Speaking @ Chatbot Life 2019 on Building Bots for Business

Planning to be in New York City on May 22?

Chatbot Life conference will be in town and I am speaking on the strategies and tactics for building Facebook Messenger bots that make money

We will have “Idea to Launch” panel and I plan to discuss bots that automate sales, service and support for businesses ranging from local services to global enterprises

I covered a few chatbot topics on this blog not long ago, including how to make a business case for chatbots and how to develop a chatbot strategy. With this panel we expect to have a lively discussion comparing and contrasting different approaches from several colleagues
