Are you sure you don't work for an investment bank?

For full business-buzzword bingo points, you need the word 'customer'.
But I'll settle for any of the following if you take a handful of hyphens and commit linguistic miscegation with these unpleasant adjectives:
  • Interactive;
  • Proactive;
  • Focused;
  • Value-added;
  • Enriching;
  • Maximising;
  • Maximal;
  • Optimal;
  • Leadership;
  • Marketplace;
  • Redefining;
  • Paradigming*;
  • Global.
