Clinton was an engaging and interactive speaker that brought new insights to the CXO crowd. The way we communicate with each other has changed; we are much more likely to use technologies like SMS, WhatsApp, Twitter or Facebook as opposed to picking up the phone or writing an email. As a result WhatsApp sees over 30 billion messages sent every single day and Facebook now has 1.44 billion active users. This trend towards message-based communication is now extending to the way that consumers are interacting with their brands. However, there is a still significant gap between how businesses allow their customers to contact them and what consumers want. This session explored how major brands are innovating to keep pace with changing consumer behaviour by embracing new technology and best practices, and how this is also having a positive impact on their bottom line.
