Chris Ezekiel, Founder & CEO, Creative Virtual

Every organisation is going through a digital transformation, particularly in regard to their customer and employee experiences. Smartphones, social media and a variety of other technological advancements are changing how we communicate with each other, how we connect with brands and how we engage in the workplace. Chris outlines the essential components for using conversational AI to enhance both the customer and employee experience, from best practices for implementing chatbots, virtual agents and live chat to using an orchestration platform for centralised, consistent information delivery. Drawing on experience and calling up live demos, Chris will explore how combining AI with human input and feedback loops can drive better customer and employee engagement.
