How do your customers view your business?
True customer loyalty is earned over time, it should be based on building emotional connections rather than short term manipulations, so if you’re relying on discounts, rebates and promotions to drive loyalty you may want to re-think your strategy!
In this session, well...
Incentivesmart mission is to help ambitious businesses build #RewardingRelationships and trust with their customers, channels and employees. They achieve this through the expert delivery of award-winning loyalty and engagement programmes designed to drive performance, improve knowledge, open up communication, and to reward and recognise desired behaviours, resulting in measurable return on investment.

Richard is a serial entrepreneur, proud dad of two, speaker, and leader of a passionate group of Incentivesmarties. Together they are on a mission to help businesses create more #RewardingRelationships with their employees and customers.
Having been a bit of an entrepreneur throughout his school years it was inevitable that he would start his first real business at the age of just 19. Richard has had an interesting business journey since then, including being offered investment on BBC Dragon’s Den back in 2005, but that’s a whole different webisode. In the financial crash of 2009 Richard’s events and retail businesses suffered and he lost everything, but a casual chat with an old customer about dealer loyalty sowed the seeds for what would later become Incentivesmart.
