THE CHIEF CUSTOMER OFFICER FORUM
The Chief Customer Officer Forum is an exclusive meeting place for passionate and knowledgable customer advocates and leaders. The purpose is to share successes and failures in confidence, to discuss personal and industry futures and to improve professional working lives. Energy, sanity and a great experience in itself. No powerpoint.
Now in its 11th year, membership is by invitation and referral.
LimeBridge GLOBAL ALLIANCE
When we founded Budd we had an ambition to be the Amazon of consulting. So contacting friend Bill Price in the US, who ran Amazon’s customer side, seemed the right thing to do. He joined our advisory board and formed his own consultancy at the same time. We both thought… let’s go global on day one! So we formed LimeBridge from our alumni and the have worked closely ever since, sharing best practices, clients and project work globally.
CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE PRO BONO
We work with charities, social enterprises and public bodies even if they have no budget. We’ve always helped clients with free access to ideas & information. And now we help good causes get professional volunteers for short interventions or longer relationships.
Our advisory board has helped Budd develop over the years, both commercially and personally. We also extend our work into helping other organisations and individuals develop over time. We believe in sharing information freely and are always happy to mentor and just be there when there’s a tough problem. Our relationships matter to us.
