This month we have as our speaker Chris Sykes, CEO of Volume Ltd who will be speaking about:

“Now Generation Customer Experience”

Chris will show and share real life use cases and examples of how early adopters are realising significant competitive advantage and a faster route to value from using AI and other emerging engagement technologies.
Chris will also be joined by two robots that will become more accessible and integral in our working and home lives.
Chris established Volume in 1997 with the vision that technology would rapidly permeate the sales and marketing operations of the future.
In 2000, Chris founded Then (UK) Ltd a developer of Marketing Resource Management (MRM) software. In 2002, Then (UK) Ltd was recognised by Gartner and appeared in its 2002/03 MRM Magic Quadrant, as a niche vendor. Then (UK) Ltd was acquired by Aprimo inc. the only vendor named as ‘leader’ in the MRM Magic Quadrant in July 2004. Chris exited Then (UK) Ltd and continued to spearhead Volume.
As a futurist, Chris took the decision in 2015 to pivot the business towards Artificial Intelligence and looked at how it could be applied within a sales, marketing and customer experience context. Chris coined the term ‘experiential AI’ and has since built the three pillars that underpin EAI – AI-powered Conversational Platforms, Humanoid Robotics & VR devices and Augmented Reality. Chris is a regular speaker and panellist at AI events and showcases.

The event includes open networking, a buffet breakfast (bacon rolls, croissants, fruit, etc) and news updates from the team, local businesses, government and community groups in addition to our key note session..
