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


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

Tools to harness these game changing trends and use them to reinvent your strategies
The ability to decode today’s landscape and use it as a way to drive innovation
