The Importance of Designing Customer Experiences

The Importance of Designing Customer Experiences

SXSW is one of my favorite events of the year for many reasons. It’s an experience where serendipity becomes the new gravity and almost everyone you meet has incredible stories to share. Upon arrival in Austin, I drove straight from the airport to the Sysomos lounge to see my dear friend Amber Naslund and her team. She was kind enough to host my very first booksigning of X the evening before SXSW was set to kick-off. The place was packed! What…

Introducing a framework for experience architecture

Introducing a framework for experience architecture

Alan Quarry is one of those people that makes you smile and earns your trust and respect within minutes. He also has a pretty killer video setup. Alan invited me on his show to talk about X and I gladly accepted. The minute I plugged-in to his video feed though, I instantly wished I could teleport to his studio. #jealous. In X, I introduce framework for experience architecture and how one can become an xperience architect. We talk about what that…

The Truth About Creating Customer Experiences

The Truth About Creating Customer Experiences

  Bryan Kramer is just one of those people with whom you instantly bond. For those who don’t know him, he shot onto the social, digital, content marketing scene with fun and fervor. He’s highly regarded as a strategist, speaker and author. He’s also someone I think of as a good friend. Recently, I had the honor, and enjoyment, of shooting an episode of H2HChat (Human to Human) with Bryan and his super smart co-host Suzi McCarthy. The conversation was both…

Will You Be A Part of Change Or A Victim Of It? An Interview with @TheYoungTurks

Will You Be A Part of Change Or A Victim Of It? An Interview with @TheYoungTurks

Right before everyone left for the Christmas/Holiday break, I flew down to Los Angeles to visit the The Young Turks studio. My good friend Francis Maxwell invited me to sit down with Cenk Uygar, host and co-founder of TYT to talk about the story of X and upcoming trends affecting business and society. While we did talk about those things, we got there via a conversation I don’t usually have, which is the story of (me) and how I got to where I am today. Perhaps…

Experience as a Competitive Advantage

Experience as a Competitive Advantage

There’s this wonderful magazine, yes a print magazine, in France called INfluencia. While it’s also equally lovely online, I thoroughly enjoy the intricate design work that goes into each page. When INfluencia reached out to talk about X and the future of experience design, I jumped at the chance. If you speak French, it’s online here. Below is the translated version if you prefer English. INFluencia: Les start-up, l’avenir de l’expérience client ? When I read the pitch of the…

Tracking Our Next Digital Steps

Tracking Our Next Digital Steps

It’s been a bit of a whirlwind since the launch of X. In the last two weeks, I’ve hosted conversations about the promise of experience design in London, Düsseldorf, Oslo, Sydney and Geelong. Somewhere along the Atlantic, I was asked to answer a few questions ahead of my arrival in Geelong for the Pivot Summit by Courtney Crane of the Geelong Advertiser. Thanks to the magic (or curse) of inflight wifi, I was able to make her deadline. But it…

Experience is the Brand: Why this is the time for experience architecture

Experience is the Brand: Why this is the time for experience architecture

While I was in traveling in Europe, my friends at 800CEOREAD reached out to talk about X. I was so focused on production and printing that I’ve almost neglected letting people know that the book is finally getting released! I took the time to answer a handful of questions. But, I didn’t reply quickly. I took my time to share the depth of what X explores and how it will help you. “Here’s the thing. Experience is the brand. Meaningful…

Make Change Work for You: The Power of Observation

Make Change Work for You: The Power of Observation

I’m a pretty private person usually. From time to time though, I share stories about my past to help others take their next step. This is one such case. Scott Steinberg is a good friend and the other of several books including his most recent title, Make Change Work for You. We chatted recently about lessons learned over the years. I wanted to share our conversation with you here… Scott Steinberg: You’ve been tremendously successful in your career. Would you call yourself…

Untethered From Tradition: How I Got Here

Untethered From Tradition: How I Got Here

I didn’t set out to be an author, speaker or digital analyst/anthropologist. It just happened over the years. When I was younger, I studied economics and journalism. I actively experimented in online marketing. I was also a musician/songwriter. So, how did I get here? I spent some time with my friends over at Onboardly to answer just that. I’d like to share the transcription of our conversation with you here… The Freedom to Experiment 1. You’re a best selling author,…

The Future of Everything? It’s About People Connecting with People

The Future of Everything? It’s About People Connecting with People

These last few years have been an interesting ride. As fun as it has been, it is the next few years that will be the most telling and also transformative if all goes according to plan. As quickly as time flies, it’s important not to lose sight of the things that remind us of why we’re on this path together. I recently stumbled across a conversation with Eric Jacobson in which I shared what was driving me at the time…and…
