Today’s consumers have unlimited choices in which brands they choose and how they interact with those brands, bringing the competition for businesses to an all time high. The major challenge business leaders are facing is the cost and complexity of finding customers, reaching them, and keeping them long-term. This year, at SIGNAL, Twilio will explore the tangible ways that businesses can move away from transactional customer messages to building deep customer relationships – while decreasing customer acquisition costs and increasing customer lifetime value.

Twilio Chief Operating Officer Khozema Shipchandler will be joined by special guests George and Amal Clooney to discuss the importance of relationships and engaging with their communities and fans. The pair will also discuss their work with the Clooney Foundation for Justice, which advocates for the rights of imprisoned journalists, the LGBTQ+ community, women, marginalized communities, and human rights defenders.

Twilio Chief Diversity Officer Lybra Clemons will sit down with tennis champion, business entrepreneur, and philanthropist Venus Williams to unpack what it means to win in today’s world, how to persevere through times of uncertainty, and why we have a responsibility to “change the game” and advocate for equitable policies that benefit all marginalized communities.
