Strategy, Innovation and Product Development in the Age of the Customer

The premiere event for Customer Experience Executives

Park Hyatt Melbourne , 4-5 April 2017

The Chief Customer Officer (CCO) is rapidly becoming fundamental in every organisation. Over the next 5-10 years, it is expected that every organisation will have the equivalent of a CCO.  As organisations take on the age of the customer, the CCO role will be one of immense strategic importance in how organisations align innovation, product development and customer experience initiatives.

As part of Corinium's Global "Chief Customer Officer" Series, the Melbourne conference will provide a highly interactive platform for senior customer experience executives to assess the most critical challenges and opportunities in a business world where the customer is King.

To learn more about our global CCO Series here is a brief snapshot of what customer experience leaders were talking about at Chief Customer Officer Sydney.
