Marc Stickdorn  ·  @mrstickdorn

We first discovered Marc Stickdorn speaking about service-design thinking in South America and came to one conclusion: we needed him to do a workshop at UI19. His innovative approach to mapping customers’ journey through an experience—including their emotion and satisfaction along the way—is practical, low risk, and high value.

His teaching is so sought-after that he co-authored and edited the book, This is Service-Design Thinking, which is packed with case studies of organizations who’ve moved toward empathy-driven design.

Marc is a guest lecturer at business and design schools, and he works with organizations to sustainably integrate service design in their daily processes. He co-founded smaply, software to visualize customer journeys and service ecosystems, and also myServiceFellow, a tool to gain genuine customer insights through mobile ethnography.
