Hi, I'm Sandra. I help teams embrace innovation

I help teams innovate

Paris-based innovation consultant and design thinking facilitator

After 8 years at Google in the US and France, I now work with corporate teams to help them adopt and scale innovation practices for better business outcomes. I’m a versatile innovation specialist with transversal expertise in design thinking, co-creation and employee experience design.

MY SERVICES

HOW I CAN HELP YOU

The journey towards developing a culture of innovation and solving business problems can be quite complex and may require support outside of your organization. You may recognize some common obstacles and opportunities:

We want to become more agile and user-centric but aren't sure where to start.

We're struggling to apply innovation methods and practices on a day-to-day basis.

We need to rethink our services, employee experiences or internal processes to drive more value.

I use design thinking, co-creation, and service/experience design to help corporate teams move along their innovation journeys. When necessary, I collaborate with external partners to integrate additional skill sets and perspectives for greater impact.

DESIGN THINKING WORKSHOPS AND TRAININGS

I introduce teams to design thinking through hands-on workshops around practical cases as well as personalized trainings.

INNOVATION CAPACITY BUILDING

I co-create talent development and capacity building programs with HR teams to help diffuse innovation practices and tools across organizations.

INNOVATION PROJECTS: SERVICE & EXPERIENCE DESIGN

I accompany teams to deep dive into business challenges, validate ideas and co-create solutions around new/improved services,  employee experiences and marketing strategy.

MY EXPERTISE

WHY YOU SHOULD WORK WITH ME

Sandra by Design 1

I’ve spent nearly 10 years building transversal expertise in human-centered innovation and digital strategy. I’ve lived and breathed innovation culture in my many years at Google and can seamlessly navigate between the roles of consultant, analyst, designer, facilitator and researcher depending on project requirements and business needs. 

My collaborations with sales, marketing, HR, product engineering and operational teams in the US and Europe have equipped me with a systems-thinking approach, ease in collaborating across organizational silos and a practice that adapts to diverse industries and audiences.

I’m also known for my optimistic nature and cheery attitude (thanks to my upbringing in the US).

CASE STUDIES

My work is collaborative in nature and created “by design” for each client. Take a look at the end-to-end process behind a few key client projects (more case studies to be added in the near future).
