Accelerate your CX innovation strategy at this exclusive executive peer summit

Today’s customer experience business leaders face endless challenges. Customers expect constant convenience, rapid resolutions and increasingly personalized end-to-end journeys. And technology is evolving to keep pace with their rising demands. The result is a constantly shifting landscape.

The Genesys Leadership Summit is designed to advance your knowledge of the industry trends and innovations that are redefining the experience economy – and prepare you to thrive no matter what tomorrow brings. Join your executive peer community at this gathering of global leaders September 26-30 to accelerate your CX digital transformation journey.

Reimagine your CX strategy

CX strategy is no longer just about fielding inquiries and resolving customers’ issues. Today, it extends to the entire customer journey and imagining the customer experience as a competitive advantage. And customers have growing expectations for orchestrated experiences that feel personalized. Centering customers and the employees who serve them in your strategy is now a critical component for CX success. At this exclusive executive event, you’ll learn how to fast-track your digital transformation, orchestrate better customer experiences, including how generative AI can play a role, and set your brand apart.

This summit provides a rare opportunity to engage with other leaders in the customer experience space who are looking to evolve their CX strategy to shift from a reactive posture to proactive orchestration of customer experiences. You’ll have the chance to ask questions, have frank conversations about lessons learned and get personal insights on what they would do differently to improve outcomes. You’ll also participate in peer-to-peer think-tank sessions on topics important to you and your business as you plan your own CX evolution.

Stay for the Ryder Cup

Your participation in the CX Leadership Summit includes an optional two days spent at the world famous 2023 Ryder Cup golf tournament where you will have the opportunity to take in all the excitement from The Founders Lounge, overlooking the thrilling 16th and 17th holes. Watch current and future legends of the game go head to head and check one of your bucket list items off of your list.
