Welcome to Building Brand You, the podcast that helps you accelerate your success by unlocking your greatest asset – you.
The problems we face today require more than one idea, they require working with other organisations and supporting people to be part of the solution.
Often what we’re not doing is asking questions to define exactly what the problem is; talk to people and ask them questions to learn more about them. If you’ve built this discipline or mindset of being curious, discovering and investigating, that leads you towards the right path.
Find the problem to solve first and then solve the problem right.

ABOUT OUR GUEST:
Hassan Mohammad has helped organisations across the Middle East, United Kingdom, USA and Asia to grow and innovate by a) transforming their customers' experience b) facilitating cross-continental partnerships and by c) building capacity for Innovation. Hassan believes that customer-centricity has the potential to transcend ‘customers’ and have a much wider impact i.e. on employees and society.
Originally from an Engineering, Entrepreneurship and Business Development background, Hassan believes that customer experience can help catalyse the following:
a) Embed empathy (and ethics) within society and business by adopting a people-centred approach
b) Develop a deeper and more contextual understanding of cultural differences and sensitivities across continents, societies and organisations. This helps to drive collaboration and engagement
c) Accelerate business innovation and people development
The most exciting aspect of customer-centricity is the potential it has to organically drive people, within an organization, to go the extra-mile with the genuine desire of bringing a smile on another person’s face.
Identifying pain points/problems, looking at them with different lenses, building on individual strengths and creativity form the basis of his approach towards Customer Experience & Innovation.
Overall, Hassan is passionate about cross-cultural collaboration, co-creation and building capabilities in Customer Experience & Innovation
