Panel Discussions
Panel #1 – ZOOMED OUT! – Resilience and the Effect of Doing Business Virtually

Since the reality of Covid-19, energy companies have been doing meetings virtually instead of in person. This has had a profound effect on work habits, attire, work schedules, communication methodology, hiring and firing, and the ability to motivate and delegate to employees.  Companies who have survived and thrived have become more resilient.  Our panelists will discuss how much “Zoom Fatigue” they have and what they are doing about it.

Panel #2 – Reliability in an Unreliable World – Sponsored by Customized Energy Solutions

How can retailers improve reliability for their customers; Energy Storage, better demand management, more UPS systems, increased reliance on the grid from working from home but with storms and disruptions being common how can work effectively continue?  Should companies provide associates home battery systems?

Panel #3 – 9-1-1 – How to Protect Yourself From Bad Marketers

“One bad apple don’t spoil the whole bunch” is a phrase in a famous song by the late Michael Jackson. Unfortunately, this is not always the case in the world of retail energy marketing. Bad actors without integrity DO spoil the business for everyone else. Panelists will discuss ways that they protect themselves and their firms from bad marketers.

Panel #4 – Loving Your Customers Before & After the Covidian Era

Panelists will discuss ways in which they make their customers feel special – before and after the Covid-19 pandemic. What has changed? What are customers demanding now more than ever before? How do we increase retention and reduce churn? How can we differentiate our message?

Panel #5 – Technology and the New Normal

More and more companies are using advanced technology – not just for back-office procedures or procurement – but for actual customer acquisition and growth. Learn how this is done.
