McLean, VA, June 26, 2018 (Newswire.com) – ICMI has announced its speaker lineup for this year’s annual demo and conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. MetricNet is pleased to announce that, for the second consecutive year, Jeff Rumburg, Managing Partner of MetricNet, has been selected as a speaker. Jeff has been invited to present in two major tracks at the conference, including “Elevate Your Leadership” and “Achieve Metrics Nirvana.” There were hundreds of speaker proposal submissions for ICMI’s Contact Center Demo 2018, making the selection process very difficult and highly competitive. For those interested in attending, ICMI’s Contact Center Demo 2018 is taking place Nov. 12-14, 2018 at the Red Rock Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. Mr. Rumburg will be presenting “A New World Order – Managing Your Contact Center as a Business!” and “Turbocharge Your Metrics with Benchmarking!” In the Elevate Your Leadership track, he will present case studies and benchmarking data that illustrate a proven approach for managing the contact center as a business, and demonstrate how progressive organizations transform their contact centers from a mere cost of doing business into a strategic source of competitive advantage. In the Achieve Metrics Nirvana track, Mr. Rumburg will demonstrate through case studies how benchmarking enables contact centers to optimize their performance. He will discuss the Benchmarking Methodology, define the KPIs used for benchmarking, and provide performance data from MetricNet’s 2018 Contact Center Benchmark. “Most contact centers are unaware of the business metrics that must be leveraged to make the transformation from cost center to value center,” said Jeff Rumburg. “For the Elevate Your Leadership track, I will provide empirical data demonstrating how contact centers can effectively measure, quantify and communicate the ROI of customer care.” Those interested in hearing Mr. Rumburg speak on managing the contact center as a business should attend his session on Tuesday, Nov. 13, 2018 at 2:00 p.m., and those interested in hearing Mr. Rumburg speak on benchmarking should attend his session on Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2018 at 2:15 p.m. All those involved in the delivery and support of contact center services, and the fundamental concepts behind contact center management, are encouraged to attend. This includes Senior Level VPs and Directors, New and Experienced Managers, Team Leaders and Supervisors, Customer Support Professionals and Industry Analysts. Mr. Rumburg is the winner of the Ron Muns Lifetime Achievement Award, was named one of HDI’s Top 25 Thought Leaders in Technical Support and Service Management for 2016 and 2017, and has served on HDI’s strategic advisory board. He is co-founder and Managing Partner of MetricNet, LLC, where he is responsible for global strategy, product development, and client engagement delivery.
