Interview: IOTA Workshop “Contact Centre of the Future: Digital Transformation Best Practices”

In recent weeks, IOTA has been engaged in various technical events. From 7th to 9th November 2023, we had the pleasure of hosting the second fully face-to-face technical activity of our 2023 Work Programme, the IOTA Workshop “Contact Centre of the Future: Digital Transformation Best Practices” in Budapest, Hungary. It was a real pleasure seeing some familiar and lots of new faces in the conference room, especially as the last in-person meeting for this activity happened in 2019 – just before the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Aside from the insightful and wide-ranging presentations, this Forum was also notable for its friendly and inclusive environment. This friendly environment made it easy to start and join conversations between plenaries so I corralled some attendees from participating member countries and got them to share some thoughts about the event. In the following interviews, they reveal their main takeaways from the three-day activity.
