About the EEC
EEC is a highly responsive global network of corporate executives with significant experience in design, measurement, and delivery of Customer Experience (CX). EEC‘s members comprise a tight network of like-minded peers who help each other to improve service delivery and client outcomes. The willingness of each member to share their know-how, ideas, and advice contributes to the success of the network and benefits their clients. EEC was founded in 2017 and currently operates worldwide.
EEC members know that the world is changing—quickly. We know that customers are in control and believe that businesses must adapt to meet their needs in customer-friendly ways.
We approach Customer Experience from the perspective that it helps firms succeed at creating great value for their clients. Each EEC member brings tools and processes that enable organizations to envision and effect change.
Individually and as a group, we believe that:
- We live in a world of abundance (not scarcity)
- Companies should do more for their customers than to them
- Experience design works equally well for employees and shareholders as it does for customers
- The power of the whole is greater than the sum of its parts
- There’s no substitute for hard work
- Customer Experience is as much about people as it is about process, tech, and profits
Every member of the EEC is a seasoned veteran in the Customer Experience field. Each has held leadership positions in global companies and each has worked on breakthrough projects that have delivered transformative results. Membership is by invitation only and members are personally vetted—there are no strangers here. We advise clients on CX strategy using our own experiences supported by best-in-class practices. We also provide knowledge at the level of next-practice, in situations where finishing second or third isn’t good enough. That’s the power of having a global network of practitioners at your service.
The EEC doesn’t sell services. Its members do. So, you won’t find any BUY buttons or special offers here. You can work with any or all of us—some of the best CX strategists, game-changers, practitioners, thought leaders, speakers, and experience designers in the world. It’s up to you. However, when you work with any one of us, you will get access (through the member you select to work with) to all of us.
