Olga Potaptseva, Founding Director of the European Customer Consultancy, joins Clare Muscutt on the Inspiring Women in CX podcast to talk about how her university studies sparked her interest in customer research, how she came to (somewhat serendipitously!) lead a loyalty development programme at GfK, aligning CX with the business strategy, failing forwards (in life and in CX!), what it means to be a ‘customer-enabled’ organisation and her advice to women in CX about creating the life that you want.

Clare Muscutt talks with Chelsea Costelloe about Caribbean CX and dispelling customer journey mapping myths

Chelsea Costelloe, the Chief Excitement Officer at EXCO, joins Clare Muscutt on the Inspiring Women in CX podcast to talk about co-founding the Caribbean’s first all-female-led CX consulting agency, the positive shift in the region as more CX titles are appearing, facing scepticism as a young, female director, gender equality in the Caribbean, experiencing sexist comments in the workplace and how, if ignored, these ‘blurred’ lines can become much more insidious and utilising journey mapping as a tool, as opposed to a goal in itself, to spur action, inspire your teams and avoid the dreaded journey mapping ‘burnout’.

 

Listen in as Chelsea talks about…

🤝 Co-founding the Caribbean’s first all-female-led CX consulting agency, EXCO

🙋‍♀️ Being a ‘Chief Excitement Officer’ (and what the role entails)

📚 The state of CX in the Caribbean and her personal mission to drive CX awareness and education in the region

🗯️ Gender equality, gender-based violence and experiencing sexist comments in the workplace

Clare Muscutt talks with Stine Ringvig Marsal about squiggly careers and fixing a broken CX industry

Stine Ringvig Marsal, the Founder & CEO of Experience Management Consult, joins Clare Muscutt on the Inspiring Women in CX podcast to talk about ‘tripping’ into CX (didn’t we all!), her passion for Service Design, how to ‘do’ CX and make it work *without* having an astronomical budget, combatting the ‘fluffy bullsh*t’ to reclaim credibility as an industry and viewing CX as a ‘support function’ as opposed to a religion or culture.

 

Bye-bye CX blabber!

 

Key talking points include…

🧰 How Stine applies her Sociologist’s toolbox to CX

🎢 Her journey to becoming Tivoli Garden’s first-ever Customer Experience Manager

🤝 The importance of ‘fusing’ employee and customer experience in a regulated industry 

💡 How her own life experiences enabled her to ‘step out’ of the mainstream

Episode #202, Entrepreneur Lara Felix-Omonubi talks about becoming an independent black woman, side hustling, patriarchy and the resilience handed down through generations of Nigerian women.

According to Huffington Post, it’s a sad reality that women have been harder hit by the coronavirus pandemic, whether that’s dealing with higher unemployment and job insecurity as a result or bearing the majority of the burden for childcare, homeschooling and other unpaid care work at home.

However, female entrepreneurs and women determined to be their own bosses and change the world around them with their businesses are a silver lining to emerge from the clouds of Covid-19.

That’s one of the reasons I was thrilled to have serial entrepreneur Lara Felix-Omonubi on the show, inspiring us with her latest new venture, starting a new product-led business during a pandemic.

I just loved the way she describes the side hustle… as a way for us to explore creative passions we might not otherwise had chance to, had we not experienced COVID-19.
