    Beyond the Buzz: Real Strategies for Thriving in Customer Experience with Chris Hood

    Beyond the Buzz: Real Strategies for Thriving in Customer Experience with Chris Hood

    Welcome to another episode of Press 1 For Nick! Today we have a treat for our listeners as we dive into the world of customer experience and strategy with Chris Hood, the mastermind business strategist and a recognized customer experience guru.

    In this episode, Chris shuns the allure of inflated titles, underlining the importance of achievements over nominal status - a topic we thoroughly dissect, particularly the manipulation of titles for credibility in smaller businesses.

    As we navigate the complex intersection of AI and customer engagement, Chris expresses a prudent skepticism about the rush towards AI and emphasizes the undeniable power of human connection. This notion is echoed by a poignant Super Bowl commercial by Discover Card, reinforcing the need for personal interaction in an age of increasing automation.

    Furthermore, we explore the notion of Customer Value Alignment (CVA) through the intriguing Goldilock scale, debate the consequences of prioritizing profits over passion with an eye on the gaming industry, and discuss Disney's recent focus shift. The episode challenges businesses to hold fast to their foundational values while evolving with the unstoppable tides of technology and customer expectations.

    Join us as we venture into business strategy and customer experience where Nick and Chris share their insights on how to not just survive but thrive in the digital age.

It’s obvious Nick puts extraordinary effort in covering salient topics and finding guests that are authentic and truly care about being a positive force in this world - the insights they bring to bear are still mind-blowing every. single. time.

Awesome Podcast

So far I have listened to the John O’Leary episode and I have the Chris Voss episode up next. Nick and John both have awesome insight about perspective, mindset, and overall outlook on life. They also do a great job of applying these things to the customer experience. I plan to listen to Press 1 for Nick regularly and would recommend it to anyone!

ErycEyl ,

Smart and real

What I appreciate most about Nick's podcast is that he has authentic conversations with a wide variety of folks. It never feels like Q&A or guests reciting the same talking points they give everywhere, but like an honest conversation between peers about topics that are relevant to CX and customer service, but also have resonance well beyond those areas.
