Aceik & Sitecore’s Whisky Tasting & CX Roundtable

Last week, Aceik and Sitecore brought together 18 digital experts from around Australia to discuss customer experience – the trends, challenges and risks facing a new project in 2021. And it wouldn’t be a robust discussion without a little whisky tasting – kindly delivered by Melbourne’s The Elysian Whisky Bar.

Our moderator introduced two topics then guests were divided into groups of 6 to discuss. Upon return to the main track, guests then shared their unique discussion. And today, we wanted to share the key highlights.
