Contact Centre Week 2018 Post Show Report

Contact Centre Week 2018 Post Show Report

The 2018 Contact Centre Summit saw an impressive increase in the diversity and seniority of its audience from 2017. Of more than 250 attendees, 44% were at Director Level or above, and the average budget was almost $9 million. With a greater number of attendees from the Financial Services, Utilities and Healthcare sectors, CCW2018 also cemented itself as a broad cross-industry summit capable of delivering an audience as senior and experienced as the speaker lineup.

As the summit evolves to meet these new audience demographics so too will the event’s partners. Now more than ever, partnering with CCW will put you in front of the key decision makers responsible for shaping their organisation’s customer contact. Unlike other contact centre events, developing a strategic partnership for CCW2019 will put your organisation ahead of your competitors by ensuring you only meet with the people that matter.

Special Report: Contact Centre Learning and Development

Contact center “training” is important, but it is not enough. It does not prepare agents to build meaningful connections with customers, and it does not ensure they get better over time.

To truly engage and empower your contact center agents, you must adopt a continuous – and passionate – commitment to agent learning and development. Do not settle for a four-week crash course on product knowledge; develop an ongoing, personalized “journey” that consistently makes your agents more efficient, more customer-centric and more committed to the business’ objectives.

This special report details how to create a learning program that will yield happy agents, happy customers, and ever-improving business results.

  • Customer demands you must consider when coaching agents
  • The impact of chatbots on agent development
