Creating effective and memorable customer experience (CX) isn’t as easy as flipping a switch. In fact, even the best technologies fall flat without a well-reasoned strategic plan.

That was a key takeaway from the recent Arke CX Summit.

Held at Atlanta’s beautiful Buckhead Club on March 29, the event attracted dozens of industry professionals interested in better customer experiences.

Thought Provoking Insights

The summit included a series of high impact sessions and roundtable discussions. All of them gave attendees actionable takeaways and thought-provoking insights about the rapid evolution of CX.

We had a great line-up of speakers, including:

  1. Ellen Adair Wyche, women’s leadership and programs expert
  2. Ashish Bisaria, change and innovation and customer experience C-level leader at FLEETCOR
  3. Bryan Hardman, corporate director, interactive marketing at Herschend Family Entertainment
  4. Patrick Kelly, associate vice president of emerging technologies at USAA Financial
  5. Darren Press, global creative director at Travel Leaders Group

(That’s Ellen and Ashish conversing at the CX Summit in the photo, above.)
