In today’s highly competitive marketplace, and with disruption hitting every industry, delivering customer experience excellence is one of the surest ways to drive differentiation and growth. Creating new value and gaining brand loyalty is achieved not by focusing on specific product features or design, but by re-imagining the broader experience of how customers use your products and services. Russell regularly shares his thoughts on this thinking, digital disruption, what the future holds and how businesses can embrace change and fresh thinking to reinvent themselves and deliver customer experience excellence.

What people are saying about D&Co and Russell’s work.

As part of introducing the new Innovation Refinery at Z, Russ and the team at D&Co designed and facilitated the first design sprint. This included an introduction to primary design thinking methods as we co-created a vision for the Future of Loyalty. We then partnered with D&Co to go out into the field with customers to validate the desirability of key concepts where they shared evaluative research methods resulting in concepts being green lit to exit the innovation process into commercialisation in the coming months. D&Co’s fresh thinking, collaborative and flexible nature combined with their creativity and storytelling has resulted in them being engaged across multiple areas of the business.

D&Co have been a breath of fresh air to work with bringing customer-centric thinking, creativity and pace to everything they touch. We recently faced a serious business challenge across our global bakery customer base due to the continued increases in global butter prices. Russ and his team responded to the challenge with urgency, created solutions, and delivered them across Asia and Middle East within 6 weeks of our initial conversation. Working with Russ across a number of Anchor Food Professionals projects has always been collaborative, transparent and refreshing, and I would recommend D&Co to anyone who is looking for this dynamic, fresh approach to delivering great work.

Susan Cassidy GM Global Marketing Brand & Communication Anchor Food Professionals

D&Co has been a wonderful partner to work with. Their research, insight and unique approach to the development of a consistent and cohesive customer experience has proved invaluable to increasing equity and engagement for some of our leading global consumer brands.

Russell also works across Fonterra on multiple projects from global customer experience initiatives, human-centred design programmes, to brand development and digital consultancy.
