Tech Industry Luncheon - March 22
Passionate people all leaning the same direction can achieve big things together
Featuring Calvin Carter, CEO, Bottle Rocket
By now, we all know that the digital revolution is in full swing. New engagement technologies can unlock tremendous value, for your business and for those you serve. But are you ready to be with it? Do you have the mindset to truly transform your processes and experiences? And if not, what is the right mindset? What technologies are a "must have" and what experiences will garner deep loyalty? And how do all of your digital experiences fit together into a cohesive ecosystem that exceed the ever-changing wants and expectations of your customers?
At the intersection of business and the connected user's goals lies opportunity. We call this intersection the Connected Lifestyle and those companies that embrace it will thrive while others will be left behind. The digital experiences that your company creates are already being compared to the likes of Starbucks, Uber, Netflix, and Facebook, among others. These brands are your competition whether you realize it or not. This is the new normal.
For Connected Consumers (or employees) digital experiences are as important if not more so than the product or service your company makes or sells. And they expect these experiences to be seamless across all digital touchpoints from websites, to apps, to voice skills, chat bots, virtual reality, augmented reality, and beyond.
Join Calvin Cater, Founder & CEO of Dallas-based Bottle Rocket, as he highlights his experience building an award-winning experience-based technology company in North Texas. Bottle Rocket is leading many of the world's most distinguished brands head on into The Connected Lifestyle and share how companies can overcome the challenges that they will face as they move toward success in this turbulent, and ever-changing world of technology.
