About Annette

Employee & Customer Experience Consultant | Journey Mapping | CXPA Board Member | Author | Speaker

Annette has been recognized as a customer experience thought leader who is passionate about helping to build people-focused organizations. People-focused organizations care about people first, over profits; they also know that if they focus on the the employee experience "more first," a great customer experience will follow. Customers will feel as if they are appreciated and valued - and so the business grows.

She owns a boutique customer experience consulting firm that specializes in laying the groundwork required to establish a CX strategy that will drive your culture transformation efforts. I believe that (1) customer understanding along the customer experience journey is key to developing a strategy that allows both customers and businesses to achieve their desired outcomes, and (2) the employee experience - and your culture - cannot be an afterthought.

About Abraham

CX Success Summit Producer - Life Adventurer

I was living the life. Had the successful business by the beach. My customers were corporate 500, famous actors, big studios, award winning designers, & everything in-between. Had the cars, house by the beach & all the "stuff." So what did I do? At age 45, packed it up & moved across the world to a remote village in the Golan Heights with 90 families and no local language skills! What was I thinking?  Well, I’ll tell you what I was thinking... I will succeed! Why? Because that is my only option. I mean, really? Who would hire a 57 year old immigrant with a very heavy accent? No one. So I have but only one choice! Succeed!  I’ve accomplished much from my little remote mountain village. Have 50K+ members in my LinkedIn group, online Customer Service & Experience network with 200K+ distribution, clients worldwide, interviewed world class experts on my podcast and summit, consulting & coaching people all over the world.
