About cxpartners

"Delivering innovation often feels like an impossible jumble of competing priorities. We believe the secret to untangling it is to put people first. That's what we do."

Giles Colborne

Co-founder of cxpartners

See the challenge through your customers' eyes

"Every business makes statements saying 'we put the customer front of mind when making decisions', but that can get lost. cxpartners showed that listening to the user has a positive outcome. Put the customer first and the rest will follow"

Learn a new lean and collaborative process

"It worked really well, I think, because we all went on the same journey of discovery, working really closely together, spending time together and being really open. It wasn’t the relationship of client and consultant or providers. It was dynamic. It was FUN. You can’t always say that."

Pragmatic support for complex projects

"When I had concerns we just sat down and talked them through. When we looked, half of them weren't things we needed to worry about and we dealt with the rest. It was relaxed, so it wasn't a problem"

Our story

cxpartners' co-founders, Richard and Giles, sharing a laugh while sitting on a sofa in the cxpartners office.

When cxpartners was born in 2004 it was just Richard and Giles working in an attic with a conviction that design, technology, and business should be centered around people and a strong desire to help.

Today cxpartners works on critical business challenges all over the world. Our empathetic, people-centered design approach has turned a bank from an enemy to a friend, created a life-saving Instant Messaging service, and it's bringing everyday space travel a step closer to reality.
