This customized presentation will provide:

• Insights into the real customer experience, the touch points that thrill them by speaking to their hearts and not their head

• Understanding of how to develop your digital ‘story’ in a way that actually attracts business

• Recognition of why customer service will never be replaced, but reborn in the Digilogue
