With 25 years of experience, Meena has consulted to emphasize the strategic value of customer experience across product, space and service. She truly believes that businesses can achieve greater focus by understanding the behaviors of people who might consume their offerings. Additionally, research can offer great inspiration to teams who create offerings within a business. Experiencing the journey of conducting research adds value from all directions!
