Experience Innovation: Evolving from Customer Experience to the Customer’s Experience

In 2017, I spent time with jrni to discuss the rising opportunity of true CX…not digital…not analog…just real world CX based on how everyday connected people were making decisions in their journey. I never shared the article. But, it’s time that I do. It’s more important now, I believe, than it was then. CX, customers experience, neigh, the customer’s experience is everything now…because it’s theirs. It’s an opportunity to deliver an experience that becomes an unforgettable, incredible memory.

WTF – What’s the Future of Travel and Tourism

In 2016, I was invited to speak at World Travel Market (WTM) in London. The book, X: The Experience When Business Meets Design, was brand new and perfect for the event. Why?

Introducing #IgniteMoments: Customers Experience So Much Darkness in Their Journey, Optimize Digital Customer Experiences to Deliver the Light

Today’s customer journey is built upon decades of legacy infrastructure.

Innovation in an Era of Digital Distractions

Innovation in an Era of Digital Distractions

Have you watched the “Social Dilemma” on Netflix yet? It explores the previously unknown, ignored, and dangerous human impact of social networking, with tech experts sounding the alarm on their own creations. I spent two years doing the same, most notably, with many of the players featured in the documentary.
