Session: Aligning Leadership Around Customer Experience Strategy

What inspires you? Identifying unmet customer needs and riding my bike

I accidentally found my way into human centered design, best practice research and journey mapping 10 years ago (long before it became a thing) due to a product I launched for Charles Schwab that was a spectacular failure.

In the years since then, I’ve grown as practitioner of omni-channel, customer-centric design methods, have worked for and with early stage startups and incubators, and led the customer experience design practice at Deloitte Digital. I was then hired into my current role to bring together the post-Dell and EMC merger offerings in a way that makes sense to customers; in the process am improving internal and external customer experience around all touchpoints: events, sales, product, support and digital experiences.
