Getting Intimate with CX Ep 4: How not to overstep customer boundaries, according to Slingshot CEO, Karen Lawson

In Episode 4 of this new podcast series, BrandHook MD, Pip Stocks, talks with Karen Lawson about what’s missing amid all the technology and data helping organisations improve their customer experience approach, and how to balance knowledge with trust, authenticity and a human touch.

Karen Lawson is an award-winning business executive and leader in the digital industry. As the CEO of Slingshot, Australia’s leading corporate accelerator program, Karen is using her proven experience in driving reinvention and transformation to help the world’s biggest brands stay ahead of disruption.

Prior to her role at Slingshot, Karen served as CEO of CareerOne, a joint venture between News Limited and Monster Worldwide. With a remit to forge a new digital strategy, Karen restructured the business from a traditional job board into a leading targeting and digital business offering media, employer branding, SaaS and sourcing solutions. She also served as General Manager – Business at Yahoo!7 where she held full commercial and operational responsibility for data, advertising, publishing, technology, search, mobile and strategic partnerships, including the Microsoft Bing alliance.

Karen’s commitment to driving innovation and disruption but also to promoting female leadership resulted in being selected as UN ambassador for Womens Entrepreneurship Day, a Nominee for Telstra Woman of the year, selected Pledge 1%’s Women Who Lead, and the Australian Growth Company Awards 2015.

Distributed through CMO from IDG, this 11-part podcast series by BrandHook explores customer intimacy, what makes a great customer experience and which brands Australian leaders think are doing it well. It does this by asking leading brand makers 7 key questions about what makes excellent CX tick.
