By stimulating the emotional and intellectual and creating unique experiences in the appropriate venues, vendors are able to build relationships at the highest possible levels inside customer organizations. C-Suite Engagement Programs can also be used to invite prospective customers to demonstrate the value of building a relationship with a particular vendor.

A Customer Advisory Board enables the most strategic customers to share insights and recommendations with each other and with the senior management from the vendor organization.
