About Me

SustainableX Jochem van Drimmelen

Creative Customer Experience Strategist

I develop authentic ideas and solutions that result in trust, so that organizations, customers and employees experience a win-win. Trust creates connection, and connection is progress. Focused on purpose-driven service design, I bridge the gap between brand promise, sincere efforts, and actual customer experience.

My strength is an unusual combination of analysis, creativity and a strategic view. I have a holistic approach and make stakeholders feel heard, by carefully merging facts, opinions, interests and possibilities. I am driven by a talent and strong desire to create, and was shaped by life lessons in customer centricity and integrity. I do what I promise and I listen before I speak.

With that, it is my ambition to have a positive impact on a sustainable balance between people, planet and profit.

In the longer run, however, the impact is likely to be the far opposite. With so many companies struggling to survive, all resources will be needed to repair or rebuild the business. No surplus left to spend on charity or sustainability. Still, there is reason to be hopeful as well.
