In my talks I share how to do that by combining research, trends, best practice, a bit of myth-busting and quite a bit of storytelling.

- The review and design of a great customer experience.
- How they attract, engage, serve and keep their customers as well as how they build the level of advocacy their customers have for their business; and

The customer experience space is starting to exhibit the same characteristics that prog rock did in the 1970s.....overly technical, too elaborate, not focused on its audience and often in danger of disappearing up it’s own a***.
Punk exploded out of the back of prog rock with it’s democratic, DIY, back to basics approach that inspired both a cultural and musical movement and change in mindset. It dared to be different and was OK with the fact that not everyone liked it.
Is it time to consider what a punk rock version of CX would look and feel like?
In a very arresting and colourful way, Punk CX tackles some of these questions and shares some key insights and practical takeaways that will allow you harness your inner punk and transform your own customer experience.Find out more
It's no longer sufficient to talk about customer experience in isolation. To succeed, we need to think about experience holistically, especially if we are to deliver the outcomes and reach the heights we aspire to.
Punk XL, where XL stands for eXperience Leadership, seeks to explore what it means and takes to deliver a great experience at different levels (individual, team, organisation, customer and beyond).
Like its predecessor Punk CX, it will be composed of a series of short and punchy "tracks" organised loosely around a series of concentric rings or dimensions that will explore what eXperience Leadership means at that particular level.
To add richness, perspective and depth, it features contributions from a number of different experience "artists" from around the world.
PUNK XL features contributions from: Ari Weinzweig, Serena Riley, Lara Khouri, Richard Hammond, Amy Scott, Sandra Thompson, Paul Greenberg, Joyce Kim, Karen Jaw-Madson, Martin Lucas, Sandra De Zoysa and Clare Muscutt.
Finally, given its collaborative nature and acknowledging what we have gone through in the last couple of years and what many are still going through, all of the book's proceeds will be donated to charity.Find out more
