BAI Executive Roundtable: Contact Centers

Financial services leaders need actionable insights and meaningful connections to make smart business decisions and drive positive change within their organization. To facilitate this, BAI has created its executive roundtable series to foster an environment of safe sharing and open peer dialogue that moves the financial services industry forward while helping businesses and communities thrive.


The BAI Executive Roundtable: Contact Centers represents the only peer networking group of its kind, focusing exclusively on senior contact center executives in retail financial services.

New this year: This interactive forum will be co-sited with the BAI Executive Roundtable: Channel Strategy. This unique opportunity will equip you to better understand the role of the contact center within the overall distribution network as well as give you the opportunity to interact with a broader group of senior decision makers. The agenda also includes joint sessions with these two executive groups, providing more in-depth perspectives and context for industry challenges and opportunities.

The forces of disruption continue to force change on the financial services industry and the contact center as well. The KPI’s of contact center efficacy - such as First Call Resolution (FCR), customer satisfaction and reduced Handle Time (HT) - remain top of mind as executives consider what role robotic automation and artificial intelligence (A.I.) might play in driving future efficiencies. Digitization continues to factor into new workforce models, while requiring agents to learn new skills. Customers have added opportunities to engage with the call center through digital channels, yet call volume remains high: even amidst self-service. Meanwhile: How are contact centers managing fraud? How should they approach sales? Is outbound an option? And how do leaders improve the agent experience to attract and retain talent?

Join us to discuss these pressing questions, exchange best practices with peers and so much more!
