She explained the need of building a balance between the customer expectations and the interaction from the organization to keep the relationship in alignment. To showcase that vividly, she explained a case study of a restaurant that provides fast service at very reasonable rates. So, what she implied from that is the expectations from the customer is a fast service and an okay kind of food from the restaurant so, the restaurant doesn’t have to focus on other things as it is already reaching the customers' expectations. The ultimate gist from this case study was to keep the expectations and offering into alignment which eventually leads to customer satisfaction. After that, she discussed the importance of a customer-centric approach in today’s world. She claimed that being customer-centric breeds loyalty among the customers and with that edge, if a business can be agile with new situations and differentiate itself in the market, they have a very good room for growth. The robust claim she had was no matter how much we are into the technology we are still humans, and we always want to feel the real stuff. The business should focus on the storytelling for their offering so that it resonates with the customers. The one who is good at storytelling, keeping themselves in the shoes of customers excels. Ms. Mavis then explained about the shift of the world to the internet for buying product because of the pandemic. So, as the world has been altering its form of interaction with business, it's high time to re-strategize the business models to remain competitive in the market.

He started his talk by calling the present time as a time of revolution making it the best time to enter the workforceespecially for the students specialising in HR. It is the time that employers have to rethink their priorities in regards to their organisations and if the need arises they should not restrain themselves from even changing their business model. However, before implementing the change, the organisations should think about the impact on the audience who would be affected by the change. Besides, he further enlightened the students about the 3 Ws- work, workplace and workforce.
Throughout his talk he laid the emphasis on taking care of the employees and how organisations should empower them to make their own choices and decisions.He stressed that the success of an organisation is dependent upon the capabilities of its employees. Therefore, there should be a strong focus on soft skills and showing appreciation to employees.
He also talked about how work from home is making people very exhausted and therefore it very important to empathise with them.
While concluding, he said that organisations should not follow the one size fits all approach. According to him there are no best practices because what worked for one organisation might not necessarily work for the other company as well. Therefore, organisations should work on finding the difference between the future and the present needs and bridge the gap. They will also have to accept that a lot of things that are there right now will not work in the future. So they should work on finding what works for their organisation and what does not.
The session ended with Mr Ron answering to questions that were asked by the students. He enlightened the students with his immense years of experience and vast knowledge.
