Today was a great day in New York; the first day of our Customer Experience Forum. The Grand Hyatt was rocking as we had about 700 people on site. I had a fun time with my opening keynote speech — combining customer experience and the Wizard Of Oz. Hopefully people enjoyed it. I'll be posting more about my speech on my personal blog.

At the end of the day, I announced the winners of Forrester's first ever Voice Of The Customer (VoC) Award. So, let me say congratulations to our three winners: Experian, Progressive, Vanguard. They all actively collected feedback and put that information to use, showing significant benefits. Here are the nomination forms from the winners. They're worth downloading!

We ended up with 40 excellent nominations and named 11 finalists: 

  • Cardinal Health

Congratulations to all of the winners and finalists!
