The format may be different, but this year’s EmpowerCX promises to have the same impact on your business and its ability to deliver customer experience (CX). 

It is still packed with keynotes and breakout sessions and is still dedicated to helping business leaders understand and overcome the challenges organizations face in striving for CX excellence: empowered, effective employee training and development; leveraging technologies – from speech analytics to intelligent automation; the creation and deployment of chatbots; and unlocking the benefits of moving towards a digital business transformation. 

CX Delivery in a Post-COVID-19 World

At 11 a.m. ET on October 14, Sitel Group®’s leaders will officially open the eventwith an expert analysis of the past 12 months, the lessons learned and the trends going forward as brands attempt to align their CX with customer expectations in a post-COVID-19 world.

Sitel Group President, CEO and co-founder, Laurent Uberti will focus his keynote presentation on how 2020 has forever changed end-to-end CX delivery and the steps Sitel Group has taken since coronavirus was officially declared a pandemic, in March, to assist brands across all industry sectors in adapting to and evolving their strategies to meet the unique challenges of this year.

The Employee Experience is the Customer Experience

Uberti will be followed by Global COO and co-founder, Olivier Camino, who will speak about how a commitment to people and culture, driven by the Sitel MAX program, has enabled Sitel Group to innovate and rapidly respond to the changing needs of the CX industry and the new world of work created by the COVID-19 crisis.

Sharing details on the MAX difference and how it is putting innovation directly in the hands of our global community, with tangible results from some of the many projects delivered over the last 12 months.
Camino will also speak about a recent innovation born from Sitel MAX, responding to the catalyst of COVID-19,  accelerating our industry into the future; reimagining the contact center of the future via our MAXhubs creating a new home for CX built upon the power of employee engagement.

Introducing EXP+™ your Platform for CX Success

Americas CEO Mike Small will also share his insights and take time to examine the increasingly virtual world in which CX now exists and the digital challenges businesses now face, looking beyond COVID-19 to the future and how brands can drive better results by reimagining the way in which CX partnerships work. Speaking about a new, more outcome-based approach to CX BPO partnerships, Small will discuss the new  Enterprise Experience Platform from Sitel Group, EXP+, and how the flexibility of our solutions can simplify the delivery of end-to-end CX services, while boosting efficiency, effectiveness and customer satisfaction.

Understanding Innovation with Everest Group

Innovation is key to business growth. However, because digital technology is now the ultimate driver of innovation, the pace at which change is occurring is making it harder and harder for businesses to keep up and understand the benefits the latest breakthrough could deliver. To bring clarity to the topic, Samuel Bendor-Samuel, founder and CEO of Everest Group, will examine the past, present and future of innovation, its historical and contemporary impact, how and when to invest in innovation and what organizations can hope to expect from their service providers as they move through the stages of digital transformation.
