Ready to Share Your CX Story on Stage & In-Person?

“No one ever made a decision because of a number. They need a story.” ~ Daniel Kahneman


We’re seeking CX practitioners to share their stories with the CX community. 

Each of us have a story to tell. Whether it’s about how to win support for your CX programs or how you’ve managed recent CX management challenges – there are nuggets of wisdom in every story.

Would you like to share your CX story live on stage? CX Forums is the place for you!


Call For Speakers Now Open!

Our regional summits feature CX professionals sharing real stories about challenges they faced and what they’ve done to make a difference in their companies.

The CX Forums Experience Summit format is based on TED Talks style of storytelling. Speakers have 15 minutes to share their stories.

You don’t have to be a professional speaker to tell a good story. We can provide training resources for speaking if needed.

We welcome speaker proposals all year long for CX Forums Regional Summits. Please submit your proposals at least 60 days before each event date.

CX Forums speaker and topic selection is guided by local advisory boards in each market.

Storytelling Format

Based on the TED Talks format, CX Forums Experience Summit speakers share short stories (15 minutes) of how they have applied CX fundamentals and new innovative CX strategies or technology tools to improve their customer experiences.

Think of your talk as being like a TED Talk – short and focused on one main topic with story telling that presents 1) a situation, 2) a need (tension) and 3) what you did to resolve the problem.
