Announcing the Open House Panel: How to Build a Customer-Centric Culture

Step Change, Customer Centricity

With only a month to go before the much-awaited Open House event “How to Build a Customer-Centric Culture”, Step Change is thrilled to announce the panel of distinguished leaders across a variety of disciplines who will be joining us.

Insight: Following the Royal Commission Reports for the Aged Care and Financial Services sector, businesses need to have a culture that puts the customer at the heart of the business.

Data: CMO Council reports that “only 14 percent of marketers say that customer centricity is a hallmark of their companies, and only 11 percent believe their customers would agree with that characterization.”

Key Action Point: Register to join the discussion at the Step Change Open House on 5 April. You can RSVP here.

In the wake of the Royal Commission final reports, business leaders are challenged to reshape their organisational culture. That’s why we will be opening our doors to C-Suites and those in charge of leading change in their organisations. We will explore how we can build and sustain a customer-centric culture.
