Customer Response Summit is more than a conference – it’s an experience!

Community is at the heart of everything we do and CRS is no different! CRS is an intimate and laser-focused forum, providing outstanding opportunities to engage with some of the brightest minds in customer leadership – “Leaders Learning From Leaders.”

The strength of this forum is due to its innovative design, brilliant discussions, interactive sessions and workshops, brand showcases, exclusive networking opportunities, and engaging activities. If you ask our past attendees, they’ll tell you – CRS is like nothing you’ve experienced before.

Mix all of that with some much-needed after-hours fun and memorable moments you just can’t miss.

Featured Keynote

Passion on Purpose: Why Great Leadership Is Driven by Passion

Great leaders don’t depend on chance; they lead on purpose. Great leaders lead with passion, they do the right things. But what exactly does passion-driven leadership look like? Join Jasmine Green, Vice President Enterprise Customer Solutions and Enablement at Nationwide, as she shares why passion must be interwoven into every aspect of customer experience (CX).  

It should be palpable in the energy leaders have toward their organization, their work, their peers, and their customers. With a desire to serve others and contribute to something bigger than herself, Jasmine is steadfast in capturing, interpreting, and utilizing customer feedback and CX trends to stay ahead of the curve.  

Find out how her unyielding dedication to being a champion for those small and often overlooked moments in the customer journey drives long-term sustainable results and creates loyal customers for life. In this moving talk, Jasmine will share her timeless and powerful principles on why passion and collaboration across the organization act as the fuel behind all great leaders.   

She’ll explain why understanding your business units and their goals are the key to successfully helping them improve and exceed in CX. Additionally, she’ll address why having vision, empathy, and authenticity are more important now than ever before, especially when it comes to making a difference in the lives of Nationwide’s customers. 

Featured Keynote

Title: The Power of Customer Obsession – It’s Beyond Being Customer Centric

Customer obsession means putting the customer front and center of everything you do—your leadership, operations, and strategy. Taken at face value, customer obsession may seem synonymous with customer experience (CX) but think again.

Join Julie Weingardt, Chief Operations Officer at Turo, the world’s largest car sharing marketplace, as she puts customer obsession under the microscope and explains why building a customer-obsessed culture only happens when the customer is a key consideration in every aspect of the business.

Customer obsession is easy to agree with in principle but difficult to put into action. Learn how Turo equips its entire organization with the tools to understand customer intent and channel preference, how a proactive customer-first approach promotes growth, and ways for your brand to move customer obsession from a pipe dream to an operational reality.
