Voice of the CCO: Monte Salsman on the 4th Annual CCO Summit

This is my first Summit – it’s the October 2012 Summit – and I found it to be very valuable. The level of participant was extremely high; the level of knowledge exceeded my expectations and one of the things I thought was very encouraging and helpful was the open dialog.

It was a group of peers who were very talented who, I thought, were also willing to be vulnerable and humble. And so there was not an attempt to sugarcoat everything. I thought there were very realistic war stories about what worked and what did not work.

And I think the thing that excited me the most is – the overall theme for me was – how to bring the voice of the customer closer to the C-suite. There were some very talented and capable people who gave great ideas on how to do that and how to continue to do it with a higher degree of excellence.
