It is no longer enough to offer innovative products and services, as these have become the baseline in a highly competitive and consumer-driven market like ours. Hence, this conference has been carefully put together to provide all participants with the technical know-how to build and maintain trust with customers throughout the service journey whilst also factoring in the dictates of other key stakeholder groups.”
