Riding the digital wave – taking business online

“Is your business online?” This is one of the most loaded business questions of the digital age. Once upon a time (not too long ago), it meant, do you have a website; later, it came to include social media, doing a blog - the question really just meant, do you have an online presence.

Digital marketing wild

Digital marketing wild

Digital marketing provides a platform for a voice, no matter how small the voice might be. Isn’t that beautiful? A space where one person’s opinion or experience matters as much as the crowd's. That’s a game changer.
Be brave enough to hear your consumers

Be brave enough to hear your consumers

Let’s face it: it’s no longer just a good idea or a nice gesture to listen to your consumers:  If you don’t, someone else will. You have to really listen and empathise with a person to design something that makes a difference.
My multicultural challenges and lessons

My multicultural challenges and lessons

We are all human beings despite colour or culture. We should have a fascination to learn more about people and their cultures. The only way to do justice to this is through acceptance and respect.
Cultural diversity – grab it with both hands!

Cultural diversity – grab it with both hands!

The importance of empathy in an automating world

Why can’t you just listen?

Why can’t you just listen?

We need more better listeners. It's a skill we can and must cultivate if we are going to keep customers coming back, differentiate ourselves in our market and be better at tackling challenges. Today, if you're not listening to your audience, you're falling out of touch and into danger.
Rise, women! RISE!

Rise, women! RISE!

Over the past few weeks, I have decided that the next 12 months will be my Year of Yes. This basically means that for the next 12 months I am the Yes Woman.

I know why design thinking works

I know why design thinking works

Your customers are the people who know your products and services from regular, on-the-ground experience with them; they are the people who are going to tell you what it's like to interact with your brand every day.
