10 Speakers Who Will Help Your Audience Become More Customer-Centric

Client relationships have changed dramatically over the past decade as new technologies have allowed us to connect faster, and with more clients. However the value of many of those relationships has decreased as emails, blogs, and texts can lack a human touch, making clients feel disconnected.

Companies need to build customer-centric cultures where everyone inside the organisation – no matter where they are or what they do – keeps customer relationships in mind.  Knowing how to  engage with  clients and  make a lasting, positive impression can carry more clout that 500 retweets.
