Leaders Learning From Leaders at Insights-Driven, One-Day Event Focused on Customer Success

April 10, 2017 – Following the recent release of the 2016 Customer Experience Management Benchmark (CXMB) Series Corporate Edition, Execs In The Know and COPC Inc. will be in Sunnyvale, California, on April 19, 2017, to host a CXMB Workshop. This exclusive, one-day event will be held at LinkedIn and offers customer experience professionals the chance to gather and share their challenges, successes and insights, while also making lasting connections in their local area.

The highlights of both the 2016 Consumer and Corporate Edition reports will be discussed in depth by COPC.

A few highlights from the findings:

– Although consumer opinion towards customer care has improved, gaps between consumer and corporate perception remain

– Preference for and use of Traditional Care slips, Email surprises and Mobile Care shines

– Consumer preference for live interactions over automated interactions remains strong, but companies continue to shift care away from live interactions and into automated channels

– Forced channel changes have a negative impact on both resolution and satisfaction rates

The featured speakers at the Workshop will be Scott Shute, VP of Global Customer Operations and Mark Quinn, Senior Director, Product Operations at LinkedIn. Scott is also a valued member of the 2017 Execs In The Know Corporate Advisory Board. Their keynote will focus on the Voice of the Customer at LinkedIn, how to best understand the needs of your customers, and tailor your customer experience.

In addition to the featured speakers highlighted above, there will also be presentations from subject matter experts on “Transforming From Customer Support to Customer Success” and “Keys for Personalized, Effortless Omnichannel Journeys”.
