The Human Touch: Still the Midas Sales Touch in a Digital World

Just because technology can replace the work of a human doesn’t mean it always should.  No matter how good of a job technology can do, it still lacks the uniquely human ability to cater to the needs of the individual.  And while protocol and procedure might suggest one approach, a truly skilled adviser will assess the situation and adjust based on certain subtleties. In this session, Christian will share how advisers can remain relevant in this tech-heavy era, and ensure you are both irreplaceable and more attractive than an AI solution.

Are You a Hero?

Years of research has shown that the success rate of digital transformation efforts is consistently low — in fact, less than 30% of attempted digital transformations succeed. One of the biggest reasons for many of these failures is the failure to also build a digital culture that positively supports and encourages users to embrace the tools being introduced. It is therefore critical to ensure that the users of new technology view it as a strategic driver to support and enhance their work performance, rather than a bothersome impediment. This session will discuss what it means to create and embrace a digital culture, and look at who the real hero of the digital adoption process is...the technology, the IT team or YOU!
