Kristen Zavo

Former Director Strategic Projects Eyecare, Luxottica
As computers rapidly approach the capacity of
our human brains and organizations grapple
with where to augment and automate, those
of us who drive customer experience must
embrace the even bigger, more holistic picture,
where heart, soul, and mind drive customer

Getting to market more quickly depends upon
breaking down larger initiatives into smaller
tasks, which is key, yet it can be too easy to lose
sight of a whole that is greater than the sum
of its parts. Let’s help guide CX executives and
other professionals to consider heart, soul, and
mind together, so that we can better build and
retain relationships with customers, provide
experiences to support those relationships, and
provide rich and deep value to our customers.

11:00 AM - 11:20 AM Case Study: From WHAT THE?! To WOW! Creating Amazing Interactions to Drive Transactions

Peter Finter, Senior Vice President, Chief Marketing Officer, Couchbase
In the digital era, people have high expectations for their buying experience and low tolerance for experiences that are anything but spectacular – whether it’s in person, on the web, or on a mobile device. Companies face increasing demands to deliver fast, personalized, and context- and location-aware buying experiences while simultaneously managing growing volumes of users and data. These pressures create a new set of requirements for the foundation on which mission-critical data traverses. By overcoming these challenges, businesses can build engaging, responsive, and scalable web, mobile, and IoT applications.
In this session, attendees will learn how to:
· Deliver engaging customer experiences at every touchpoint
· Speed time to market and competitive innovation
· Easily accommodate surges in demand and volume
· Quickly adjust to product and pricing changes
· Provide personalized recommendations in real time

It’s not always easy for large and established
companies to move quickly, despite the
threats from newer and more agile startup
brands. But, if legacy brands can’t learn
how to keep up with the times, they will be left
• How are companies applying lean start up
best practices to their product ideation?
• Looking at the ways that legacy brands
are by-passing one to two year product
development cycles for shorter prototyping
• How institutions can be using innovation labs
to bring customer insight into these agile
product development cycles
• Potential drawbacks and challenges that
present themselves when larger unwieldy
companies try to operate this way
