A Mindful Experience: Using Brain-Based Science to Improve Your Customer Experience

We all know that to be successful in business today, we need to create frictionless, useful, remarkable, impactful customer experiences. This means creating an experience that is more than just pretty design. There is a lot to consider - from ease of use to accessibility of information, speed, aesthetic appeal, you name it. While these are all important considerations, they tend to overshadow the most important factor in that experience - the human behind it.

Cognitive psychology and neuroscience play a critical role in CX. To truly understand the customer for which you’re designing the experience, you must know and understand the positive and negative triggers that contribute to a good or bad experience, and then you must integrate these learnings into your CX strategy.

To help companies better understand brain-based science and how to utilize it to improve CX, Lori Kirkland, Universal Mind’s Vice President of Experience Transformation, is presenting ‘A Mindful Experience: Using Brain-Based Science to Improve Your Customer Experience’ at a CXPA (Customer Experience Professionals Association) event in Columbus on Wednesday, November 2, 2016, 5:30-7:00pm at the Columbus Metropolitan Library.
