Top 5 takeaways from Avaus Expert Talks Stockholm 2022

The goal for most organisations today is to become data-driven, but why is it necessary to become data-driven at scale? Emma Storbacka, the CEO of Avaus explained: “Your customers are forcing you. They expect organisations to be relevant, omnichannel, automated, and personalised.”


The main point of Avaus Expert Talks 2022 was how to lead personalisation initiatives by numbers across marketing, sales, and services. Emma highlighted that in order to scale, a stable balance between results orientation, customer centricity, and operational efficiency is needed.


The agenda was full to the brim of industry experts and thought leaders who shared both inspirational and hands-on recommendations on how to tackle this challenge – and below you can find 5 of the most appreciated highlights:

Telia’s transformation from a traditional Telco to a data-driven digital company has delivered excellent results, according to Lena, Head of CVM and Analytics at Telia. She outlined some of the data and technology processes required for Telia to personalise and improve customer meetings and experiences across multiple channels.


Telia uses MarTech to overarch all channels and collect data from all different channels and internal systems through the Customer Data Platform (CDP), where all external and internal data is collected, analysed through the audience and message mapping, and finally, activated – allowing Telia to make the best communication decisions possible – Lena explains.


The key learning shared by Lena were:

  • “Divide the elephant into pieces” and build for scale
  • Make many mistakes. There is no playbook you need to try and learn
  • Quickly create a success story to boost motivation in the team
  • Pick your star team based on competence and attitude, not roles on paper
