Turbo-charge your offering by getting closer to your customers.

Traditional market research is broken. You can’t rely on third parties to tell you what your customers need anymore. You need to get up-close and personal yourself.

Getting out of the building and in front of customers can be terrifying. But as all the best companies know, it’s essential if you want to create something valuable and new.

This workshop provides you with everything you need to bridge the gap between you and your customers.

You’ll learn how to conduct rapid, high quality user research yourself, and how to create an ongoing conversation with your customers. Plan your research, know which methods to use in different scenarios, and learn how to turn insight into gold. 

We promise no theoretical blah-blah. Just useful, practical tools and techniques that you can apply straight away to generate better insights into your customers and their needs.
