August Luncheon: How to Score a 2.0 with your Customers!

Join Alisha Starkey and Ted Williams from Cox Virginia as they discuss the “2.0” version of customer satisfaction research that they and many other companies are using to determine not only how satisfied their customers are, but also how engaged their customers are with the brand. How loyal are their customers? Will they come back for future business? Also how much are customers recommending the business to others? 

Learn more about and register for the August Luncheon!
