As technology advances, how we live, play and work can transform seemingly overnight. In the world of marketing, technology has allowed us to reach a wider audience using more efficient and cost-effective methods and introduced new software and intelligence into our daily lives. Despite the many promises of technology, marketers ask the question if these new advances will cause us to sacrifice human connection and hinder client relationships. However, what if there was a way to reap the benefits of technology and simultaneously enhance the client experience?

Author, speaker and experience architect Evan Carroll believes that companies can leverage technology, data, and analytics to drive customer loyalty and advocacy.

Join SMPS Michigan Wednesday, November 7 as Carroll discusses how companies can see more significant results from their marketing and sales teams by focusing not just on technology, but on their customers. Carroll will provide compelling examples of companies who have been successful using this approach and teach you how to apply these methods to your marketing strategy.

You will leave this event with the tools to transform your company into a client-focused operation that utilizes technology to create a better experience for your team and your costumers.
