Recap of Customer Advisory Board Conference 2019

Over 50 people attended our annual conference for Customer Advisory Board program managers in Boston on December 5th. We had some great presentations followed roundtable discussions on top of mind topics regarding managing advisor councils identified by the attendees. The key presentations were:

“Becoming Customer Obsessed by using Customer Advisory Board Insights to Drive Change” – Stephanie G. Wicky, Group Director, Marketing, Supply Chain Solutions & Dedicated Transportation, Ryder System, Inc.

“Aiming High to Recruit & Engage CAB Members” – Ben Tao, Vice President – Corporate Marketing, Forcepoint

“Driving Tangible Business Value through Customer Advisory Boards: Our CAB Experience” – Angela Nichols, Senior Manager, Global Advisory Boards, Clinical Effectiveness, UpToDate

“The Secret Sauce of Session Design” – Eyal Danon, Founder, Ignite Advisory Group   

Following these sessions we worked in smaller groups in breakouts to tackle these questions and share best practices: What are the Top 3 Challenges you face managing Customer Advisory Board Programs? What are the Top 3 Solutions to these?
