Bob Azman, Founder and CXO
We value the opportunities this work awards—opportunities for our clients to have great CX, opportunities for customers everywhere to be engaged with great experiences, and opportunities for our firm to do great work.
We hold ourselves and the work we do to high standards and in accordance with the following principles:
A strong bias for action. We are eager to make moves and want our clients to be, too. With CX, it can be challenging to know where to start. We boil down ideas into actions our clients and team can take for the greatest effect. And we make sure every engagement delineates how to make it all happen, listing next steps, key milestones, and roles and responsibilities.
Forging new paths. Where others rely on traditional thinking and the path of least resistance, we rely on a continuously fresh perspective. We approach each CX challenge as a unique opportunity, not a run-of-the-mill exercise. We’re not afraid to think outside of the box—doing so fuels our innovative spirit and ensures we are always doing what’s right by our clients and their customers.
Simplicity. Customer experience can be complex; but it doesn’t have to be daunting. Our years of experience across industries means that we’ve seen a lot. We share key learnings and best practices to help our clients focus only on the things that will yield great results.
An unrelenting work ethic. We love what we do and are grateful for the opportunity to do it. We work hard because it’s what our clients deserve and it’s what advances the field of customer experience. In every engagement, we are right alongside our clients with our hands on as much of work as they’d like us to have.
