Some of Goldmund’s clients & experience:

Goldmund is a one-off. We brought him in to lead a UX-driven project for a major client, and it very quickly became evident that Goldmund was not simply a great UX strategist but had a depth of thought, knowledge and experience that was truly remarkable. He introduced an agile and hugely collaborative approach to the project – in a practical and instantly effective way – and robustly fought for the customer in all considerations, often when taking a different approach was the easier way. His insistence on this commitment was matched by the excellence of his execution. Goldmund left a legacy that profoundly influenced future thinking and action.
