In April 2016 I was invited to give a talk at TedxTorvergataU, the University I graduated from, which had the theme “New Models of Life. Resist the Usual. Be Unexpected”.

This post opens and is part of the “Experience quick review” series, which will be about the experiences I live as customer. The feedback I provide here about the Experience, while reflective of years of knowledge and expertise in the field of designing and delivering Customer Experience, is given in a quick & (hopefully at times) fun way, meant to show the Customer perspective, to inspire and to trigger further thinking. The Summary part provides a quick review using my professional criteria’s, hence reflects the consultant view more than the customer view.
