Looking through the eyes of your customer

We are here to help you create memorable experiences

Whether you would like to design or improve the experience of your customers, your candidates, your patients, your employees, your suppliers or every other human being, we are ready for the challenge!


We bring you the “outside-in” perspective by looking through the eyes of your customers (or every other stakeholder you are interested in). By listening carefully to them, we identify their needs, motives and experiences. 

Based on these insights we craft a memorable journey, innovation or insights driven strategy. Taking your organization by the hand to make sure a new way of acting is embedded.

Listening to your customers


We work in close contact with client teams and use workshop formats to drive engagement and ensure project follow-through and execution.

We promise you no fluffy, or overly intellectual reports, but clear, actionable and real insights that will help you both on the short and the long term. 




We help you map out and optimize the moments your customers* engage with your brand. Through in-dept interviews we identify how your customers experience every step in their journey.


Their end-to-end journey is not limited to your current touchpoints and is often most interesting on those moments where you are currently not in touch, but can make a difference for your customers.


Together with your team we develop new strategies to create a memorable experience for your customers.

*Or employees, candidates, patients, suppliers,...



We support your product development from scratch where co-creation with the customer is our main design principle.

By analyzing customer data and performing qualitative interviews we form a first view of what an innovation for your business could look like.


Together with your (tech) team we build a prototype to test with your customers. In the user test we collect feedback both on functionality as well as from a needs and experience point of view. Repeating this throughout the development process results in an innovation that customers love.



From our experience in both strategy consulting and customer insights, we facilitate strategy development projects and workshops. 

We support you to develop customer insights based strategies, embrace customer-first decision making, prioritize strategic iniatives and enable focused execution.

Delivering actionable improvement ideas based on consumer understanding

"I contacted Elin as we wanted to gain better understanding of the reasons why one of the companies in our portfolio, an indoor theme park, experienced a decline in visitors. She approached the project in a very pragmatic way to enable quick results. Elin and her team delivered us concrete insights and action steps for both short and long term improvements, based on true consumer insights. Communication was easy and clear troughout the project. I would be happy to work together again!"

“We consulted Elin for help in facilitating our strategy development session. She quickly understood what we were looking for and helped us prepare the session in detail. Elin suggested easy to use frameworks and made sure the set up and structure of the workshop would bring out the best results, starting from the big picture and ending with clear action steps and timelines. Elin facilitated our team awayday in an excellent manner. She managed to give us plenty of room to brainstorm while keeping discussions on time and goal-oriented. Elin also did a great job involving every team member, and afterwards summarizing the main outcomes."

Tatiana Panteli, Head of Brussels Office


Co-creation of a platform based on teachers’ needs and their continuous feedback during the development process

“By starting with identifying the needs of our users, mainly teachers, Anouk helped us craft our future platform. During the development process, she was key in facilitating frequent user tests to make sure we were still on the right track, but also helped prioritize our backlog and tested the platform herself. She is both a strategic thinker (e.g. when presenting to the board) and very hands-on in the execution, connecting with the tech team.”
