Personalizing with Data - An Interview with Lori Schwartz

The following section summarizes our interview with Lori. But if you’d like to hear the full interview, we’ve left a link to the Spotify podcast below.

Being a ‘Tech Catalyst’, what are some key points you consider while providing consulting to your clients?

While providing consulting services to her client, the most important thing to understand is the opportunities in technology. According to Lori, technology is one of the most intimidating things to understand. So it’s our responsibility to make sure everyone understands it, so they can understand its opportunities. People have a tendency to shut down when they get intimidated by concepts. So Lori recommends explaining concepts like a story. We understand stories. It’s the way we’re wired, according to Lori. 

Make it human, and make it relatable with a story.

Even with B2Bs, people think like humans, almost as if you’re interacting with a B2C. So simplify things with a story. 

What consumer trends is we seeing outbound of the pandemic that are here to stay?

Personalization is here to stay. 

We have to remember that going forward. We need to think about how to create personalized customer experience, not a traditional demographic. And how we’re going to go about this is with data and new tech. Data gives us new inputs and segments which we can now uitlize to understand our customer’s behaviours. 

The more data we get about people, the more we can understand their needs, the better we can create experiences.
