Smarter Service Symposium, Chicago, USA

September 2019

Smarter Service Symposium, Chicago, USA When: 16th to 18th September 2019
Venue: Westin, Chicago River, Chicago
Producer: The Service Council.

As automation and intelligence invades every part of the service delivery process and encroaches on the experience delivered to customers, differentiation in service is delivered by personal connections.

These connections stem between service leaders and employees, service businesses and their partners, between service employees, and most importantly between service personnel and their customers. Ease and Effort will be expected in service delivery. Empathy and Experience will elevate the dialogue. Those attending the Symposium will engage in keynote level discussions centred around our event theme and then be able to participate in discussions and workshops

Venue:  Hotel Birger Jarl, Sweden
Producer: Copperberg

It is evident that traditional industrial companies are about to change greatly very soon. The reality of the internet of things is here already. Digitalization, automation, robotization and servitization are all key to what actually gives a competitive edge to the traditional manufacturer but what is it exactly that needs to happen going forward?

The more refined the production process gets, the greater the need for specific skill-sets and competencies. The key differentiator will be human capital. This is the time when the key changes that the industry is going through will define our future.
