    Hi Venk what are your thoughts on the school of thought that you should 'Surprise and Delight Your Customers' vs 'Customers want fast and efficient service.'
    Thanks!

    This may be of interest to folks. Salesforce.com is hosting an event tomorrow about providing an effortless customer experience.
    (I meant to mention this at our meet up this evening):

    Info:
    The emergence of the social and mobile connected consumer has forced companies around the world to transform their approach to customer service. Customers expect companies to know them and answer their questions when they want and on whatever channel they want.

    We’re delighted to announce our highly sought after guest speaker: Matt Dixon, Executive Director, Financial Services and Customer Contact Practices at Corporate Executive Board and co-author of "The Effortless Experience". Matt will bring invaluable insights, research data and examples that shatter pre-conceived notions of what customer service organizations should try to solve.

    I'm looking to learn how you balanced building the function while also delivering the client success services at the same time. How did you prioritize things, what were some things you'd do differently if you could... Looking forward to hearing the talk!
