Episode Summary

Conversations captivate us. Their speed, convenience, and familiarity make them a powerful tool for communicating with customers familiarly and naturally. Yet, many B2B organizations still need help with rising customer expectations and the art of having meaningful conversations with their customers. So how can brands balance genuine human connections with modern AI technology? The answer lies in Conversational AI, blending efficiency and personalization seamlessly.

Joining episode #147 of the Radically Transparent podcast is Ruth Zive, CMO of LivePerson. Ruth passionately discusses the nuances of measuring the ROI of AI and introduces the Conversational Flywheel as a way brands can measure the positive impact of conversational AI. She breaks down the flywheel approach and explains how it helps improve both customer understanding and service for B2B brands. Ruth also exposes a massive AI gap found in a recent study between business leaders’ enthusiasm to use AI and customers’ lack of trust in brands using it, challenging B2B marketing leaders to create the right playbooks to close this gap.
