WHAT: Forrester Research, Inc., (Nasdaq: FORR) Forrester’s Marketing & Strategy Forum EMEA 2010: Multidimensional Customer Engagement

Strategies for driving customer engagement continue to rapidly change. For the past several years, companies have been weaving social media into their customer relationship management and marketing strategies. As more-powerful mobile devices became commonplace, many companies have added mobile as a channel for marketing and service provision. Multi- and cross-channel experiences are becoming more customary, as companies strive to customize relationships with individuals. Companies have invested in each of these areas – but often as isolated initiatives.

Today, companies need to leverage all of these tools to drive engagement. Forrester calls this combined approach “Multidimensional Customer Engagement” – mixing social, mobile, multichannel, and media to create a well-rounded customer experience. Multidimensional engagement is becoming table stakes for companies seeking to attract and retain high-value customers. Understanding best practices in each area of engagement – and then understanding how these dimensions can best work together – will help you drive your company’s marketing and strategy efforts.

At Forrester’s Marketing & Strategy Forum EMEA 2010, you will hear how marketing and strategy leaders from major global companies are already successfully meeting the challenge. The exclusive research findings and case studies you will see will help you conceive and execute your own multidimensional customer engagement strategy. The Forum will also show how to transform the organization to meet the needs of empowered consumers, which is detailed in the new Forrester book Empowered. During his keynote presentation, Empowered co-author Josh Bernoff will showcase the framework that companies can use to reach out to the empowered consumer.
