Back of the Napkin Lunch – Products, Experiences, Services vs Customers

With Ryan Williams, Director, Australian Centre for Business GrowthUniversity of South Australia.

Thirty-five founders and entrepreneurs joined in for lunch, and it was very clear that guests got a lot out of the event, plus made a few new friends too.

“Fabulous Switch Start Scale Back of the Napkin lunch yesterday thanks to the fantastic work of Wendy Perry & Scott Perry 🤩 Really insightful discussion about the customer journey with Ryan Williams from the Australian Centre for Business Growth 🤔 Always great to meet new people and some of my favourite familiar faces, fancy bumping into you Donna Adams! 😁”

“Best 2 hrs spent lately. Thank you for the invite.”

“Great lunch time learning and networking opportunity created by Wendy Perry and Scott Perry Switch Start Scale. Bonus lunching with Toni Everard! Thanks Ryan Williams for the robust discussion on understanding your customer and what support they want. Businesses often get distracted on creating the product / service rather than understanding who they are serving and what they want. Do you really understand your future clients?”

“A great ‘Back of the Napkin’ lunch yesterday with Ryan Williams speaking about understanding your customers’ needs and it was so great to hear Tracey Tito‘s news! Thanks to Wendy Perry and Scott Perry for organising.”

“Thank you so much for a wonderful session today!  Looking forward to participating in more events.”
