So many #CX books are idiosyncratic (with no interviews, no reputable references) and with a less than homogeneous approach. New for 2018 is my peer reviewed chapter, Benchmark academy study ties customer experience to emotional branding: A University of Phoenix Center for Leadership Studies and Educational Research assessment, within the new IGI book, Driving customer appeal through the use of emotional branding. If you are examining how customer experience (CX) ties to emotional branding and in particular an academic setting, my chapter has much in store for you.
