Services in a Post-Pandemic World

Today, AVaaS can be an important tool as COVID19 is forcing companies to reconstruct how they work and collaborate. Physical spaces are rapidly evolving to support collaboration rather than individual work and the financial and service models that AVaaS supports allow for collaboration technology to be implemented at greater scale without taking on the complexities of servicing the technology.

In this panel, hear from PSNI CSPs as they discuss:

  • What does service look like in a post-pandemic world for your company?
  • What are the most significant trends and opportunities in “services” that AV/IT/UC companies should consider going forward?
  • Examples of the “stickiness” you have achieved with an end-user by having a Help Desk or NOC offering?
  • What KPIs are you looking closely at within the services business right now?
  • How does the sales team participate in the managed services model?
  • And more

Panelists Include:

  • Faye Bennett, Facilitator
  • Toby Wise, Snelling Business Systems, UK
  • Jean Pierre Overbeek, BIS | Econocom, The Netherlands
  • Jeremy Elsesser, Level 3 AV, United States
  • Diego Perez, Newtech Solutions Multimedia, Argentina

DAN HEATH: Upstream: The Quest to Solve Problems Before They Happen

So often in our organizations and communities, we fall into a cycle of reaction. A problem happens, and we respond. We fight fires. We contend with emergencies. Researchers call this "tunneling": We don't see the big picture, and we don't think about the future, we just keep pushing forward from one crisis to the next. What if instead we could shift our energies upstream -- uncovering and addressing the source of those problems? In this talk, Heath will reveal how some leaders have learned to spot problems in advance: There's a school district that can predict which students will drop out -- 4 years before graduation. There's an internet service company that can predict which customers are likely to cancel their subscriptions -- as early as two weeks after they sign up! When we shift from downstream response to upstream planning, it can cause miracles: One company eliminated 25 million customer support calls by asking, "How can we make sure our customers never need to call us?" And one nation in Europe has almost eliminated teenage substance abuse by asking, "How can we create a teenage culture that offers such compelling sober activities that teens simply don't feel like drinking or doing drugs?"

In this featured keynote, you’ll:

  • Learn the three forces that push us downstream and how to adapt.
  • How to use the powerful levers to start preventing problems before they happen.
  • How to avoid being in a cycle of reactive behaviors.

John Brandt: Customer Value Innovation

Where is the hidden value in your business today – and where will it migrate in the next 10 years?

In this session, Brandt tackles this essential business question from several complementary angles:

  • Brand: What does your brand really mean?
  • Customers: What do they really want?
  • Innovation: How do you create value beyond your product or service?
  • Future: Where will customer seek new value in 10 years?
  • Commoditization: How do you avoid pressures to commoditize your offering?

The world is going to see more economic change in the next 5 years than we have seen in the last 100 years. 2021 will be transformational as trends super-charged by the pandemic fully exert themselves on the economy. AI, robots, Zoom, ESG and bitcoin are just a few of the extraordinary tools being leveraged right now to help business overcome, adapt and thrive. Are you aligning yourself for what will occur? As a futurist and economist, Andy dives deep into exploring how innovation, policy changes and societal shifts drive opportunities for clients. Are you thinking about how to run your business better or how you can grow it faster? How are you challenging yourself with new ideas, new concepts, new innovation? Can you understand the economic forces driving change to lead you in transforming your business and adapting your strategy to take control of the future?

In this session you’ll hear about:

  • Updates on virus and a Biden administration’s new policies
  • Key trends supercharged by the virus
  • Opportunities for growth
5:15:00 PM

Julian Treasure: Sound Affects

Transform your relationship with sound. Most of sound around us is accidental, and unpleasant. We stand on street corners shouting over noise and pretending it doesn’t exist. This habit of suppressing sound has meant our relationship with sound has become largely unconsciousness. There are four major ways sound is affecting you at all time, in this session well raise them in your consciousness today.

This session will focus on:

  • The four powerful effects of sound on all human beings
  • A discovery of the four steps to good sound in any space
  • And exploring the skill of conscious listening and take away powerful exercises to improve listening in all situations
