How Micromoments Make A Big Impact In CX

Leaders are often taught to think about the big picture, but there’s plenty of magic in the details — especially when it comes to the thousands of ways customers can interact with your brand every day. What happens when these customer experience “micromoments” go ignored?


In this session, Jeannie Walters, CCXP challenges us to think about each interaction customers have with our brands and how easily the impact of those moments is overlooked.

Getting Digital CX Right: How Knowing Your Customer Helps Make Your CX Memorable

Let’s talk about ways to deliver for your customers throughout their journey.


The digital customer journey has changed -- and continues to. 


We can no longer think of the digital customer journey as separate from the larger customer journey as a whole.


Superior customer experience is the main competitive differentiator today. Because consumers have more voice, more choice and more than 50% show little or no hesitation in ending relationships with companies if CX falls short.


Meanwhile, managing all the digital channels that play a role in CX doesn’t make it any easier to provide great service. So, what are the customer expectations you need to fulfill and what are the best ways to do it?


In this session, you'll learn how to…

  • Expand the customer journey to include activities that occur before a consumer’s first interaction with your contact center

  • Provide a seamless experience across channels: self-service and agent-assisted; inbound and outbound; digital and voice

  • Personalize every touchpoint through the use of customer data and interaction history

  • Track the customer journey to gain valuable insights that help you get digital CX right

  • Proactively guide a customer before they need to search for information and support

  • Tie the digital experience to your customers' real-life needs, not just products


Building Customer Experience Strategy Foundations

How Do Great Brands Deliver a Consistent Customer Experience? 


How can some brands get it so right, so consistently, while others are so consistently...  inconsistent? 


The answer is a Customer Experience Mission and a Customer Experience Success Statement. 


What is a CX Mission Statement? It's your customer experience "north star" that helps guide every part of your initiatives, products, and services to serve your customers. What about success? First, you need to define it for your organization with a CX Success Statement. Customer experience success is not a one-size-fits-all outcome, but rather a customized understanding of what success means for the organization, your leaders, and your industry. 


Your CX strategy is then based on your CX Mission Statement and your CX Success Statement. They are the foundation to help you define and communicate customer experience across your organization and align customer experience goals with larger organizational goals. 


In this session, Jeannie Walters, CCXP will be sharing ways your organization can develop those statements and begin delivering a more consistently delightful experience to your customers. She’ll also introduce the CX Success Formula that can help the rest of your organization understand what “doing customer experience” really is!



  • Learn how to start building a customer experience strategy

  • Learn how to define and communicate customer experience across your organization

  • Learn how to align customer experience goals with larger organizational goals

  • Learn how to deliver a more consistently delightful experience to your customers


Let's Talk About Journey Mapping (Why Customer Journey Mapping Is a Verb, Not a Noun)

The need to understand customer behaviors may never be as great as today. Customers are proliferating digital channels thanks to the digital acceleration that began in 2020 and extends today.


And companies need help. Only 11% of organizations say they currently understand customer behavior well, according to the CMSWire State of Digital Customer Experience. About 56% say they moderately understand customer behavior, and 33% say they either understand customer behavior poorly or that they haven’t started to understand customer behavior yet.


Customer journey mapping is one tool to help understand customers better. But it's more than creating a map. It's truly defining those customer moments that matter.


Jeannie Walters, chief customer experience investigator and founder at Experience Investigators, invests in making customer journey mapping work. It's a verb, and not a noun, she says. Walters shared these and other tips and strategies around customer journey mapping and CX best practices.


In this session, you’ll learn…

  • Why understanding customers is harder than we think, and what to do about it

  • When to go big and when to stay focused

  • How mapping can improve empathy, compassion and understanding throughout the organization

“The takeaways were great. Jeannie is a dynamic speaker to begin with. Process and people going together, I think, really address what we need to concentrate on in our own industry, real estate. With always keeping that at the forefront of driving home the experience for that customer and doing the little things and not overlooking the small things that really make a difference in that experience they go through. We do it every day, and they do it once or twice, maybe three times in a lifetime. So it's super important to make it a fundamental experience they will repeat and recommend.”


“We hired Jeannie to present to the top real estate agents and she was phenomenal. Outside of how great she was speaking, she was super easy to work with. She's very kind, which I value greatly, and the openness with which she talked about what she was going to do and took direction was absolutely perfect. I couldn't be happier with the results.”


“Our members asked for a speaker who could talk about improving their customers’ experiences with State Treasury offices. As luck would have it, we heard Jeannie on NPR and knew she was the one we needed for our conference. Not only was her message tailored to our public sector audience, but she brought personal experience, humor and an on-target message as our luncheon keynote. Working with her team was a joy throughout the process!”
