Stories of the week shaping the future of consumer experiences (CX).
Spark Network -  Have a great Thanksgiving weekend? I know we did. Ate too much food, saw family and friends from near and far... We are all pretty lucky.

In addition, Charlie discovered snow for the first time... Not a huge fan but, its growing on him. Skiing by next year? We hope so.

As always, reach out with questions / comments on the content below. Would love to catch up over a coffee or HH.

Have a great week!
