Growth in digital innovations has created opportunities for enhanced customer service delivery.

However, government agencies continue to grapple with effectively managing customer service channels while continuing to gather and analyse meaningful customer data.

In addition, as the front facing component of public sectors evolves, it is important to bring internal stakeholders on that journey. How you maintain consistency in customer service as well as keep staff up-skilled and motivated, can greatly affect your customers’ experience and satisfaction.

This conference will provide you with the chance to learn practical strategies of omni-channel management, customer data collection and utilisation, as well as strategies to improve people management practices to deliver on the evolving needs of your internal and external stakeholders.
