This week Sam and Jenny speak with Jason Bradshaw, VW Australia's Chief Customer Officer (LinkedIn Bio). Jason is on to talk customer and employee experience, specifically topics and anecdotes from his recently published book, "It's All About C-E-X." He shares his CX origin story, starting a business differentiated on the basis of its service when he was only 14 years old, and the importance for any business of having clarity around its experience principles. We also discuss the connections between great employee and customer experience, how caring authentically for the needs of both sets of people is fundamental to firms being able to realize business returns from CX improvements.

Memories are fickle. And that has implications in how customers' emotions drive their perceptions of brands. In this episode, we answer the question: How do customers' memories of their emotions toward a brand impact their loyalty to that brand?"

We highly recommend that you listen to episode 129 before listening to this episode.

Emotions drive customers' perceptions — and human interactions are more emotionally resonant than digital interactions. That's why CX pros must help their colleagues deliver experiences that create more positive customer emotions. They can do this by sharing information about what matters to customers and training and coaching employees about what they should do to evoke positive customer emotions. To get more value out of good employee experience delivery, firms must also help customers better remember positive emotions associated with past interactions.

00:30 Why does emotion matter to CX?
03:39 What role do employees play in evoking the right emotions?

Customers expect their experiences to keep getting better. Trouble is, they haven't — or at least not enough to keep up with those rising expectations. This has been going on for the last three years and will begin to boil over in 2019, leading to a series of systemic shocks for CX transformation efforts and turmoil for CX professionals. What happens next? A group of Forrester's top experts on customer experience came together to answer that question. In this episode, we discuss a couple of our favorite of those 5 predictions.
