Talking Points

Seamless - Weaving Digital & Analogue Worlds

The world is filled with friction. Everywhere we go we experience the frictive effects of badly designed “seams”.

Smart brands understand that the future of customer service, great customer experience and the creation of raving fans, lies in their ability to design seamless transitions between physical and digital channels, and to deliberately and empathetically remove friction from our lives.
In a future of the Internet of Things, Virtual Reality, and Artificial Intelligence, the ability of leaders and brands to go ‘seamless’ will distinguish the winners from the losers.

This bespoke tailored presentation will provide:
• A futurephile’s guide to creating seamlessness for your brand and organization
• Showcase how to think and design to avoid the top frictive mistakes of companies in demise
• How to use seamlessness to create raving brand advocates and customer loyalty

Digilogue - The Convergence of Digital and Analogue

As some organisations careen recklessly into the digital future, others are being left behind. Smart companies are however realising there is an important middle ground - the Digilogue. A place where digital and analogue converge. Where progressive ‘digital’ strategies satisfy a customer's mind while the old fashioned ‘analogue’ practices sooth their hearts. This customised presentation will provide:
• Appreciation of the parts of your business that simply cannot go digital
• Insights into the real customer experience, the touch points that thrill them by speaking to their hearts and not their head
• Understanding of how to develop your digital ‘story’ in a way that actually attracts business
• Recognition of why customer service will never be replaced, but reborn in the Digilogue

I have recently had the pleasure of working with Anders during preparation for a national congress, where Anders was consequently voted 'Best Speaker'. In all my dealings with Anders I found him to be extremely accommodating and helpful. Our timelines were incredibly tight but he was able to work within the parameters with no issue. He is very passionate about Generation Y and motivation in the workplace, whilst also being mindful of factors affecting each and every one of us. This makes his presentations so applicable and relevant to the audience. I have been lucky enough to have attended a couple of Anders' sessions and have come away each time with new strategies to try, which is rare, and I am pleased to say the strategies have been effective! In this era where we are all time poor, any time away from your core business needs to enhance your competencies or develop you or your business. I believe Anders' sessions are value-packed and thought-provoking and have indeed helped me to develop, manage, motivate and retain my staff.
