Hospitality Forum
“Back to Basics: Creating Customer Experiences”

Wednesday, April 11, 2018
2018年04月11日 星期三
10:00 – 18:00
@Les Roches Jin Jiang International Hotel Management College Shanghai

Dear Members and Friends of SwissCham,

We are excited to have our fifth Les Roches Jin Jiang Hospitality Forum on 11th April 2018, which will cover this important topic in detail. Our key speakers cover the many nuances of Hospitality today and with the rapid expansion of the industry, there is a need for us to focus at the importance of fundamentals; how creating “customers experience is the new marketing”, to quote Derek Sivers, founder of CD Baby. They will give great insights on the importance of Hospitality values in their respective fields of work, including luxury hotel, famous haute couture fashion house, Nespresso and personalized butler services.

Insights are focusing on first impressions but neglecting the importance of last impressions. Secondly customer experiences depend on subtle, textural impressions as they do on grand gestures. Thirdly, organizations are relying on the bosses however discount or fail to make use of front line, customer-facing employees with deep and intimate knowledge. Fourthly, Hospitality neglects the innovations and best practices of other industries. Lastly, the customers have a hard time articulating, or even knowing what is valuable to them; thus a challenge in creating or improving the customer experience.

In addition to these key speakers, selected Les Roches Jin Jiang postgraduate students will participate in the forum through a mini-workshop and presenting further food for thought.

The Hospitality Forum will start off with on-campus lunch followed by keynote speeches and a panel discussion to “connect the dots”. The audience will be composed of guests from a various Chambers of Commerce in Shanghai, external visitors and a blend of undergraduate and postgraduate students from our college.

Best regards,

Your SwissCham Team
