Real Business magazine and Cisco have been searching for this year’s Customer Kings.
“The one question perplexing entrepreneurs, marketers and PRs will be: what are we looking for in a winner?
The answer is pretty simple: we want to see evidence of customer engagement. A Customer King does more than sell products. Great brands make their customers feel like a part of the wider brand experience.”
The judges, Simon Nixon, founder of online price comparison site Moneysupermarket and SimonSeeks.com, Cisco’s David Critchley, Real Business’ Charles Orton-Jones and, Tricia Philips, business, careers and finance editor for The Daily Mirror have shortlisted Urban Coffee Company for the Customer Kings award.
