Enjoy a Fireside Chat with Gerd Schenkel,
Executive Director at Telstra Digital
LEARN – SHARE – NETWORK The CDO Summit is the premier event for digital & data leaders Tuesday, 01 March, 2016 Sydney, Australia
Don’t let anyone call you a “dumb-pipe.”
That’s a telecom industry term for outdated internet providers, unable to compete with insurgents like Google Voice and Skype when it comes to calling services.
To avoid the dread label, it’s best to talk to Gerd Schenkel, Executive Director at Telstra Digital since 2011.
Within two years of establishing the digital division at the Australian telecom, the company’s:
* Digital service transactions increased 69%
* Digital sales increased 102%
* Number of digital customer contacts per month was up 130%, to 23 million.
That’s why we are honored to announce that Gerd Schenkel will be the featured headliner at the inaugural Sydney CDO Summit on 1 March 2016 at the UTS Business School and presented by Accenture Digital.
In this intimate fireside chat, Gerd will discuss how he was able to provide superior digital services by openly engaging his audience. And to practice what he preaches, he will include you, the audience.
Other than a brief presentation, the majority of the fireside chat will be a dedicated interactive session where Gerd will take questions and engage in open dialogue with the audience.
