At Interactions we're always proud to present dynamic and intriguing speakers...

Each customer touch point receives a great deal of attention and care; yet as we transition from in-person, to phone, to social, to mobile and online, each individual touch point just represents an independent snapshot of the overall customer journey. To create the perfect experience, now, more than ever, is the time to evaluate the entire experience – from channel to channel, moment to moment. CEO, Barak Eilam, will share how journeys are transforming our industry and the challenge is shifting to understanding the “why” of customer frustration and the “how” of analyzing experiences in real-time. It’s time to create perfect experiences.

Customer engagement is key to providing the perfect experience.
