10:20 TABLE DISCUSSION: WHERE DO YOU STAND?

In your roundtable groups, you will be given 30 minutes to discuss the following scenario: “Your CEO has become aware that AI is playing a pivotal role in the future of customer experience and success of your business. You have been invited to the board meeting to make a case of three areas to invest in to ensure a successful AI-driven customer experience future of your company.” You will take time sharing ideas with your group members and compile three components, which you should be ready to explain. You will then take 10 - 12 minutes to share the outcomes with each group in the room.

15:00 TABLE DISCUSSION: IS OMNICHANNEL WORTH IT?

Is omnichannel simply a cost of doing business nowadays, or could we be spending money elsewhere and achieve similar results? How do you bring the benefits of speed, flexibility, reliability and transparency for your customers without having the right foundations in place?
 
In your roundtable groups, you will discuss what the deal-breakers and moments of truth are for your customers, and how to make their experience more seamless with or without AI. You will also take the opportunity to assess how what you are doing fits with the omnichannel future.
