Champagne experience, lemonade budget!

Join our expert panel in our Leeds offices on the evening of the 8th June to learn how organisations from across sectors are tackling one of the biggest challenges they face today: Customer experience. 

How you can create tailored and personalised experiences, deliver them at speed, utilise your data, measure ROI, and create lifetime customer value without breaking the bank? 

Our panel will discuss, then we’ll open the floor for questions, have an informal Spanish dinner and drinks together, catered for by Leeds restaurant Bomba. Then there will be an opportunity to network with other guests. This is an invite only event and places are limited so RSVP today to get your seat.



Chris Pope 

VP OF Digital Experience 

Chris works for NTT Data a (Japanese HQ) multinational information technology service and consulting company. The best thing about my job is that every day I'm meeting, talking and 'cogitating' with CxOs, heads of IT and business transformation leaders about their experiences and ambitions. It's about understanding their vision, then enabling them to think differently and challenge the status quo to create the opportunities that will transform their business approach.
I've been there myself, having managed large-scale, technology-led projects in global enterprises. Through senior roles at some of the world's leading financial institutions, including UBS, NYSE Euronext and Lehman Brothers, I've led enterprise service management strategies and I'm now working closely with our customers on initiatives to transform experience.

Out of work, you'll find me on the golf course or touching down on a runway to feed my passion for travel. My family and friends will also vouch for my strong belief and passion for equal rights and the importance of being genuine and respectful to everyone.
