Great Customer Experience is a Team Sport, presented by TJ Cardenas

  • Learn how to leverage audience analysis combined with proactive communications and relationship-building to drive engaging customer experience.
  • Gain insight into opportunities to connect, learn, and reach across silos to encourage collaboration across functional boundaries.
  • Understand the impact of the role of the communicator in influencing and building partnerships that achieve breakthrough solutions and results.
