Disney Inspired: Designing Experiences with the Lights Off
Louie Gravance, Former Disney Institute Professor/Service Guru
As we prepare to engage our customers at conferences, sometimes we forget to put ourselves in the shoes of our customers to understand how they will really experience your brand presence. As we’ll learn from Louie Gravance, Disney focuses on designing experiences through the eyes of the visitor to ensure engagement, excitement and that they walk away with memories that last a lifetime.
For Louie and Disney, every single experience involves all our senses that connect to tell an overall brand story.
- What do we look like?
- What do we sound like?
- What do we smell like?
- What do we feel like?
Louie tells his own stories to inspire us to Rethink how we design stories and experiences.
James C. Morris, VP, Client Service, Impact XM
As Rethink: Healthcare 2021 wraps up, James C. Morris will share closing remarks about the event and inspiring thoughts on the future of the healthcare congress industry.
