"I work with founders and CEOs to actively explore customer problems that require a new or better solution, assess the need, surface priorities, understand impact and the resulting value of the solution, and learn how and why a customer will buy. I use this to create marketing and sales programs that work.  Along the way, I capture first customers."

"Complicated industries like healthcare, financial services and energy  performance need innovative thinking informed by collaboration with customers;  problem solvers who can rethink and reinvent are rare but these skills are  needed in all industries. At the same time, some universities are becoming  centers for excellence and economic development agencies struggle to build  cultures that encourage entrepreneurship and growth. Locally and globally,  new skills are required; partnerships between companies and their customers,  and governments and institutions are critical. I work with all of them to bring  customer engagement skills to bear wherever they are needed."
