Customer Experience Roundtable

1st July

Etc Venues, Tenter House, London

Another Econsultancy event for subscribers only: Customer Experience roundtable. If your conversion rates are high enough for now, you might decide that honing your customer experience is the next mountain to climb.

If you’re keen to attend, you can expect a healthy talk on the challenges faced when delivering on customer experience, and how to measure the effectiveness of your attempts at customer satisfaction.

Mobile App Strategy Roundtable

1st July

Here we have another Econsultancy event and on the same day at that. With Mobilegeddon recently being introduced after Google’s update, focussing on your mobile app strategy might be a pretty smart idea if you know what’s good for your company.

Again, this event is only available to Econsultancy Enterprise subscribers but the value offers seems likely to provide a return on investment.
