Last month, we hosted our annual Stella Summit 2020: Level Up.
Joining from the comfort of our homes, brands like Birchbox, sweetgreen, Walmart, ESPN, and more, gave us unprecedented insight into how they view the current customer experience landscape and how we can evolve in an increasingly digitally demanding world.
Here are five of our favorite quotes from our Stella Summit:
On the Importance of Delivering a Great Customer (and Employee) Experience
When talking about the importance of delivering a great experience both to your customers and your team members, there is no one better to discuss this with than Dre Allen. With over 16 years of experience under her belt, Dre understands the importance of making the employee experience just as great as their customer experience. One affects the other, after all.
Walmart has always prided itself on delivering exceptional customer experiences. Dave Harris is the leader in charge of making sure that this happens. He values his employees as much as the customers; he understands that a truly great customer experience starts with happy employees.
On How Happy Agents Create Happy Customers
Jen is one of the CX leaders who embraced the work-from-home mindset needed to succeed in 2020 and during lockdown early on. She and her team have put employee experience on the map while working from home, to make sure that her team is delivering the very best experience possible while putting a positive spin on a tough situation.

On the Value of Investing in Your CX Tech Stack
During SmartPak’s session about how QA can help to drive team performance, Stephanie emphasizes what a night and day difference having a QA solution was for her customer care team. Reporting helped SmartPak save time that they could now allocate to other projects, and closed that margin for error. Stephanie emphasized that they could “spend a lot more time on other things versus data collection, you know, more time on coaching our reps.”
On How to Better Coach and Train Front-line Agents
When talking about Building a Feedback Driven Culture, Micah put heavy emphasis on the use of positive reinforcement on his team over fear. In order to help your agents grow, you need to give them the training, resources, tools, and empowerment to really own that growth.
He closes his address with: “Over time, agents, through quality training and with QA, can seek whether or not there are certain areas where they can improve and do better in. And we have a program that allows our agents to have a pathway to success and emulate that and showcase that with our fans every day.”
Delivering Great Customer Experiences in 2021
Listening to leaders talk about employee and customer experience motivates all of us to be better and deliver the best experiences possible every day.
