Brian Solis, award-winning author of "The End of Business as Usual," will speak about his most recent book titled "[What's the Future] of Business? Changing the Way Businesses Create Experiences." His latest book explores in a fun, visual, and insightful way how connected consumerism breaks down into Four Moments of Truth - the role of technology in decision-making, how businesses need to create experiences that mean something in each stage, as well as, spark engagement between consumers based on those experiences. WTFB takes readers on an uplifting journey to help them bring about change from the inside out. The end result demonstrates how experience-design amplifies customer relationships, drives word of mouth, and fosters organic advocacy. The point is that experiences can often trump your product or service.
