Iimagine Strategy

About Us

 
 
 

iimagine Strategy Consulting is a specialist business and customer strategy, customer experience design, and service design agency, committed to advising and supporting organisations across the services, tourism, hospitality, and accommodation sectors in designing, developing and delivering competitive, sustainable and value adding ‘customer centric’ services, experiences and business model strategies

Working with senior executive teams and business owners, or across entire organisations, our focus is to help you develop an effective and high preforming culture of customer focused value creation, nimble mindset, and innovative thought.

iimagine Strategy Consulting uses the latest methodologies, techniques and applied practices from the disciplines of Business Model Innovation, Service Design, Customer Experience Design and Management, Design Thinking, Innovation Leadership, and Corporate Strategy in advising, mentoring, and educating on ‘re-imagining’ what is possible in your business or organisation.

We work with people and organisations, large and small across a broad range of industry sectors, to drive performance and success through the formulation of ‘end to end’ project plans and initiatives designed to deliver on their specific goals and objectives. Iimagine provides a variety of advisory, support and skill development activities such as workshops, clinics and one on one and team mentoring/coaching, as well as combination of consultation and advisory solutions. Our specialist solution areas are;

  • Customer Experience – Journey Mapping, Blueprinting, Customer-Centric Leadership
  • Business Model Strategy – Design, Generation, Renewal, Turn-around and Innovation
  • Service Design and Design Thinking – Insights, Ideation, Prototyping and Iteration
  • Leading Creative and Innovative Cultures – Driving Continuous Innovation and Creativity
  • Brand and Marketing Strategy – Customer-Centric Enterprise Wide Strategy to Execution
  • Value Proposition Design – Canvas, Design, Test, Evolve
  • Tourism and Hospitality Marketing, Industry Development and Support

Our philosophy is deeply grounded in the belief that the long term success and sustainability of any organisation is achieved by the recognition and adoption of human centric thinking and innovation design. Our objective is to support businesses in the creation of impactful strategies, experiences, value propositions and business models that provide ‘A Clear and Definable Difference’ in attracting and converting more customers, keeping more customers through value and experience led loyalty, and making more from your customers through increased spend and active reviews and referrals.

In a world where infinite information is at our finger tips 24/7, where we would rather rely on quality reviews by people we have never met over aspersions of well known, high profile brands, and our ability to compare and contrast competitors product and service offerings in simple formats from our couch. Everything has changed, and it’s not going back. Potential customers can now comfortably judge the expected quality and value of an experience through the experiences of others rather than having to trust brands as the traditional proxy of experience quality. This is a very different world, with very different rules where the customer holds the power of informed choice. Tailored Customer Experiences that really deliver are the new black!
