How will consumer behaviours change as a result of COVID 19?Adam shares some insight as to why leaders should stop listening to their customers, but rather be confident and true to the brand and what makes it distinctive. We discuss how user centred design and CX is often more so about boring efficiency than better for the brand or the customer.We discuss the pratfall effect, optimism bias, brands performing well in the chaos and lots, lots more.Real People is a podcast hosted by Jason Dunstone, the founder and managing director of Square Holes.
