Centre

Micro Scooters UK Case Study: Putting the Customer at the Centre – How Micro Scooters set out to Genuinely Help its Customers Ben Gibson, Managing Director, Micro Scooters UK Customer centricity has been the buzzword for years now. But what are the proven tactics and projects undertaken by SMEs that actually allow this to happen? The thoughts and projects that will make a positive difference to company performance and customer loyalty. Hear from Micro Scooters who have embraced their customers and have a story to tell.


Case studies include:

Why Diversity is Critical to the Success of a Contact Centre Gifty Enright, Author, Speaker, Women in the Workplace Expert, Giftyenright.com Failing to attract, retain and get the most from the available resource pool is like doing business with one hand tied behind your back. Contact centres suffer from high staff turnover which is expensive, inefficient and highly disruptive to performance. Contact centres will reap fast and long-term rewards by investing in diversity. Not investing in this valuable change, risks your business being left behind.

Barnsley Council Case Study: Work is an Activity not a Location! Lisa Blackburn, Customer Experience Manager, Barnsley Council Barnsley Council’s Customer Service Centre has embarked on a journey to create a fully agile workforce who has the capabilities to work anywhere at any time, thanks to the adoption of new technology and a wider cultural change programme. Work is no longer seen as something you have to complete in a building – but is something you can do whilst in the comfort of your own home (perfect in the winter weather when travelling can be a challenge), in a library, partnership building and sometimes in your favourite coffee shop! The presentation will walk through why the change had to happen, the key drivers for change, an high-level guidance on how to deliver an agile workforce, along with detailing key considerations before embarking on a similar journey. Concluding with an outline of the short, medium and long terms impacts of agile working.

Bob Stella, Operational Effectiveness Manager, KBC Bank Ireland In this fast paced presentation, Bob Stella shares some of the key considerations behind his new department, what it means to work in the contact centre of the future, our role in preparing our colleagues for it and how KBC’s pioneering collaboration between Planning, MI and Training will help them achieve this.

This talk will show you why Contact Centres need to invest in diversity, and as a result: • Keep your best talent • Become a magnet for new and engaged talent • Reap the benefits of a diverse and dynamic workforce. It will also give you a fresh and innovative perspective on diversity as tool to grow and enhance your contact centre. You will learn from this thought-provoking session: • The business case for diversity • How you to develop and maintain a diverse workforce • The rewards you and your business will reap by investing this business change.

KBC Bank Ireland Case Study: Developing our future colleagues

Bought By Many Case Study: Listening to customers and colleagues alike to become the UK’s most Trusted Pet Insurer Alexander King, Head of Customer Support, Bought By Many I used to be a CSE, it is a challenging role. • Customer can get stressed – they are not in control. • Customers want to be heard – we must listen. • CSEs can get stressed – they are not in control. • CSEs want to be heard – are we listening? Back when I first started, wrap-codes, marketing codes & refund reasons represented the full extent of VOC capture. Fast forward to 2020 and many of us will be balancing multichannel contact centres, including social media & review site responses. At BBM we cover XXX channels. Working on various systems isn’t ideal. However, we have ensured that VOC is captured across channel – explain tech, explain CX journey. Crucially we have open channels for VOE to be capture, mirroring that of the VOC – explain process, explain tech Prioritisation of development request are taken from VOC & VOE. In Customer Support we can’t dictate the businesses next steps. However, we CAN ensure it hears and listens to not only it’s customer but employees alike – as we often find, they are asking for the same thing. By listening in this way, we continue to develop Better Insurance, For Everyone. And along the way we are achieving high NPS score from both customers and CSE alike.

"The best contact centre focused event I've ever been to - I'd recommend it to anyone!" Head of Customer Experience, Bupa

13 FEBRUARY 2020

Now in its 5th year the conference returns for 2020 Contact centres remain well placed to become the beating heart of an organisation’s customer engagement strategy. It is the contact centre that can deliver the customer insight that is needed in a business environment where our customers are in control of how they choose to interact with organisations and where the so called ‘customer journey’ is ever more complex. The chief aim of the 2020 conference is for delegates to go back to their organisations armed with all the tools, strategies and techniques they need to deliver successful contact centre strategies in this brave new technology driven customer centric world.
