Fitronics: Connecting the industry

On 3rd and 4th October Fitronics hosted ConnectCX, a customer experience focussed event in partnership with Proinsight, and the annual CoursePro Summit for leisure industry professionals.

Across these two days Fitronics was joined by industry renowned speakers including;

Dr Paul Bedford from Retention Guru who spoke at ConnectCX about Disney’s imagineering teams and what it takes to deliver a positive and superior experience across every level in a business.

Jill Spencer at Proinsight who talked about mystery shopping to understand and highlight any opportunities to affect positive change through data monitoring and tracking.

Keith Smith spoke on both days on the importance of creating moments that lead to feelings and ultimately drive behaviour  – and how, through the use of language and simple communication, brands can relate to their customers in a more positive manner.

Opening the CoursePro Summit on the second day was Katie Ellis Carrigg, Head of Partnerships at Liverpool FC Foundation who delivered an inspirational and motivational session on inclusivity and diversity within sports.

David Minton, founder of LeisureDB shared the latest data, trends and insights from the State of the Swimming Industry Report 2023, provoking debate and discussion around the number of closures across private and public pools.

As well as the keynotes, panel discussions also took place. Day 1 was hosted by Sales Training expert Marina Thomas with fellow industry leaders from Pro-Insight, Fitronics, and Alliance Leisure.

Day 2 saw Steve Scales, Chief Revenue Officer at Gladstone Software lead the conversation with figureheads from Swim England, Virgin, UK Active, Leisure DB and Smith Training.

“The talks throughout and the expert panel were really insightful, a good level of knowledge was delivered whilst keeping it relatable and with realistic outcomes and deliverables.”
