"Presentations this year will cover the most critical challenges facing customer programs," says Lee, "with a focus on providing participants face time with keynoters and presenters as well as peer interaction."
Summit highlights will include:
Get Up Close and Personal With Don Peppers
"We're going to get up close and personal with the legendary Don Peppers," says Lee. "Don is the most respected thought leader in the world on all things customer."
With Lee, Peppers will lead the Pre-Summit workshop for advanced practitioners and engage the general session in a fireside chat, "which will be very interactive,"
Hear From Silicon Valley's Most Visionary Chief Customer Officer
Bob Olson, Chief Customer Officer of LendingHome, former CCO of GoDaddy, and former Customer Strategist with Intuit will keynote. "The founder of the Chief Customer Officer Council told me that Bob is 'the most visionary and articulate CCO in Silicon Valley,'" says Lee. "After getting to know Bob, I fully agree. I'm sure Summit attendees will as well!"
Learn a Game-Changing Breakthrough on Metrics
Everyone knows that customer content and other forms of peer advocacy are critical for marketing and sales—but no one can persuasively measure how critical with real specificity. Jenn Steele, vice president of product marketing at Bizible—who launched and ran an advocacy program at a previous firm—will present an exciting breakthrough software tool to facilitate marketing attribution for tracking customer advocacy. It allows markets to use data to gauge the degree to which specific marketing or sales assets move buyers through each stage of the journey to the ultimate sale. This is going to revolutionize firms' ability to measure the impact of customer advocacy on revenue.

The Summit will have two hours of Birds of a Feather roundtable discussions, in which any attendee can specify the topic they want to address with their peers. "As soon as you register, you can let us know what topic you want to discuss, and we'll set up a BOF discussion for you," says Lee.
