Amazing customer journeys are rare now – but powerful
Elite Business
February 01, 2024
I’m not a great shopper, but with Christmas and family birthdays around the world, I found myself leaping onto websites and into shops and buying or attempting to buy. The reality was that there was little buying and less pleasure to be had. Instead, I was drowned in truly idiotic and so very easily avoidable customer journey errors, and those mentioned in this article are just a few.

Who really holds the power cards in your company?
Elite Business
September 01, 2023

A truly authentic look into the inside world of entrepreneurship.
