Q&A with PXUX 2016 Keynote Speaker Chris Laping, Former CIO of Red Robin Gourmet Burgers

ppl before things

Chris Laping will be headlining PXUX (August 24 – 25, Boston) this year, as he speaks to the topic of “Inspiring Crazy Loyalty.” From 2011 to 2015, Chris Laping led business transformation at Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, and was principally accountable for enabling and driving all change and innovation for the brand. His success was highlighted by a collaborative effort with marketing and operations to design and implement a loyalty program.

The Red Robin team acquired 5 million members in the Red Robin loyalty program, a huge success that contributed to the company’s highly-publicized turnaround of an $8 stock price to $89. In this interactive session full of storytelling, Chris will present concepts from his newly released book, People Before Things:  Change Isn’t An End-User Problem—highlighting what it takes to effectively enable and activate people for change and loyalty program success.

We sat down with Chris to learn a bit more about what he’ll be sharing with Paytronix users at the conference this year, and to capture a few highlights of what attendees will learn. […]
