Rise of the chief customer officer: customer experience in C-suite by Paul Hagen

Paul Hagen will talk about the rise of the chief customer officer: customer experience in the C-suite.

Nearly 7% of the S&P 500 have put an executive into the C-suite who is responsible for customer experience. Paul will talk about the emerging role of the chief customer officer or chief experience officer, who they are, the kinds of companies they're in, and how they get into their positions. I'll give an overview of the key activities that they're doing within their companies and give advice for those who aspire to the role.

    1. Paul sent me his slides (and maybe others who attended). Is there a way to add them to this site? They're in a PDF file.

    2. I typed up notes of the presentation, and Paul said they looked fine. I also added links for people or groups he mentioned during his talk. How can I add my Word document? There appears to be a 1000-word limit for this comment box.

    Excellent presentation. Regarding utilities, they and cities are monopolies and didn't have to give good customer service.
    Now utilities have to deal with solar, etc., and companies are courted by cities to move. They will have to reconsider their poor customer service to keep the customers.

    Excellent speech, Paul! Especially liked the point of consumer surveys for gauging what the view from consumer is. Thank you.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
