CX Summit
EMEA

CX, B2C Marketing, & Digital Business Leaders

June 24 – 26, 2024  |  London & Digital

The Customer-Obsessed Enterprise Award recognises companies that drive business success by putting customers at the center of their leadership, strategy, and operations.

Customer-Obsessed Enterprise Award - EMEA

Does your company focus relentlessly on customers? Has this focus resulted in big improvements for customers, employees, and the business? 

Forrester’s Customer-Obsessed Enterprise Award celebrates an organisation that exemplifies customer obsession by putting the customer at the centre of its leadership, strategy, and operations to achieve wins for customers, employees, and the business. Customer-obsessed businesses grow revenue, profitability, customer retention, and employee engagement at more than twice the rate of other companies. The Forrester Customer-Obsessed Enterprise Award will go to an organisation that demonstrates: 

  • Sharp and sustained customer focus in leaders’ decisions and behaviours, strategy at the corporate and functional levels, and day-to-day operations throughout the enterprise. 
  • Deep collaboration across the business — especially among marketing, customer experience, and digital teams but also with other functions (such as tech or HR) — and with partners to ensure customer obsession. 
  • Quantifiably better outcomes for customers, employees, and the business as a result. 

This award is open to organisations across industries that are headquartered in EMEA and have 1,000 or more employees. 

* Two executives from the winning enterprise will receive complimentary tickets to CX Summit EMEA 2024, taking place 24–26 June in London, as well as one-night hotel accommodation.  

Deadline to submit: 5 March, 2024
