ICON VIC: How to use client experience and empathy mapping to boost client insights

Icon Logo.jpg

The voice of the client is usually sought by businesses at two main listening posts: at the end of a transaction and as part of an ongoing relationship management plan. While many businesses devote a lot of effort to their client feedback programs, they can be hard to sustain, expensive to conduct, elaborate in their execution and slow to yield results. In this session, you’ll discover alternative ways to gather meaningful insights from clients without busting your budget. In addition, you’ll find out how to use client experience mapping and empathy mapping to guide your approach.

Topics include:

  • A practical five-stage client experience framework that will re-frame marketing, sales and client loyalty actions

  • How to install at least six more ”listening posts” throughout a client journey

  • How to move feedback to the front line of client engagement

  • How to use empathy mapping to inform the questions you ask

  • You’ll learn how to apply process improvement to produce efficiency, excellent quality and service, a high probability of successful outcomes, predictability, and achieve greater satisfaction.

  • You’ll learn how project management ensures you select, apply, and manage best processes to deliver what is most critical for success, on time and on budget.

  • We’ll show you both tools and processes; explain how they are used, and provide the opportunity for you to apply it to your specific legal or business challenge.

  • You'll take part in experiential learning, table work and discussions.

ALM Media Presents: The Voice of the Client

  • ALM Media new Headquarters at the Wells Fargo Building, 2nd Floor (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The voice of the client is usually sought by firms at two main listening posts: at the end of a transaction and as part of an ongoing relationship management plan.

While many firms devote a lot of effort to their client feedback programs, they can be hard to sustain, expensive to conduct, elaborate in their execution and slow to yield results. 

In this session, you’ll discover alternative ways to gather meaningful insights from clients without busting your budget. In addition, you’ll find out how to use client experience mapping and empathy mapping to guide your approach in client interactions and relationship management.

Topics include:

  • A practical five-stage client experience framework that will re-frame marketing, sales and client loyalty actions
  • How to install at least six more ”listening posts” throughout a client journey
  • How to move feedback to the front line of client engagement
  • How to use empathy mapping to inform the questions you ask

Event details:

  • Date: Monday 10 September 2018
  • Time: 12:00pm-1:30pm EDT
  • Location: ALM Media, 2nd Floor, 150 E 42nd St, New York, NY 10017
