  • CX of the future

    Reimagined, retooled and redesigned

    In this series of informative podcasts, Steve Nuttall of Fifth Quadrant and Mathew Wells from Verizon discuss the CX of The Future with business leaders. Over five episodes, they explore how to maintain an agile response through the current pandemic and beyond. The series will cover customer experience, culture, employee experience, technology, and what this means for the future of CX.

  • Episode 1:
    Rapid response

    In early 2020, companies faced huge challenges as a result of Covid-19. Pivoting to home working, dealing with increased call volumes and more complex queries meant implementing massive changes in technology within weeks. Gordon Littley, Verizon US Domains and CX Practice Lead and Chris Luxford of Aspire Group discuss who managed well, who didn't, and the role played by the vendor and partner ecosystem.



  • Episode 2:
    Culture and Employee Experience

    Cary Cusumano from Verizon US, and Gary McCourt of BGIS explore the importance of employee experience and how companies who were leaders in this area managed the crisis better than most. They discuss what changed for employees and how they coped with the new reality, what employee experience might look like in the future, and the post-Covid prospects for offshoring.



  • Episode 3:
    Customer Experience

    Amelia Diggle of Verizon Connect, and Teresa Clarke Verizon Service Leader ANZ join Steve Nuttall and Mathew Wells to explore what changed for the customer during the Covid-19 crisis. They discuss the channels customers were forced to use, the effect on wait times, and try to answer the question, “Have customers been more tolerant and understanding, or more intolerant of poor service due to the impact of Covid-19?”


  • Episode 4:
    Cloud Platforms

    It’s one thing for companies to rapidly move away from legacy to cloud platforms. But when the pandemic drives everyone to move all the same time, how were cloud providers able to ensure that there was enough capacity to cope? Rod Lester from NICE inContact and JJ Bolton Verizon US discuss how the leading platform vendors dealt with an exponential rise in demand and the support issues this raised.



  • Episode 5:
    What happens next?

    It’s obvious that new ways of working will have an impact on CX in the future. But that’s not all it will affect. What will EX look like in the future? How will the workplace/workspace change? What technologies will be deployed? What channels will become the norm? How will companies manage risk around offshoring? Kris Lane of Air New Zealand and Cary Cusumano of Verizon US join Steve Nuttall and Mathew Wells to try and find answers to all these big questions.
