If you haven’t but would like to attend, register here for 20% off the regular ticket price.

CCW’s site includes free downloads for customer-oriented resources, including a list of strategies for providing a great customer experience:

Deep down, you know the customer experience is about the long game. You know that the most productive, customer-centric operations require a thorough vision, methodical planning and carefully calibrated execution. Customer centricity, to put it simply, does not happen overnight. However, customers are not going to spend years enduring bad experiences hoping that you will one day deliver a great experience; they want to be satisfied right now!

Check out their Customer Contact To-Do List page to download the list, and I hope to see some of you in Nashville next week!
