The Best of Oracle MCX

What a great show!

Team stensul is back from a great show at Oracle's Modern Customer Experience 2018 earlier this month. Thousands of partners, customers, and friends of Oracle gathered at McCormick Place in Chicago Illinois for a week of insights, inspiration, and learning about the newest and most transformative technology solutions in the world of marketing, customer service, and many other areas.

Team Stensul was out in full force in the Windy City and hosted several events and met with several customers and friends. Check the recap below for anything you may have missed!

Do What You Can't

Barry's Bootcamp!

What better way to kick off an exhausting week of conferencing then a kick-ass workout? Team stensul and a highly energetic group of customers and friends took to Barry's Bootcamp River North for 60 minutes of high intensity interval training. With free smoothies and some stensul merch, we were ready to take on #ModernCX.

Watch the keynotes

Oracle MCX boasted a strong roster of keynote speakers: author Cheryl Strayed, Global Head of Fan Experience for Fanatics Carolyne Matseshe-Crawford, journalist and author Julian Guthrie, and of course Oracle CEO Mark Hurd.

Key Takeaways/Quotes

The insights were easy to find at #ModernCX. From the keynotes to the breakout sessions to attendee's own takeaways, it was impossible to leave Chicago NOT full of inspiration and new ways to think about customer experience. 

Here are just a few:

  • “I don’t know how to sell products, and more importantly, I don’t really care about selling products, What I do know how to sell is ideas. More often than not, when a company sells me an idea and does that effectively, I will show up and buy the product.” - Casey Neistat

  • "What is the modern customer experience? The way I see it, it’s a better customer experience provided by the company that embraces technology, such as AI, chatbots, content marketing, social media, web and mobile experiences, and much more." - Shep Hyken

  • “The other thing is that you have to always challenge yourself to be brave, to say, ‘I’m afraid to fail or fall short,’ but then do it anyway. Courage to me is not success. Courage to me is doing what’s hard regardless of the outcome.” - Cheryl Strayed

Xena the Sloth!

Team stensul stole the show at Oracle MCX on Wednesday, April 11th, when Xena the Sloth, the unofficial stensul mascot, entered McCormick Place's expo hall. For two hours stensul commanded a hundred plus adoring fans of Xena, offering a chance to take an up close picture with the two-toed sloth and chat with her handlers from local Scales & Tails in Chicago. 

Here are a few of the great pics:
