Lou Carbone is a renowned expert in understanding and leveraging the unconscious clues and signals from customers and employees when designing new experiences. By understanding the unvocalized needs of stakeholders (i.e., citizens, veterans, seniors, employees etc.) you can create government experiences that connect with your customers and employees, making them feel significant and heard. Lou shares his concepts, built on decades of research and experience working with government agencies and private sector industries.
