Companies face a terrifically uncertain and complex terrain today. As 20th-century models of management prove insufficient in navigating the landscapes of today and tomorrow, a great shift in mindset is needed – embracing resilience and adaptability in face of the multitude of unfolding futures.

I do not judge people, neither things nor the past. But I carefully read between the lines and layout all the little shades and tones to a value free mosaic. My favourite word is imageneering because whatever we can dream, we can also build.

I am passionate about helping companies and organizations to navigate and develop in the new digital reality where innovation and integrated customer experience are often the key to success. My focus is on shaping strategies and designing solutions that are at the intersection between business development, customer value and opportunities in the outside world. Solutions that communicate effectively, make an impression and create commitment. I strongly believe that strategy and design is very much about finding the perfect balance between insight-driven and light-hearted approach to each unique challenge.

I’m a firm believer that human-centered design has the power to spark change: to improve and create preferable futures, for people and businesses. To do this in the connected age, I think it is critical to blend digital technologies with physical products and create holistic, integrated and seamless experiences. I am a prototyping advocate, as I believe it is the key to speed up innovation processes.

In early 2020, the world dramatically changed in a way no business could have anticipated. Most notably, retailers and the brands they represent found themselves unable to connect with their customers through a physical experience with their products or services. What will the future be like? How will brands express themselves in a world in which peoples’ behavior consistently changes? Those are the questions I am interested in exploring and finding solutions to. I strongly believe we live in the era of experience where technology can serve a greater purpose and create outstanding results.

"The times they are a-changin’", as Bob Dylan sang. Optimism is essential for innovation. How else can we welcome change over security - adventure over staying in a safe place? Facilitating this change across customer experience, business, and technology is what drives me every single day to do more - to do better.
