Navigating the CX Maze: Insights from Ian Robertson on VUX World

2/27/2024
Join us on VUX World for an enlightening episode with Ian Robertson from the Forum, where we delve into the dynamic world of Customer Experience (CX). In this discussion, we'll explore the critical successes and oversights of today's CX leaders, unraveling the common challenges and emerging trends that are shaping the industry. A key focus will be on speech analytics and its interplay with AI - understanding its potential, limitations, and why it hasn't yet become a mainstream tool. We'll discuss the importance of linking what customers say to their actions and outcomes, emphasizing the need to start with identifying the problem rather than jumping to solutions. Ian will shed light on the right questions CX leaders should ask for AI success and why AI solutions often end up isolated. We'll also touch on the significance of silence in speech analytics, the hurdles in acting on data insights, and the balance between striving for perfection and accepting reality. This episode promises to offer a deep dive into the complexities of CX, enhanced by real-world case studies from Capita, The Times, and Anglian Water.Join us as we dive into the details.

Agnoy Agent Roundtable #1

12/20/2023
A few months ago we reached out to conversation designers to ask what challenges they struggle with. The idea had come from a conversation with Ilana Meir at Unparsed, who thought an ‘agony aunt’ for Conversation Designers could be useful and fun, just like Dear Abby helps people with personal problems. Why would we want that? Well, this role isn’t well defined. We have some trailblazers in the industry to inspire us, and we have some great books and courses, but still there’s a lot of questions that a conversation designer might not be able to answer. Someone may be a team of 1 at a large company for example, where they can’t ask a mentor for advice. So, we’ve got two leading lights of the industry to answer crowdsourced questions from the conversation design community! We have Rebecca Evanhoe, who is an experienced conversation designer and co-author of Conversations With Things (which is hands-down one of the best CxD books), and we have Wally Brill, who has been at the coalface of conversation design at companies like Nuance and Google. So, consider this to be the mentoring session you always wanted but could never arrange. When else are you going to get advice from Rebecca Evanhoe and Wally Brill, answering the specific questions that many conversation designers are struggling with, right now?
