Rick Parrish, Senior Analyst at Forrester, to Present Technology Keynote at Xploration® 16

Lutz, FL — February 8, 2016—Xplor International, the worldwide electronic document systems association, today announced their technology keynote presentation will be delivered by Rick Parrish at Xploration® 16 being held April 5-7  at the Caribe Royale Orlando in Orlando, Florida. The presentation titled The Rise of the Customer Experience Ecosystem will be on Thursday, April 7, 2016 from 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM.  Attendees can register at www.cvent.com/d/drqy2z.

Tweet this: @RickParrishGCX, Senior #CX Analyst @forrester, presents The Rise of the Customer Experience Ecosystem at #Xplor16  http://ow.ly/XRk3F

“Rick is an incredible analyst with both a unique background and perspective in the area of the Customer Experience” comments Skip Henk, EDP, President/CEO of Xplor International. “His presentation on the The Rise of the Customer Experience Ecosystem is not only relevant, but timely.”

Rick Parrish is a Senior Customer Experience Analyst at Forrester Research. With over 14 years of experience, Rick helps clients in all industries overcome the unique challenges they face in developing successful and innovative customer experiences. Rick is Forrester’s leading expert on the CX ecosystem, the complex web of behind-the-scenes interactions that influence the quality of the customer experience.

Previous Work Experience
Rick was previously an analyst at the Central Intelligence Agency, where he helped pioneer high-profile improvements in the CIA’s customer focus and gained an appreciation for the unique hurdles governments face in such efforts. He also earned awards for his rigorous, influential analysis and engagement with a range of senior officials. Prior to his government service, Rick was a professor of political science at Loyola University New Orleans and West Texas A&M University (WTAMU) and director of the political science graduate program at WTAMU.

Rick holds a Ph.D. in political science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he focused on international relations and political theory.

An overview of Rick’s presentation:
In 2016, 83% of executives are focused on making their company a leader in customer experience. Why? Because CX – how customers perceive their interactions with a company – is one of the few sustainable sources of competitive advantage left. But it’s extremely hard to get CX right all of the time because the business environment has gotten so complex. Thousands of employees have to coordinate across dozens of touch points to meet the needs of millions of customers, all of whom have slightly different expectations. Forrester has a name for all of that complexity – the customer experience ecosystem. We’ve been studying what a healthy CX ecosystem looks like and how leading firms like Delta Airlines have re-engineered their CX ecosystem to leapfrog their competition.

In this session you’ll hear Rick answer questions from their research like:

  • What is a “CX ecosystem”? Why does it matter?
  • What does it mean for you, as an individual, to be part of your company’s CX ecosystem?
  • How do you know what your current CX ecosystem looks like and where you fit in?
  • How have leading firms transformed their CX ecosystem to improve business results?
  • How can you help your company strengthen its CX ecosystem to achieve similar results?

“What happens if we don’t and they stay?”

By Skip Henk, EDP, President/CEO of Xplor International

Every year around this time I have the opportunity to speak with people about attending our annual conference. Generally questions include fees, the hotel, content, schedule, networking opportunities, and so on.

I also have conversations with people who tell me that they are unable to attend because it is not in the budget. My personal favorite is “my company does not believe in conferences.” The same has held true when I talk about industry certification. “We have no budget, or our company does not see the value.”

One has to ask, why do companies not want to develop their people? I received something from a friend of mine at Print Media Center the other day that makes a great deal of sense…

CFO asks CEO: “What happens if we invest in developing our people and they leave?”
CEO to CFO: “What happens if we don’t and they stay?”

It is costly if you don’t!

Investing in employees is a good investment. It makes employees more productive, speeds up their growth, increases employee satisfaction and retention and is good for your customers.

One year we had an attendee say that he returned with several new ideas for his company that resulted in several millions of dollars in savings. His company invested less than $1500 for him to attend a conference. He also received a cash bonus. The company benefited, he benefited, and his customers benefited.

Investments go beyond attending conferences. One of our members and sponsors put out a challenge to their employees to get an industry certification or designation. The company, GMC Software, made the investment in time and covered all certification fees. As a result, 124 of GMC’s employees obtained either an EDA designation or EDP certification. That is 20% of their employees in one year!

Why did GMC do it? Because they want to developed their people and make them more valuable to the company and subsequently, their customers.

We want to invest in you!

I have attended dozens of conferences over the years and when I do, I have only one objective: leave with one idea or contact that not only paid for the conference, but made me money. Over the years, I have made a lot of money for the companies I have worked for.

Xplor conferences are filled with a wealth of knowledge, great ideas, and great contacts. As such, I would like you to attend the conference free as my guest. (Sorry but you will have to cover travel and hotel)

Xploration® 16 will take place April 5-7, 2016 at the Caribe Royale Orlando in Florida. – featuring 55+ educational sessions, 3 keynote speakers, 2 networking lunches, 2 evening networking events and 35 exhibitors.

For more information, click here.

To receive a complimentary conference pass (Value $1199) simply meet these three simple criteria:

1. An end user* (no vendors please)
2. Have not attended an Xplor annual conference for the last eight years
3. Stay at our host hotel, the Caribe Royale Orlando, a beautiful resort property for $159/night.

Xplor has opened up the call for presentations with the ability to submit for one of three positions: Session Presenter, Panel Moderator, or Panelist.

“We are looking for great content, made up of real world experiences, delivered by people who have lived it.”, says Roger Chamberlain, 2016 Conference Chair, “I highly encourage people to submit quickly if they are interested in participating as over the last three years we have had many more submissions than speaking opportunities.”

To view a full list of conference topics or to submit, please visit www.cvent.com/d/nrqgp0. Please feel free to sign up as both a panelist and a session presenter. Due to past demand, we can only accept one entry per person for session presenters, so choose your best one! Those selected will be notified of the status of their submission in November.

Panel moderators and session presenters will receive a complimentary full-conference pass for sharing their time and talent. Panelists receive a discount on published pricing and can attend the event for $499 USD.
