1pm – 4pm |  Building your XM business case

The continued success of your experience programs relies on demonstrating the organisational value created by these investments. But here’s the catch: even if your employees and customers are happier as a result of your work, it can be difficult to effectively quantify or communicate the enormous ROI of experience management.

Now’s the time to change all that. During this highly-interactive masterclass crafted by experts from the Qualtrics XM Institute, you will discover how to construct your business case for experience management.

This practical, in-person masterclass will enable you to:

  • Define and communicate the value of CX and EX programs

  • Develop personalised action plans through guided interactive exercises

  • Build a compelling business case for your XM program

  • Interact with other XM professionals and XM Institute faculty
