BusinessGreen webinar, hosted in association with Accor, to offer tips on effective green consumer engagement
This interactive webinar will explore the best practices for engaging with customers to help them reduce their environmental impacts, adding value for the customer and improving the supplier's performance in the process.
In many industries, environmental impacts are largely dependent upon end-users' behaviour. Yet, how can companies be sure that they are engaging with customers in the right way and on the right topics?
To get a better understanding of this, Accor led an innovative and world first study to get an in-depth knowledge of guests' expectations and their behaviour in terms of sustainable development.
This webinar, hosted in association with hospitality giant Accor, will look at the secrets of effective consumer engagement and provide tips and best practices on how firms are successfully working with their customers to significantly reduce environmental impacts.
The webinar will take place at 3pm on Monday January 16th 2012. To register to take part in this free webinar click here.
