TouchPoints Champions Update

We held our second TouchPoints Champions meeting last month. There was a great turnout which resulted in a really engaging and collaborative session which saw the champions working together to create “day in the life” profiles. In our next session on the 30th November we will be announcing the winning team who will deservedly receive a fantastic prize.

The TouchPoints software bureaux  were also present, they demonstrated how their programs could help users get more insight and value out of TouchPoints and they also discussed how roadblocks could be overcome. We are really looking forward to keeping up the momentum in our next session, taking place here at the IPA on 30th November, prior to our subscriber drinks.

We also have the rare opportunity to welcome a very inspiring speaker to join us early next year for our fourth TouchPoints Champions meeting, so watch this space….
