7 Customer Experience Sessions You Must Attend At CCW Nashville 2019 #CCWwinter

Contact Center Week Nashville (CCW Nashville 2019) presents a wonderful opportunity to meet with customer service and customer experience experts and learn from the best.

Of course, you can make a lot of customer experience updates and changes on the job and learn a great deal through online resources. However, attending an event like CCW Nashville can give you that extra push you need to go above and beyond the day-to-day and really immerse yourself in learning new ideas and techniques that will give your business – and your customers – an extra boost.

The great and daunting thing about CCW Nashville is that there are so many sessions available. Which experts you choose to listen to will depend on the needs of your company. At the same time, there are a few sessions which really stand out as providing information everyone could use.

That’s why we’ve selected our top seven must-see sessions at CCW Nashville 2019.

I’d choose the second option. Wouldn’t you?

Bonus Activity

All right, this isn’t a session. But we’d love to see you at the GlowTouch booth, number 318.  Stop by and say hi, and we’ll show you how you can transform customer care with the right insourcing-outsourcing balance, people, channels, locations, processes, and technologies.

What’s more, we will be bringing the Wheel of Giving. Wondering what that’s about? Well, we invest approximately 3% of our revenue to feed 55,000 children daily, support STEM education initiatives, and provide healthcare services to communities in need. The Wheel of Giving is just one aspect of that “giving back” process.

We’d love to see you at the GlowTouch booth, number 318.

Spin the wheel to help us decide where we should be focusing some of our charitable giving. The three charities who are in the running are:

  • BLOOM Charity – BLOOM’s intervention programs target the early childhood development, education, and mental health needs of institutionalized orphans in Morocco, with a mission to improve outcomes. Simultaneously, BLOOM builds a community of support for Moroccan adoptees living in the USA, to foster a sense of community and connection to their birth country.

  • Kentucky Science and Engineering Fair – KY-SEF’s mission is to expand educational opportunities for all middle and high school students, and to enhance the visibility and importance of science and engineering in Kentucky by providing annual statewide competitions that support, encourage, and recognize student excellence in science and engineering research.

Together, we are building a new Mega Kitchen facility in Mangalore, India. Each day, the kitchen will serve 50,000 children attending government-aided schools in and around the Dakshina Kannada and Udupi regions.


Each time you spin the wheel, you will give one of these wonderful charities a vote. And each vote gets them closer to a bigger donation. Come by and do something good for your business, your customers, and the world.
