I’m very proud to have founded Empathyce back in early 2012. 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.
But we can 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 others I’ve worked with before. Like me, they are not career consultants jumping on a Customer Experience bandwagon that’s laden down with inconsequential platitudes. What drives us is sharing how Customer Experience thinking can create lasting commercial success and a better place to work.
Empathyce is based in Cheltenham, UK. And the name..?
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.

And when I’m not at work or spending time with the family I’ll be swimming somewhere, especially 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!
