Engaged & Productive In The New Reality

Nov 19, 2020 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

A great insight into managing remote contact centre teams! 

Join us in this online-live event as we discuss with leaders in the contact centre industry what is needed to lead engaged and productive remote contact centre teams.

How do you keep contact centre teams engaged when you can’t have them in the office at one time?

How do you ensure teams remain productive working from home?

What is the new reality for contact centres?

Over these past few months, contact centres around the World have had to accelerate their plans to work remotely.

With the return to the office plans seemingly unclear for both the government and organisations and expectations changing for what is possible with remote working, there is a need for an exploration of emerging practices that are supporting contact centre teams succeed in a virtual environment.

Find out all this and more as we invite industry leaders to join Director Sean McGinn for a conversation on this challenging topic.

About the Guests:

Host: Sean McGinn, Director, The Agile Contact Centre

Sean spent 20 years working in operations at one of the world’s best-known organisations, General Electric. There, he learned the art and science of operational leadership, and how to improve systems of work in order for people to harness their potential and deliver unforgettable experiences.

In 2010, he started seeing ‘agile’ in practice while working with technology delivery projects and saw a new possibility. Applying this way of thinking to solve problems within teams, Sean is now reinventing the contact centre world, and shares these stories through The Agile Contact Centre podcast.

Sean has worked with teams of up to 300 people across Australia and overseas. His experience covers brand launches, embedding new vision and values, new product introductions, technology implementations and migrations, and helping teams effectively navigate remote working.

Sean is genuine and authentic and provides clients with the structure and coaching they need to bring possibilities to life.

The result is human-centred, customer-focused solutions that provide great experiences and deliver better results by identifying and removing wasteful processes and systems of work.

Outside of work, Sean spends his spare time learning Spanish, playing the guitar and perfecting sourdough.
