Dan Brookman – CEO – UseToggle.com & Airship.co.uk

Dan has over 30 years experience in the hospitality industry, having worked in pubs and bars before opening The Deep End in his early 20s, converting an 18,000 sq ft Victorian swimming pool into a 600 capacity live music venue backed with £500k from the Bank of Ireland.

In October 2018 they released their latest platform Toggle, a platform that helps brands pre-sell revenue, and in October 2019 they raised a £500k investment from Mercia Tech.

Key discussion areas

We’ll be talking about what are the key differences between customer engagement and customer incentives. Also, we’ll ask whether traditional loyalty programmes are cost effective in terms of retention.  We want to ask how best to launch a new loyalty programme. Are Loyalty programmes really cost-effectively in terms of customer up-selling and cross-selling? Looking to the future we would like to know what do the panel think will be the hottest technology solutions for Loyalty for 2021?

Future webinars include the following:

Jul 29, 2020  -Technology transformation – New World of Payments & Rewards

Aug 26, 2020  – Employee Engagement & Improving Motivation

Sep 23, 2020  – Reward Innovation in Fintech and Start-ups
