Empathyce – creating fans of your business

Empathyce is a customer experience consultancy and training company.

What we do is dictated by how you want things to be different. But, the nature of the work is around developing customer experience programmes; helping to understand what things are like for your customers today, what they should be like based on your strategy and then setting out the path to become more customer-centric.

The only reason I feel justified in claiming to be able to help is because I’ve real empathy for what it’s like to run a customer experience agenda.

I’ve been there, and so too has anyone I bring in to support me. We know it’s not easy. It can sometimes feel like we’re the only ones who ‘get it’. We know there are political agendas to navigate, investors to keep happy and cross-functional silos to work across.

We draw on our experience to share structured thinking that helps build the momentum, set the priorities and organise the activity.

Where the scale or specific skill-set requirements call for it, I will bring in highly talented, highly experienced individuals. Their details are below. Like me, they are not career consultants jumping on a Customer Experience bandwagon that’s laden down with inconsequential platitudes. What drives us is the knowledge of how Customer Experience thinking can create lasting commercial success and a better place to work.

Empathyce is based in Cheltenham, UK. And the name..?

Well, listen to any conversation about making things better for customers and there will be reference to probably the most important element of all: empathy. It’s about understanding and sharing what others feel and think. It is at the root of everything we believe about improving customer experiences and so is encapsulated in the name.  Empathy + CE (customer experience) = Empathyce; for positive and lasting results.

About Jerry Angrave

I’d rather this was about you than me, but here goes.

I founded Empathyce in 2012, leaving a corporate role to focus on something I’d found a real passion for – customer experience.

I work with Boards, leadership teams and managers to help create experiences that their customers want to repeat, share and pay more for. I’m a Certified Customer Experience Professional (CCXP) and am very proud to be one of just a handful of CCXPs globally who are also approved by the CXPA to train others for the qualification.

I’ve been lucky to work with many forward-thinking people around the world in sectors that include aviation and travel, SaaS companies, utilities, pharmaceuticals and industrial manufacturers. Before setting up Empathyce I had senior CX roles working across the brands of Lloyds Banking Group and lived in New Zealand for five years.

For any work we do, I will always be your main contact throughout. To see who I’ve worked with and their testimonials, click here.

In the past I’ve been a director of an offshore banking subsidiary in Guernsey and chairman of Governors at a school in Cheltenham for children with severe special needs.

And when I’m not at work or spending time with the family I’ll probably be swimming somewhere, especially the sea, a lake or lido.  In September 2016, I swam the English Channel as part of a relay team of four.  Wasn’t easy, but we made it!

Enough about me, how about you?  If you’ve anything you’d like to discuss or have questions on do let me know.  I’m always happy to share thoughts over the phone or a coffee so please feel free to get in touch.
