In this highly competitive environment, forward-thinking firms are realizing that creating an unrivaled client experience (CX) is truly the key to creating genuine differentiation and sustained competitive advantage. A client’s experience is the cumulative impact of every single touch point and interaction they have with a firm. While CX is every employee’s job, creating and implementing an effective CX program doesn’t happen in a vacuum—someone must own the program. And marketing departments are in the best position to “quarterback” the end-to-end customer experience in their firms.

Relationship building, intuition, domain knowledge, and reasonable approximations can mean the difference between a successful campaign and a catastrophic failure. We’ll dive into best practices extracted from solving real marketing/BD problems like: turning strategic plans into actions, recalculating mid-trip, expanding social networks organically, turning problems into solutions, working backwards, and testing SEO advertising while contributing to society.
