Topic: Customer Experience, Emotion, and the “New Extraordinary”

SBT Roundtable with Dave Goodman

November 25, 2020

9:00 AM Pacific
Note: This is a members-only event. Non-members are welcome to join us - and join us.

Dave Goodman is an amazing resource. You will meet few people in your life who have managed projects with budgets in the billions of dollars. Dave’s done that a lot, across several organizations.

Seriously: Dave has overseen the production of nearly 10,000 live shows, tours and events with financial responsibility for over one billion dollars in content development, production and operations.

And since the core of his career was with The Walt Disney Company, he helped developed the concepts of customer experience that we all take for granted. In addition to that, Dave was central in developing emotion-based experience management.

Our goal with the SBT Roundtable is to look at interesting things from a different perspective. That fits perfectly with this month’s guest.

I know he has some great stories to tell. Even if you’re not a regular visitor to Disneyland, you’ll love the CX (customer experience) discussion.

This is truly a rare opportunity to talk with someone who has had huge impact on the way products and services are delivered in the modern era.

A few highlights from Dave’s career:

  • The Disneyland Lifetime Achievement Award
  • Vice President and Executive Producer of Entertainment for The Walt Disney Company
  • The Disneyland Resort
  • Tokyo Disney Resort
  • The Walt Disney Special Events Group
  • Vice President and Executive Producer of Entertainment for SeaWorld Orlando and Discovery Cove

Please sign up for this Roundtable and send in your questions.

And, of course, join us live!
