Learning the customer experience game
Learning about customer experience is becoming a must for business leaders worldwide. It is a valuable part of any successful company and why more people are prioritizing it high on their list of business agendas. How can you run a successful business without looking first to the people who are going to make it profitable? But many still don’t really know what customer experience means, you can find out more right here. For instance, what if you live in a place where customer experience is just taking off? What are your options? It turns out, in some cases, there aren’t many!
So today’s guest, Certified Customer Experience Professional Nienka Bloem, created the Customer Experience Game to help bring this wisdom to continental Europe. In a time when those who wanted to learn about CX had to attend boring conference sessions in hopes of taking away some CX wisdom, Nienka changed the game- both literally and figuratively!
A pioneer in customer-centric practices in Europe, Nienka shares her amazing story of implementing CX strategies to quickly transform an organization with a poor NPS. More importantly, we learn the inspiration behind the Customer Experience Game, how it works, and how it has helped leaders worldwide develop their own CX aptitude.
