Building a Customer Experience Strategy: The Essentials
12:00pm - 1:00pm EST
Every interaction with a customer represents a “moment of truth” that either strengthens or harms the customer’s perception of your brand and firm. Customers now interact with firms through a myriad of touchpoints, multiple channels, and experiences are more social in nature. Customer experience management is one of the most important strategic priorities for firms as it affects customer satisfaction, loyalty, and firm performance. Join us for this webinar, hosted by Ivy Exec and led by PhD. Melissa Baker, an Associate Professor in the Department of Hospitality & Tourism Management at the Isenberg School of Management at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, as we discuss the importance of managing the customer experience journey both in person and online as well as current strategies for firms to improve the customer experience.
