Customers The Day After Tomorrow

Winning customers in a world of AI, bots and automation.

We are entering the third phase of digitization where artificial intelligence will raise the bar in terms of customer experience. Customer experience is evolving from a mobile-first to an AI-first business. For customers this is the start of the most exciting phase ever. They will enjoy benefits like hyper-personalization, faster than real-time customer service and the most user-friendly interfaces ever seen. In his NEW keynote, Steven describes how to invest in the customer experience of the day after tomorrow.

When Digital Becomes Human

About the transformation of customer relationships.

There is an urgent need for an extreme transformation of the customer relationship. Customers live in a world of self-service, big data, customer automation and the integration of the online & offline world. Failing to implement the digital relationship puts your company’s future on the line. A successful digital transformation is key, but it will not be enough. Due to the digital evolution, your customer relations need to change on a human level as well.

The offer you can’t refuse

The future of customer experience is about digital, empathy and taking responsibility.

This last decade has been characterized by the introduction of 4G, social media and mobile services. These technologies have given rise to a new minimum in terms of customer experience. Customers expect ease of use, friendly and empathic staff, omnichannel services and competitive prices. In the years to come, customer experience will reach a whole new level.

Naturally, technology (5G, quantum computing, robotics and AI) will play a key role in customer expectations, but it goes way beyond that. Invisible and automatic interfaces will become a necessity but the ultimate ease of use will no longer be enough to come out on top. Automation is but the first step. In addition, companies will have to play an active role in their customers’ life journey. As a company how can you help consumers’ dreams come true and eliminate the obstacles in their day-to-day lives? And finally, companies have the opportunity to tackle concrete world problems together with the customer.

Customer Experience in the age of AI Platforms

How will an ‘always-on’ personal assistant transform your daily life?

We are at the beginning of a new S-Curve that is set to change the way we live and work, forever. Technologies like Artificial Intelligence are only just getting started, so the key question for all companies is: what will the second half of the curve look like?

In this presentation, Steven explores some fascinating scenarios that will shape the future of branding, go-to-market strategies and innovation. How will an ‘always-on’ personal assistant transform your daily life? How will changing customer behaviour disrupt your business? Take a journey to the Day After Tomorrow and see how some of the latest emerging technologies will change the world
