X: The Experience When Business Meets Design – GetAbstract Summary

Digital customer experience has never been more important. The pandemic accelerated e-commerce, AI and automation, and digital transformation by 10 years. What most businesses still aren’t prepared for however, is how to think beyond digital tools and platforms to design intuitive digital experiences that inspire human engagement in every touch point across the CX journey. That’s what X: The Experience When Business Meets Design set out to do. It was designed to help “imagineers” image a unified customer journey that…

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

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. A memory…

WTF – What’s the Future of Travel and Tourism

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? Travel and tourism are experiential and as such, they are the epitome of experience businesses. The challenge however is what modern experiences do customers seek in an era of digital Darwinism? My goal at WTM was to help delegates see the present differently to then see the future…

Somewhere Between Rome and Paris— A Story About Finding Balance Through LifeScaling

This picture was taken somewhere between Rome and Paris. I was lucky to make this flight. A story from April, 2018. Behind the scenes of developing LifeSCALE: How to Live a More Creative, Productive, and Happy Life.  The car was to pick me up in Rome at 4:30 a.m. for a 6:40 flight to Paris. There, I would eventually connect to San Francisco. I wasn’t looking forward to it, but I knew I could sleep over the Atlantic. I was in…

Multi-tasking is not a superpower, it’s a weakness – without mastery, digital distractions are causing more harm than good

Multi-tasking is not a superpower, it’s a weakness – without mastery, digital distractions are causing more harm than good

It’s 2021, the second year in a row that SXSW is not being held live in Austin. During the last, live SXSW, I launched my latest, and first personal book on individual empowerment to overcome our social dilemma. Algorithms have certainly earned their wages lately as it’s time for the virtual edition of SXSW 2021 and I’m flooded, thankfully, with memories of 2019. During the craziness of the Lifescale launch at SXSW 2019 in Austin Texas, I met the international…

Speaking To and Through People You Hope to Inspire: Analog-to-Digital Street Flyers That Hit Different

This is the week of SXSW 2021. Even though it’s a virtual event this year, it is still a special community bound by the spirit of entrepreneurship, creativity, ideation, friendship, and tacos (+ BBQ, queso, pedicabs, and late nights!) Since this is a very special week, I wanted to share a story with you that I don’t think I’ve ever talked about. Every year, going back to, 2007 I think, JESS3 and I would legally (on plastic coverings) post creative…

A Virtual Ode to SXSW 2021 and Celebrating Its 2022 Comeback

This time each year, I, and tens of thousands of others, would make the journey to Austin for the annual SXSW festival. On Thursday, I would organize the “Twas the Night Before” (formally “The Calm Before the Storm” party. On Friday morning, Stephanie Agresta and I (aka The Techset) would officially open the Techset lounge, which would stay open until the following Tuesday. On Friday, the official SXSW/Techset kickoff party would start the night. On Sunday, Daylight Savings would kick…
