NEWARK, NJ / July 24, 2019 / VOICE Summit 2019 (VOICE 19), the world’s largest voice-tech event, today announced that executives from Amazon, Clinc, Samsung, Google, Microsoft, TD Ameritrade, Prudential, Mercedes-Benz, TiVo, General Motors, US Bank, Visa, Bond.AI, Aider.AI, National Association of the Blind, Novalte, Virginia State Lottery, Phone.com, Earlplay, Cognizant, SAP, Flipkart, VoiceBot.AI, the New Jersey Business and Industry Association, and other leading organizations will present at the VOICE Summit 2019 on July 25, 2019, at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT).
The day kicks off at 9:00 AM ET with, “Fintech Leaders and the Race for Voice Supremacy,” moderated by Bret Kinsella, founder of VoiceBot.ai. The session will feature fintech leaders from Prudential Financial, Visa and TD Ameritrade who will address how they are embracing the voice-first era and incorporating omni-channel strategies across product groups.
At 2:30, executives from Mercedes-Benz, Nestle, and Royal Bank of Canada will discuss organizational models and objectives that leading companies use for their voice initiatives, compare centralized versus decentralized models as well review their voice development strategies, and how they view voice assistants fitting into their broader marketing and product strategies.
The final keynote, “A journey through a deaf developer's eyes at Prudential,” will be presented by Prudential’s Thomas Chappell, who will address how voice to text technology is not only applicable to deaf people, but to everyone. Chappell, who lost his hearing as a child, will also explore why the majority of hearing-impaired people work for either federal agencies or video relay service companies.
“There's such a huge community of differently-abled individuals that aren't tapped into in the workplace,” said Chappell. “Inclusive companies are 1.7 times more likely to be innovation leaders in their market. That is almost two times more! VOICE Summit 2019 is one of the most innovative conferences and is the ideal forum for discussing and collaborating our ideas into a bigger reality.
“Simply put, if you can design for me, your solutions will work for any employee or customer.”
Registration for VOICE Summit 2019 is still open.
