A letter from Ale Wiecek
I am Ale Wiecek, Founder and Chief Empathy Officer at Sqr One, and I am passionate about Human-Centred Design, Design Thinking, Customer Experience Design and just about anything that involves sharpies and post-it-notes!
I’ve been working on Digital Transformation and User Experience for more than I want to admit ( 18 years or so) for multinational organisations across 3 continents (yes, I love to travel!) Now at Sqr One, I am on a mission to bring to Australia my good set of ears and my expertise on topics such as Empathy, Customer and User Experience Mapping, Digital Transformation, and Design Thinking to help businesses and organisations who struggle to innovate with humanity in mind.
I love the colour blue, working out (I am one of those lady warriors at the gym. It comes with age I tell ya!), aprons (even though I am not that good in the kitchen), naps, a good book, music (‘Despacito’ of course), French movies, hot dogs, travel and making my bed (it just sets you up for success). I am a mum of two, a wife to one lovely husband, and spending time with my little family (manic, stressful and adorable all at the same time) is all I want.
Can’t wait to meet you!
Ale Wiecek, Founder & Chief Empathy Officer
