Introduction to CX online course
There is a lot of Customer Experience (CX) professionals out there working to deliver insights that their organisations can use to improve stakeholder value – across customers, employees & the organisation.
But the CX Team typically represent only a few folks across organisations with dozens, hundreds and even thousands of employees.
And it takes everyone in the company to make great CX outcomes happen.
And what does CX even mean? Even within the industry, there is often confusion about what customer experience encompasses.
So we created this special Introduction to CX workshop to help everyone understand what CX is (and isn’t). Because that’s where it begins when you want everyone to contribute to great CX outcomes.
Drawn from our intensive CX Management / CCXP Exam Preparation Workshop, our Introduction to CX isn’t only content-rich – it’s fun. We know because that’s what everyone tells us.
We cover what CX is, what it looks like and why it matters. And how it compares and contrasts to Customer Service.
Your participants will go back to work with depth & breadth in CX – that helps turn the conversations in your organisation to ‘how can I help you get there’. Not just ‘oh no, another transformation.’
Let us help you inspire the people around you – in Management, Customer Service, Marketing, Finance, IT, Engineering, Procurement, Legal and more – to care about your CX ambitions and why it’s so crucial to business today.
Who should do this course?
We’ve been teaching CX courses since 2001 and whilst many of our participants seek to become CX Leaders and Consultants, it’s also becoming clear that there are others who want to increase their awareness and understanding of CX practices and principles without striving to be a CX practitioner.
The Introduction to CX online course is delivered over a single 4-hour session to fast-track CX Learnings with typical attendees for this course including:
- Senior Executives and Managers who want to understand the various components of CX and how and why it’s critical to business success.
- Sales and Marketing professionals who want to broaden their understanding of Customer Experience and why it matters.
- Contact Centre and Customer Service professionals who want to broaden their understanding of Customer Experience (CX) and improve their career opportunities.
- Employees of organisations that already have CX Leaders & CCXPs who want colleagues & employees in their organisation to better understand CX in a practical, motivating & engaging way.
If you are looking to become a CX practitioner or consultant, or want a deeper level of CX understanding and/or are preparing for the CCXP exam we recommend the more advanced Customer Experience Fundamentals Course (which is an 18-hour course) >

Introduction to CX Course Modules
The Introduction to Customer Experience online course is broadly split into three modules delivered over the 4-hour online session.
Module 1. Understanding Customer Experience
Customer Experience isn’t Customer Service on steroids. And it’s not about buying the latest technology or offering another channel.
It’s about understanding the Customer’s perception of your organisation and then proactively doing something about it.

There isn’t just ‘one’ kind of experience. Crafting & communicating the CX Vision makes sure that everyone in the organisation knows what kind of experience we will deliver.
And we have to consider both who we are – and what customers want – to put together that great CX Vision we can all rally around.

- Inputs to the CX Vision – Voice of Customer
