August 2021: Skills Focus - You are not your customer

On 26th August 2021 we welcomed Andi Jarvis of Eximo Marketing Strategy and Gareth Dunlop of Fathom to our LIVE series to talk about what Mark Ritson once called “the first rule of marketing” – You are not your customer.

We talked about how the UX design process can ensure that you keep your customer at the centre of the decisions you make about the marketing assets you create.

We also talked about the enduring value of customer research to ensure that decisions around products and services were not made based on internal opinions and design preferences but real data about the problems your customers are having and how you can help them to solve them.
