Despite what they may say, most companies have one favorite topic: Themselves. Yet, mounting research (and some of our personal experiences) show us that talking about ourselves isn’t the way to attract customers. During this morning workshop, participants will:
- Learn why leveraging external stakeholders as messengers is a powerful strategy every business should be using
- Discover how to overcome “corporate narcissism” that gets in the way of developing messages that resonate with your customers
- Explore ways to find customers to serve as brand messengers
- View real-life examples of how organizations are leveraging the voice of the customer
