Cambridge, Massachusetts (PRWEB) August 12, 2014
Access Development’s Vice President of Partnership Marketing, Dave Bona, will be a featured faculty member and panelist at PYMNTS.com’s Summer School on Wednesday, August 13. The event will be attended by more than 200 payments, mobile, technology, and retail executives.
Bona will join four executives from the financial services, retail, and loyalty industries to discuss the topic of “Acquiring and Retaining Profitable Customers.” Focusing on the changes in consumer behavior and purchasing habits, Bona will discuss how traditional customer loyalty now has to be earned through consistent relevance and engagement.
The panel will begin at 3:15pm ET at the Northwest Building on the campus of Harvard University. Click here for more information about Bona’s panel as well as the rest of the presenters and topics.
“A good product isn’t enough anymore to create a long-term connection with consumers,” Bona says. “Brands have to prove their relevance and engage with consumers constantly to forge that bond. That means emphasizing mobile technology and adding value in ways they maybe haven’t considered previously.”
