“With two full days of intense learning and content, X4 is deeply pragmatic and practical, but it goes far beyond what attendees learn–the magic of X4 comes from what they feel,” said Qualtrics Chief Category & Brand Officer Kylan Lundeen. “X4 attendees will be inspired to raise their own bar and use the XM Platform to create the next wave of customer and employee experiences–the moves that shift markets, challenge industries and define careers.”
In 2023, companies need to focus on the essentials–finding and keeping customers, retaining key employees, bringing the right products and services to market, and mitigating risks. The X4 agenda gives attendees the opportunity to learn from leading brands about using experience management to delight customers and employees, create and maintain deep-rooted connections, and drive down costs.
Joining Ryan Reynolds and Chip and Joanna Gaines on the main stage lineup are Malala Yousafzai and Martha Stewart.
Malala Yousafzai is a girls’ education activist, the youngest Nobel Peace Prize laureate and founder of Malala Fund. She is a catalyzing force in the fight against the ideologies that prohibit educational opportunities for women globally and the systemic byproducts of violence against women, poverty and displacement that threaten women’s freedoms and futures. She will deliver a headline keynote at X4 on International Women’s Day about dismantling inequality and the power of developing women leaders.
Martha Stewart is an entrepreneur, a best-selling author of 99 to date lifestyle books, an Emmy Award-winning television show host and a creator of the first multi-channel lifestyle company, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia. Reaching more than 100 million devoted fans on a monthly basis through her magazines, television shows, books and products for the home sold on Martha.com and at multiple retail and online outlets, Martha is the “go-to” source for the homemaker. In this conversation, Martha will discuss building a resilient brand through the good, the bad and the amazing.
