CustomHER Experience: The Influence of the Female Consumer; The Decision Maker

40 Day Video Access

Although the female movement is interwoven into our social world and people preach “girl power,” this mindset hasn’t penetrated business branding or the experience businesses provide to women. Very few businesses focus on elevating “interaction” so that a brand experience includes a personal connection with the consumer and addresses their genuine interests and needs. This branding disconnect is a problem not only for female consumers but also for businesses that lose potential sales and women’s loyalty.

Katie has delivered this Brand Experience keynote across all industries around the world. CustomHER Experience sends the clear message that true power comes when businesses focus on providing a brand and consumer experience that women―the world’s most influential consumers―can’t live without. When businesses start doing that―and doing it well―they can cultivate trust, build loyalty, earn referrals, and make top-line sales, and their female customers won’t want to go anywhere else.

Learning Objectives:
• Understand the physiological difference between men and women and the differences in their buying behavior
• Learn how to transform the transactional service a woman currently receives into the alluring, interactional experience she craves, Identify the gaps in your current experience Breakdown the five ways to tailor your brand experience to HER; the decision maker
• Gain clarity on how to adjust their approach when interacting with customers, and ignite a spark in their teams and companies.

Empower HER in the Workplace, Create a FE + MALE Work Environment

40 Day Video Access

If women don’t enjoy working for you, why would they want to shop or buy from you? Even today, female-friendly workplace cultures are still scarce. You should be aware that the culture you foster within your business is a direct reflection of the ease and comfort of your customers. It is in the best interest of your company to build a culture that women can get behind. If you do this, both female employees and consumers will take notice!
Do you want to offer an experience she can’t live without? Then you’d better create a culture where women want to work.

The ultimate effect is that women feel comfortable buying from you. As the saying goes, happy wife, happy life. This is the same for your organization: happy female employees, happy female consumer, happy company (and higher profits!).

There are challenges women face in the workforce that most men do not; these challenges are illuminated during Katie’s keynote. Through research, shared stories, and case studies katie helps the audience to think differently about how to create an environment she wants to work in. Audiences will lean into the Fe+Male concept, being inspired to do differently so they can cultivate a more inclusive work environment.

Learning Objectives
• How to Attract, Hire and retain more female employees
• Uncover the steps to creating a Fe+Male culture
• Analyze what is currently missing in your current work environment
• Understand the power of stories told by women

Ever wonder how a hotel receives five stars? Do you look within your industry to level up your customer experience? Katie has distilled the five actions that, once executed, will elevate the experience you provide your customer. The first thing she stresses is to look OUTSIDE your industry.

The shift from a transactional economy to a connected one cannot be overlooked! When Bain and Company surveyed 300 organizations, 80% said they thought that they delivered an exceptional experience. In reality, only 8% of their 3000 customers agreed. Katie’s captivating, science based, keynote will open your eyes and motivate your team to shift the way they look at their customers.
