Blue Goldfish: Using Technology, Data and Analytics to Drive Differentiation and Customer Advocacy

In our increasingly digital world, customer and client expectations are constantly changing, yet a recent IBM study reveals 76% of customers expect brands to understand their individual needs. Organizations that use data, technology and analytics to focus on their customers will have a strong competitive advantage. Creating change, however, is an uphill battle and not knowing how to start can stop even the best organizations from moving forward.

In his keynote, author Evan Carroll will share how trends including the Internet of things, decreasing attention spans and increasing expectations, like the Amazon Effect, will transform business of the future.

Attendees will leave with:

  • An understanding of the latest trends among today’s audiences
  • Insights into how leading companies combine big data trends and small data insights to engage customers
  • Case studies and inspiration to create real change in their business

And, as a bonus, Evan will add a few extras just for our tourism and hospitality focused businesses. You won’t want to miss it!
