A warm welcome to our ﬁfth Customer Engagement Summit, now ﬁrmly established as Europe’s premier and most highly regarded customer and employee engagement conference. Our ﬂagship Summit has gained a reputation for delivering leading-edge world class case-study led content in a business-like yet informal atmosphere which is conducive to delegate, speaker and sponsor networking. It’s a place both to learn and to do business. The overarching theme of this year’s Summit is ‘Technology the Great Enabler’ as we continue to recognise the critical role that new technologies and innovations are playing in the ﬁelds of customer and employee engagement.
Dan Keen Delegate Sales E: firstname.lastname@example.org T: 01932 506 306
We have several new elements to further improve this year’s Summit – not least our move to this new bigger venue, the iconic London Westminster Bridge Park Plaza Hotel following on from four hugely successful Summits at the London Victoria Park Plaza.
James Hitchinson Delegate Sales E: email@example.com T: 01932 506 305

These additions and improvements are all designed to enhance the customer experience enjoyed by delegates, speakers and sponsors attending the Summit. Yet another ﬁrst is that this year’s Summit is being held on the same day and at the same venue as our inaugural Engage Awards – the only customer and employee engagement Awards programme. The chief aim of this Summit is for our delegates to go back to their organisations armed with all the tools, strategies and techniques they need to deliver successful long term customer and employee engagement strategies to create and maintain sustainable competitive advantage. Have a great day. Steve Hurst, Editorial Director, Engage Business Media

Customer Journeys, Loyalty and Neuroscience
Big Data — The Case for Customer Experience
Proven methodology and lessons learnt from 50+ implementations.
Neuroscience has increased our awareness and understanding of a state called cognitive overwhelm.
Come and discuss how organisations are striving to gain a better understanding of their customers, to provide an excellent customer journey, build brand loyalty, and remain competitive. Feedback is fuel to evolving the customer experience (CX).
• Structuring your VoC-related business objectives • Identifying the operational levers to be activated to reach them • Designing the most suitable VoC programme: • The survey approach: targets and volumes, media, questionnaires and indicators • How customer feedback should be communicated throughout the organisation • How customer feedback should lead to actual CX improvements and further customer engagements • Key implementation success factors • How to get fast results? • How to ensure sustainable value creation?
• Today we are bombarded with a huge amount of ‘data’ every second. There is no way anyone can process all of this. • The more that is required from us to do something, the less we are likely to engage. • So, how can you optimise customer engagement in this new world of cognitive overwhelm? • What channels seem more appropriate in different everyday situations and for different market segments?
But as those volumes swing between declining structured feedback and increasing unstructured social commentary, there is a an overwhelming pressure to utilise the vast amounts of customer data held across all business units. Harness big data and federate it into effective CX programmes and your organisation also moves to precise predictive modelling, understanding customers’ wishes, before they are even aware of it.

Registration & Coffee Introduction from Summit Chair - ‘Technology the Great Enabler’ Mike Havard, Director, Ember Services Mike has had 25+ years leading and growing businesses. Originally a cosmetic scientist he moved into operations management, HR leadership and then as a senior professional in customer management strategy, operational delivery and leadership roles with organisations including BT, The Decisions Group, Sitel, CM Insight and Verint. He is a founding director of Ember, a business services group focused on service strategies across channels (digital, voice and retail) and performance transformation, outsourcing and contract advice, analytics and recruitment – helping organisations to determine ‘what better is’. He has also held various Non-Executive Director and advisory roles in organisations ranging from anti-fraud technologies to e-learning and employee engagement tools. He is an Honorary Life Fellow of the IDM. He has authored management textbooks in customer management, and has had many thought leading papers published. Mike has also been an advisor to government departments, nationally and internationally, and has advised many UK and global brands including John Lewis, M&S, Toyota, Microsoft, Barclays, RSA and Virgin. He also likes to escape and do dangerous things in the mountains occasionally. (But likes it better when he comes back!)
Opening Keynote: Timpson Case Study – The Secret Behind Amazing Service John Timpson, Chairman, Timpson John Timpson is happy to be called a maverick, a description earned through his unconventional approach to management. But John runs his business in a unique way for very good reasons. In this session he will explain why he abandoned ordinary business principles to help give his customers an amazing service and create a company culture based on common sense. John Timpson was educated at Oundle and Nottingham University. The Timpson family business was taken over in 1973, but 10 years later John led a £42m management buyout. In 1987 he sold the shoe shops and concentrated on building the shoe repairing and key cutting business, which has diversiﬁed into engraving, watch repairs, dry cleaning and photo processing. Timpson now has over 1600 branches nationwide, including the Max Spielmann and Snappy Snaps brands and a successful Timpson Locksmiths business. The Group has a turnover of over £200m and proﬁts of over £25m. It is a private business wholly owned by John Timpson and his family. Timpson is recognised for its creative approach to employee engagement and innovative work helping ex-offenders – it is the UK’s most active employer of people from prison. Recently widowed, John Timpson was married to his wife Alex for 47 years. He has ﬁve children Victoria (47), James (45), Edward (42), together with Oliver (40) and Henry (29). John and his wife were also foster carers for 31 years, during which time they fostered 90 children. In 2000 he wrote ‘Dear James,’ which passes on to his son James, now Timpson’s CEO, the lessons learned in 25 years as a Chief Executive. A management maverick, he describes his business philosophy in ‘How to Ride a Giraffe’, ‘Upside Down Management’ and ‘Ask John’. His latest book ‘High Street Heroes’ was published in 2015.
Curating Your Customer Engagement Ecosystem Amit Shankardass, Global Marketing Executive, Teleperformance Our customers’ pace of adoption is driving critical changes to our customer engagement technologies, processes, and data management. The game is changing, and we have to change with it. In this session we will discuss how a service provider can be the enabler for brands on their journey to achieving true omnichannel customer experience and its beneﬁts. As curators of the necessary solutions, platforms and process methodologies required, they can offer ﬂexibility and scaleability underpinned by rigorous governance and resilient infrastructure. With a focus on thinking like a customer, Amit brings a tenured history in the Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) arena having served in multiple roles in strategic planning, marketing, sales, product development and operations with leading global service providers. In his current role of Executive Vice President of Marketing for Teleperformance, he is responsible for leading all aspects of marketing programmes and communications, product innovation, business intelligence, sales enablement, public relations and other associated go-to-market activities for the company’s English Speaking and Asia Paciﬁc Markets. His focus is on the understanding of customer experiences and the alignment of engagement strategies to meet these emerging needs. Most recently, he served as the Chief Marketing Ofﬁcer at leading BPO organisations Sitel and Alorica. Previously Amit served strategic planning, product development, and corporate marketing for the desktop support service product line of DecisionOne. He started his career serving in various business development and corporate marketing leadership roles for QuickStart Technologies, a Microsoft Certiﬁed Partner.

KEYNOTE STAGE 09:5010:10
Opening Keynote: M&S Case Study – Making Every Moment Special For Colleagues and Customers Jo Moran, Head of Customer Experience, M&S We often hear about the importance of mobile technology in today’s customer experience, and here at M&S we have been working on how we bring mobile devices into the work place for our colleagues to help them do their job and deliver a better customer experience.
In her position as Head of Customer Service, she played a fundamental role in leading the recovery of the brand’s service ethos through establishing a clear customer proposition supported by the appropriate structure, recruitment, training, performance management and reward mechanisms. Jo was able to achieve this transformation through strong stakeholder engagement and communication and a relentless approach to doing the right thing for customers. Jo attributes the success of this work in part to developing a clear plan and evolving this over time rather than trying too many different initiatives which had been the previous approach. Until recently, Jo was also the Chair of Governors for a local primary school, where she took an active role in bringing her business skills to use in a different ﬁeld. She has more recently been appointed as a Non-Executive Director for a Housing Association based in Kent, where she is looking to bring her customer experience knowledge to bear in a different sector. In 2003 Jo graduated with Distinction from a part time MBA course at Aston Business School and is regularly asked to speak about customer service at external events.
Opening Keynote: Domino’s Case Study: Staying Ahead in a Changing Marketplace With Disruptive Entrants David Wild, Chief Executive, Domino’s Pizza Group The Fast Food market is evolving rapidly. Customers’ quest for quality, convenience and value mean that there are good sales opportunities, but the choice of providers is vast. To make matters more challenging for incumbents, technology has enabled new web-based entrants to join the fray. More recently, delivery aggregator specialists have added to the roster of brands available to consumers. Through this transition, Domino’s Pizza has emerged a a winning player by investing and innovating. David’s presentation will review the story of the last few years and highlight some of the lessons learnt. David is currently Chief Executive of Domino’s Pizza Group plc. He is a Non-Executive Director of the multi-channel consultancy Practicology and also Bankers’ Investment Trust. Previously, David was Chief Executive Ofﬁcer of Halfords Group plc and held senior roles within Walmart Stores Inc., Tesco Stores plc and RHM Foods Limited.
Coffee & Networking Break
During her 25 years’ experience with M&S, Jo has progressed through a varied range of roles including store management, franchise arrangements and overseas operations, change management programmes and, most latterly, customer service across all channels for the M&S UK operation.

CUSTOMER ENGAGEMENT TRANSFORMATION, PART ONE 11:0011:20
02 Case Study: Surprise & Delight: What Is It and Why Do We Do It? Kal Durand, Social Engagement Specialist, O2 How and why O2 engage with customers in a way that is unexpected, creating memorable experiences that are worth sharing.
Having worked for O2 for the last decade I have been an integral part of the social media team for the past 4 years. I have been involved in everything from reputation management to proactive and reactive engagement. At O2 we try to take an innovative approach to improving the customer experience, something I feel all brands must strive to do in such a competitive and crowded space.
1st Central Case Study: Using Knowledge to Help You Deliver an Outstanding Customer Experience Gary Lucas, Head of Customer Experience, 1st Central Hear how 1st Central is using knowledge to differentiate the business in a crowded market place and deliver great service throughout the customer journey. Gary will be discussing why 1st Central selected a knowledgebase, how it was implemented, the beneﬁts that 1st Central are receiving as a result and further areas that use of the knowledgebase could be extended into. Born in Cyprus to British Forces parents, I spent 6 of my ﬁrst 11 years living in different countries, before settling in Surrey. I left school at 18 and like so many, sort of fell into insurance for what was then Sun Alliance, based in Croydon. At 21 I chose to become a Telesales agent for a new insurance start up (Royal Bank of Scotland Group Insurance Company Limited) which subsequently became Direct Line. Over the years I progressed to Assistant Motor Underwriting Manager, sitting on the ABI Group Rating Panel, before taking a 6-month secondment in 1997 based in Edinburgh with Tesco Personal Finance to help launch their Motor product. The 6 months lasted 4 years, before returning to Direct Line as the Online Sales Manager for Car Insurance. Over the next few years, online sales increased, as did my areas of responsibility and ultimately I looked after the entire online customer journey for Direct Line products. In 2008 I joined Allianz as part of a new team to help develop and deliver new Car & Home insurance products for their Direct business; these launched in 2010 & 2011 respectively. Not long after I was looking for a new challenge and so joined 1st CENTRAL in 2012 as Head of Customer Experience. And it’s been a rollercoaster of a ride ever since.
Virgin Care Case Study: It’s Not What We Say Or Do, It’s How We Make People Feel Michelle Hawkins, Head of Futures, & Simon Lucas, Head of Communications and Marketing, Virgin Care An insight into the culture of Virgin Care and how they engage colleagues and patients to deliver experiences where people feel the difference I’ve spent my career trying to understand people and what makes them happy. I’m constantly scouting the globe for examples and ideas of how to design better healthcare services and better lives. This journey has taken me to Virgin Care – a truly innovative organisation which delivers health and social care services that make a difference to peoples’ lives every day. As Head of Futures, I look for ways to solve the challenges of today and to meet the opportunities of tomorrow, focusing all the time on innovation that delivers high value and transforms services. I feel very lucky to be part of an organisation that is changing the face of healthcare in the UK and which recognises that great experiences are all about how you make people feel. After working in Parliament and policy, Simon worked in public affairs at a leading Westminster consultancy for clients across a range of service delivery sectors including Virgin Care. This experience, alongside a broader interest in customer service, lead to Simon joining Virgin Care full time where he has taken on increasing responsibility; ﬁrst for how the organisation communicates with stakeholders and, more recently, for customer service and experience.

Evolution: The Convergence of Customer and Employee Engagement Claire Sporton, VP, Customer Experience Management, Conﬁrmit Many organisations have a Voice of the Employee programme and a Voice of the Customer programme, each at different stages of maturity. However, it is rare to see organisations that have evolved their VoC and VoE into an aligned programme. Often these programmes will sit in different parts of the organisation and never the twain shall meet. In this session Conﬁrmit will predict that the Evolution of Voice of the Customer will be dependent on the convergence of these two separate programmes. We will also offer some guidance for those organisations ready to make the leap to the next level in VoC and VoE success. Claire has specialised in customer feedback for well over 15 years. Claire has run programmes in the Financial Services sector, and more recently supported a wide range of organisations in the development and implementation of programmes that not only drive improvement in customer experience but deliver measurable business results.

NHS 24/Macmillan Trust Case Study: Delivering Personalised On-Line Health Information – The Movement From Paper To Digital Kevin Hutchison, Macmillan National Strategy Manager, NHS 24 Health information within the NHS has traditionally been disseminated via hard copy leaﬂets and booklets, with little done to track the movement towards “Digital First” approaches.

Museum of London Case Study: Market Forces – How The Customer Journey Took a Museum Up a Different Street Antony Robbins, Director of Communications, Museum of London
Director of Communications Antony Robbins will tell us how getting into the shoes of its customers made the museum re-consider its offer, sharpen its brand and develop its content. Thinking like a consumer brand and putting customers at the heart of everything made the museum look again at its very location. As a result, a brand new museum for London will open its doors in West Smithﬁeld in 2022. This will re-cast the museum’s entire relationship with London and Londoners. Antony Robbins, 52, is the Director of Communications at the Museum of London and Museum of London Docklands. He joined as the organisation opened its £22m Galleries of Modern London in 2010. The museum’s focus is on becoming better known and reaching more people and it has invested considerably in digital technology. Its awardwinning StreetMuseum app and ﬁlms on YouTube have helped connect it to a cooler, more contemporary London audience. This has both helped shape the museum’s brand and build its visitor numbers. The museum now has plans to leave its current site. By 2022 it will open up a state-of-the-art new museum just up the road in London’s nearby West Smithﬁeld. Much of Antony’s career has been in international relief and development. He worked at the UK government’s Department of International Development and for aid agency CARE International. His role took him across Latin America, Asia, the Balkans and sub-Saharan Africa. Antony was born in London – the city he still calls home.

Taking The Offensive: Working Together to Disrupt Digital Crime Luke Beeson, Vice President, Security UK and Global Banking & Financial Markets, BT Organisations around the world are more aware of cyber crime than ever. They know just how dangerous new and emerging cyber threats can be to their businesses. So why do so many of them feel helpless to prevent a major security breach? Luke Beeson takes the view that businesses must think about the psychology of cybercrime in order to best equip themselves to defend against and avoid being victims of cybercrime. The ﬁrst step is to understand the digital criminal in terms of motive, modus operandi and how they intend to proﬁt. The next step is to turn that understanding into a cohesive and effective response. Using ﬁve central themes Luke will explore the emerging landscape and provide recommendations on the best way to disrupt the digital criminals. His recommendations will be based on his experience of protecting BT, from the often forgotten ﬁrst principles of information security, to advanced capability in managed security services. Luke Beeson is Vice President of Security for BTs UK and Global Banking and Financial Markets customers. He is a Chartered Engineer and member of the Institute of Engineering and Technology.

IBM Watson Case Study: Conversational Engagement Through AI Dale Lane, IBM Watson Developer, IBM An introduction to the customer engagement possibilities enabled by artiﬁcial intelligence. Conversational UI is the next generation of user interface. When consumers talk to retailers, or their bank, or their airline, or their utility providers – they will expect their questions to be answered in a natural chat interface. Their questions will be answered through a combination of artiﬁcial intelligence, machine learning and analytics, and human agents when needed. The consumer will be able to choose the messaging app they use to interact with companies, rather than being tied to brand-speciﬁc apps. And their conversational interactions will be a crucial factor in how these companies and brands are perceived. I’m an engineer of IBM Watson, the questionanswering system that was unveiled in 2011 on the US TV quiz show Jeopardy! I’m a developer responsible for our approach to understanding why Watson generates the answers that it does, as we work to bring the Research achievement to industries from healthcare to ﬁnancial services.
Chair’s Closing Remarks Martin Hill-Wilson, Founder, Brainfood Consulting
Martin is a leading customer engagement and digital business strategist. Also an author and international keynote speaker. Working under my own brand, Brainfood Consulting, I design masterclasses and transformational change helping clients evolve their social and digital capabilities. Current topics include omnichannel design, proactive, low eﬀort customer experience, social customer service and customer hubs. All themed around service innovation. Even service organisations that consider themselves advanced in their omnichannel capabilities face the barrier of internal silos and competing agendas. This remains a strategic weakness in terms of real time responsiveness. Digitally empowered customers have reset the bar on acceptable customer experience. Organisations that want to prosper in this new regime have to adopt a new mindset and leadership capabilities. But how to escape the days of siloed customer engagement and the idea that the service organisation was solely responsible for customer experience. Today, market leadership means taking a fresh approach to continuous improvement and service innovation: re energised through new partnerships with customers and employees. Customer hubs provide a low risk evolutionary path. The hubs draw together a number of competencies into a new form of working relationship. This includes the front oﬃce (sales, marketing, service), analytics, change management and collaboration. Together they become a hub of innovation, improvement and competitive responsiveness for the rest of the organisation.

Digital Needs the Human Touch Sandra Galer, Consulting Director, Merchants All indicators are that digitalisation is on the increase and for a number of years there has been talk about how automation will change the face of customer management. Some people have already predicted that robots will take over and one on one human interaction will become a thing of the past, however, if we look at the landscape as a customer, which we all are, can you really visualise never needing to speak to a person to resolve all of your queries ever again? The answer is no, and that as much as customers and organisations want automation and self-service, there are points when only a human will do.
With that in mind, how do we retain the human touch and truly integrate digital into our service provision? There is a ﬁne balance between automation and making it impossible for one to one communication. The indicators are that it is a ﬁne balancing act that we as providers to customers need to master to ensure a seamless experience and ensure that customers keep coming back for more. As Consulting Director for Merchants, Sandra’s broad operational expertise combined with an analytical mind enables her to oﬀer unique insights and practical solutions to clients that need to optimise customer service to achieve their goals for growth. Since starting her career as a call centre agent 24 years ago, Sandra has held a wide range of operational customer management roles that include setting up and running contact centres for international clients around the globe. Leading a team of experienced consultants, she is responsible for consulting support and advice, sales and the delivery of high quality customer service management solutions that work in the real world. With over 20 years’ consulting and operational experience gained across a wide range of industries in the UK, Ireland, United States and South Africa, Sandra is passionate about customer service. Using a pragmatic approach, she is committed to showing businesses how they can beneﬁt from customer service excellence through credible best practice expertise, practical experience and operational insights.
Tesco Case Study: Serving Britain’s Shoppers a Little Better Every Day Helen Gales, Customer Service Director, Tesco An insight into how Tesco have reconnected and empowered colleagues through their Making Moments Matter programme to ‘Serve Britain’s shoppers a little better every day.’ Helen Gales has been the Customer Service Director for Tesco PLC since 2012 leading the service strategy.

Helen has been responsible for Tesco’s improvement in customer experience satisfaction, ensuring that each of the 2000 stores not only operates from a functional service aspect; such as not queuing at checkouts; but bringing the strategy to life by emotionally
connecting colleagues to customers. To do this, Helen was instrumental in the service culture change within the organisation. She created a programme that focussed on reshaping 6 key parts of the business with a brand new way of engaging colleagues. Helen’s strategy has evolved more recently, helping the wider business; Tesco Bank, Tesco Mobile, Call Centres, Dotcom; to truly provide a consistently helpful and friendly multi-channel experience.

Trentbarton Case Study: Talking with our Customers – Whatever Next! Jeff Counsell, Managing Director, Trentbarton Following years of decline whilst in public ownership, the UK’s public transport system was privatised and deregulated in 1986. At this point, the management and employees at Trent Buses forged a buy-out of the Company to take it into private ownership and forward into the new, open, market. Just three years later a second company, Barton Buses, was purchased by the MBO. Today, these companies, operating across the East Midlands region and trading as trentbarton, are highly regarded in the UK transport sector for the quality of service provided and ﬁnancial performance.
Customer engagement together with an intense focus on customer service have been and continue to be at the heart of this transformation.

Future Of The Contact Centre – “It’s All About The Journey” Russell Attwood, Business Development Director, Unify Communications The way consumers choose to engage with their suppliers is ever changing, expectations are sky high and the tolerance threshold for poor service is wafer thin… The key challenge the Contact Centre Industry faces is “How does it meet those expectations?”, whilst Contact Centre UK has a skilled & motivated workforce, the question is, does it have the “tools to do the job?”. Invariably the answer to the question is “we need a transformation project”, but wholesale change isn’t feasible or practical for many organisations and so the transformation journey begins. Customer Experience in 2025 will undoubtedly feel very different to how it does today, so how do you get there, what steps need to take place and in what order. Clearly technology will play its part and in many cases the technology landscape will need to change to support you on your journey. My presentation will give real life examples of organisations delivering an engaging customer experience today and with a roadmap to ensure they keep ahead of consumer demands. Russell is a contact centre industry veteran. He founded his former company, Call Centre Technology (CCT), in 1997 to oﬀer technology transformation as the world of the call centre transitioned into the contact centres we recognise today. Capita recognised the expertise represented by CCT’s 200 employees and acquired the company in 2011 to form a foundation stone of Capita IT Services. Refreshed and energised after a short break, Russell launched Unify Communications in 2013. He identiﬁed the emergence of cloudbased technologies (SaaS) and the innovations such software products bring to the contact centre in order to transform customer experience for all organisations, not just the larger brands. As the CEO of Unify Communications, he guides his experienced team on CX transformation projects for organisations both nationally and internationally. Russell is passionate about customer engagement, and enjoys providing his customers with industryleading innovation & support throughout their journey.

But, in increasingly complex organisations, it is vital to create consistency, but at the same time empower employees to be spontaneous, ﬂexible and personalised. We will use examples from companies like Disney, Premier Inn and Burberry to illustrate how giving employees freedom within a framework can be one of the most powerful weapons to deploy in the competition for customer experience. Dr. Simon Moore is a Chartered Business and Consumer Psychologist and partner with the award winning psychological insight and behaviour change consultancy, Innovationbubble. Simon and his team help wellknown global brands uncover the practical psychological inﬂuences on engagement, purchase, trust and loyalty. Simon is an author and regularly presents at international conferences on the psychology and behaviour of customer experience. He is an advisor to the UK and US governments, and frequently appears on the TV and radio and in the press discussing consumer psychology and behavioural intervention.

Getting The Balance Between User Experience and Customer Experience Right Adam Charlesworth, Leadership Consultant & Educator There are no hard and fast rules that dictate how companies go about building world-class customer engagement nowadays. Some ﬁrms have invested in tech-heavy solutions that put power in the hands of a new generation of users, betting on the appeal of the user experience. Others have become recognised leaders in delivering excellence through the contact points that deﬁne high-touch customer experience. The great news is that there’s no need for trade-off between these two approaches – both are valid, both deliver great results when done properly by the best in the business. What is tricky for any organisation is getting the balance between user experience and customer experience right and keeping the customer engagement proposition fresh and compelling. To help meet this challenge, the Académie du Service has developed a model that adds a third critical component to the UX/CX mix. We believe this extra lever could be the silver bullet for those companies wanting to take their customer engagement performance to the next level. Adam Charlesworth is a leadership consultant and educator who for more than ﬁfteen years has been helping managers at all levels across a wide range of industries think more clearly and creatively about their service culture, their client orientation and what their organisations, their teams, and most importantly, their customers, really want from them. A longtime collaborator with the Academie du Service here in the UK and throughout the world, Adam has also built, developed and led Corporate Universities and leadership development initiatives for bluechip companies in Europe, the Americas and Asia.
Winning Attitudes: What Does it Take to be Successful? Dr. Amanda Potter, CEO, Zircon Management Consulting Ltd & Goldie Sayers, Former UK Champion Javelin Thrower Zircon Management Consulting have interviewed 42 high ﬂying CEO’s, Entrepreneurs, Media Personalities and Olympians, such a Sir Clive Woodward, Jacqueline Gold CBE and Mark Foster, to identify the critical ingredients for achieving unprecedented success. They discovered that it is more than luck or intelligence; it is about having a Winning Attitude. Dr Amanda Potter and Goldie Sayers, Javelin Olympian, invite you to explore the 10 characteristics that make up a Winning Attitude, such as Burning Ambition and Unwavering Belief, bringing them to life with key insights from the experiences of the interviewees. The session will also present how you can identify the winners within your team and organisation to ensure employee engagement and improve customer experience. Amanda is a Chartered Occupational Psychologist with over 20 years’ experience in Talent Management and Engagement. Amanda is an Associate Fellow of the Division of Occupational Psychology within the British Psychological Society (BPS) and is both a Chartered Scientist and a Chartered Occupational Psychologist. Amanda has international experience working at board level and has been involved with talent system design and implementation since 1993.
THE EVOLUTION OF CX SERVICE DESIGN 16:3016:50
Case Studies from Virgin, Fidelity and Bupa: When (And When Not) to Use Customer Experience Design Sean Risebrow, Director of Customer Experience, Bupa Great companies get the experience right by design and not by luck. But the secret to success isn’t in the development of great blueprints. The value to the customer, and the value to the business, comes when the designed experience is delivered consistently by the organisation for customers. So the session will focus on when (and when not!) to use customer experience design and how to ensure its adopted so that organisations really do make a difference in the daily lives of employees and customers.
Threetime Olympian, World and European Championship ﬁnalist and 11 time UK Champion, Goldie dominates her event and is one of athletics’ most popular ambassadors. In Athens in 2004 she was the youngest member of Team GB. In Beijing in 2008 she ﬁnished fourth, missing a podium place by just 38cm. In the runup to the London Olympics she conﬁrmed her position as a medal prospect when she broke her own British record at the Crystal Palace Grand Prix with an opening throw of 66.17m which put her in world leader position just three weeks before the start of the London Games. But elation turned to agony as an elbow injury, sustained during the Crystal Palace competition, destroyed her chance of reaching the 2012 Olympic ﬁnal.
As Director of Customer Experience Sean led the transformation of Virgin Media’s customer experience from its launch in 2007 until its acquisition by Liberty Global in 2013. The turnaround in the quality of experience has been by quoted by analysts as a key element in the $5 to $53 increase in share price, during which the customers’ view of the experience changed from bottom quartile to industry lead. Sean is one of a few Senior Executives that has successfully led an organisation through the four recognised stages to Customer Experience Maturity – Fix, Deliver, Diﬀerentiate and Delight. Sean worked for Fidelity Worldwide Investment in February 2014, and in January of 2015 joined NewsUK, the publishers of The Times, The Sunday Times and The Sun where he was responsible for the Customer Experience, Member Service and Customer Event teams. Sean has recently joined BUPA as their Director of Customer Experience.
Donor Experience Case Study: Using Disruption to Change the Behaviour of a Whole Industry Richard Spencer, Director for the Commission, Donor Experience Have you ever crossed the street to avoid a charity fundraiser? Over the last year or so, there has been a number of news stories portraying charities as greedy and inefﬁcient. Much of the focus has been on aggressive or hard-sell fundraising techniques. These practices have emerged from charities struggling to meet the growing needs of a wide range of social and environmental crises. The current model is unsustainable and could result in a set of blunt regulatory interventions that frankly just make things worse. The Commission on the Donor Experience believes there is a different way and is building a movement of the enlightened and/or experienced to re-write together a new approach to charity supporter engagement. The goal is to transform fundraising, to change the culture to a supporter-based approach to raising money. Richard Spencer is director for the Commission on the Donor Experience and has held leadership roles in fundraising since 2003. He is passionate about and believes in the power of social capital to bring about change – through action and fundraising. He has worked in this space with a number of charities to bring supporters and their needs to the centre of thinking. He has been a trustee at Raleigh International, nonexec director (fundraising) for Goalball UK and was head of supporter development at the RSPB for over ten years.

Customer Journeys, Loyalty and Neuroscience
JOIN THE GROUP AND DISCUSS.. Neuroscience has increased our awareness and understanding of a state called cognitive overwhelm. Today we are bombarded with a huge amount of ‘data’ every second. There is no way anyone can process all of this. The more that is required from us to do something, the less we are likely to engage.
So, how can you optimise customer engagement in this new world of cognitive overwhelm? What channels seem more appropriate in different everyday situations and for different market segments? In this session, we will be presenting our new 2016 primary research on customer channels of choice followed by the latest results in our loyalty programme case study with Vodafone. Join the discussion to discover the steps you need to put in place to make this a reality, by working with experts in this ﬁeld you can shine the spotlight of attention on the things that strengthen your brand and customer engagement.

Big Data — The Case for Customer Experience
BOOK NOW Andrew Smith
JOIN THE GROUP AND DISCUSS.. Proven methodology and lessons learnt from 50+ implementations. Come and discuss how organisations are striving to gain a better understanding of their customers, to provide an excellent customer journey, build brand loyalty, and remain competitive. Feedback is fuel to evolving the customer experience (CX). But as those volumes swing between declining structured feedback and increasing unstructured social commentary, there is a an overwhelming pressure to utilise the vast amounts of customer data held across all business units. Harness big data and federate it into effective CX programmes and your organisation also moves to precise predictive modelling, understanding customers’ wishes, before they are even aware of it.
