Nienke reads CX is a pilgrimage

Introduction to my book ‘CX is a pilgrimage’

How to spice up your leadership? That is what my book ‘CX is a pilgrimage’ is all about. In 2021, I decided to spice up my life and found the magical connection between Customer Experience, pilgrimage, and leadership.

I walked 1,000 kilometers on the Via Francigena, a pilgrim’s path in Italy and finished in Rome on May 17th, 2022, my 50th birthday. That’s why I decided to share 50 strategies in my book ‘CX is a pilgrimage – 50 strategies to spice up your leadership’.

I read aloud a chapter every week. Enjoy listening to my book. I do hope that I’ll inspire you to spice up your journey as a business leader, a CX leader, or maybe even as a leader in your personal life.
