Designing & Launching a Customer Advisory Council [Free eBook]

In a dynamic, complex business world, many leaders are asking how they can improve true customer intimacy and better understand the direction of their industries.

One excellent way to solve these issues is through a Customer Advisory Council.  

A Customer Advisory Council (CAC) is a method for drawing deeper, more unfiltered insight into the wants, needs, and opinions of customers and prospects. A CAC creates formal and informal interactions of a company’s top customers or prospects to provide a platform for them to deliver open and honest feedback.

The specific elements of a Customer Advisory Council, such as format, style, length, and location, are entirely dependent on an individual company’s objectives and resources.
