    Track: Customer Experience, Optimizing Your Workforce

    Like many modern relationships, the marriage between brand identity and customer support is complicated. It's likely that your company takes great pains with brand consistency, but unfortunately, that same care is rarely put into a brand's customer support voice. A hip non-profit appears rote and cold through email or a startup tech company sounds unnecessarily formal over the phone.

    The relationship between customer support and the brand is a symbiotic one. It builds trust, eases tension, eliminates blame, encourages interaction, and instills loyalty. (It's the marriage we all want!) In this session, we'll look at how and why it's important for agents, advocates, and self-service to consistently represent the brand—to share a brand identity. Through Sarah's experience managing contact centers for 18 years, and her time as an editor and researcher, she'll share candid stories and provide takeaways to strengthen your brand-support relationship.
