Why You Should Attend!



Over the past five years, corporate America has become painfully aware that customers know the difference between a good and a bad user experience – and that these experiences define customer loyalty and ultimately, revenue. To facilitate candid discussions on this reality, Argyle Forum is bringing together leading customer experience executives for our annual CX Forum in Chicago. Throughout a full day of content and networking, we will focus on the most pressing issues that customer experience professionals are facing in 2017, with an agenda geared specifically towards Chief Customer, Customer Experience, and User Experience Officers, as well as VPs and Directors of customer experience, customer care, support and service in a leadership role. Key topics we’ll explore include:

  • Evaluating emerging capabilities to revamp outdated call centers
  • Leveraging self-service to address the needs of the increasingly demanding customer
  • Driving personalized interactions and brand loyalty through mobile and social platforms
  • Exploring how CX executives can effectively guide their organization towards customer-centricity
  • Creating seamless experiences across the entire customer journey, including pre-sales, service and technical support interactions
  • Utilizing automated analytics, cross-channel support, contact rate, and performance support data to better understand the organization


Our keynote presentations, fireside chats, panel sessions, and networking breaks will enable candid discussions with your peers focused on these topics and more. Speakers at last year’s Chicago Forum included Sandra Pineau-Boddison, Senior Vice President Customers, United Airlines; Troy Mills, Divisional Vice President Customer Care Operations, Walgreens; Iram Shah, Senior Vice President, Customer Transformation, Schneider Electric; Brian Doherty, Head of Creative Services and UX, Gogo, Dann Allen, Vice President, Customer Experience Management, Bank of the West, and more.

We look forward to bringing together another fantastic faculty in 2017, and to hosting you alongside our community of Fortune 500 CX leaders hailing from the Midwest and beyond!
