TRANSFORMATION TOURS

Hands-on inspiration--anywhere in the world

Witness, first-hand, some of the world's best experiences as a customer, as an employee, and as an organization's CX leader.

A Transformation Tour accelerates the ‘What-is-our-brand’s-future?’discussion by taking your team on in-person visits to other brands that have conquered the same issues you are facing. Ones that have inspiring customer and employee experiences your team can learn from. At each stop on your bespoke tour, your team will experience the customer's experience, go behind the scenes to understand the employee experience, then go into the boardroom to learn first-hand about the leader-level decisions it took to get there.

To conclude the experience, we host a discussion that starts translating learning from the tour into action for your business.

“Dozens of our members got a taste of Mike Wittenstein’s storytelling skills when they attended the Retail Experience Transformation Tour StoryMiners organized in Atlanta. It was a one-of-a-kind experience that got rave reviews. Members got a valuable and hard-to-obtain behind-the-scenes look at PIRCH, The Lenox Mall, and other leading brands. This innovative learning experience taught key principles, engaged members, and inspired them to upgrade their own experiences—in and out of retail. Can’t wait for the next one with Mike and his StoryMiners team.”

Lesley Lykins, CCXP, Sr. Director of Member Engagement at CXPA


“Mike could have just told us how to give a customer tour. Instead, he showed us by taking us on a tour of one of his client’s showrooms. We experienced first-hand the strategic attention to detail that made us feel welcome and comfortable and instilled trust. That allowed us to model this for our customers.”
