A group of passionate strategic and positive innovation catalysts

We create conditions in which innovation can flourish

We help you create new and meaningful human experiences

Who we are?

We are a group of explorers and we embark with our clients on a rich and unforgettable adventure to create together a real and lasting impact on your clients and yourselves (your organization, people and professional practices). We bring real value to people’s lives by inventing new ways of imagining, designing and co-creating a better future for this and upcoming generations.
For us, the two major and (not so) secret ingredients for a successful project are:

Engaging the client teams in the adventure

They are the main actors of the story, so they must be heroes! For this, we design emotionally engaging and highly participatory experiences that leave no one indifferent.

Developing the customer-madness

We consistently put the end-customer in the center of our attention, from the start to the end of our projects, again and again, to identify new areas of opportunity that are meaningful to them and by consequence will deliver value for our clients, their employees and their customers (and ultimately also their shareholders)!

Our Approach

Our approach is based on 3 principles that allow us to create new human experiences and help us building a better world for tomorrow. We have designed this approach through practice and experience because we are reflective practitioners. It can be synthesized in 3 words: SENSE, DREAM, ACT. Starting from a deep and holistic understanding of a given organizational or business environment and the behaviors of relevant stakeholders including clients in this context, we dream up new and better human experiences which we then put into action with the relevant teams to make them come to live.

The values of our team

At YouMeO, we commit ourselves to act on the basis of 4 shared values.

WE ARE OURSELVES & AFFIRM OUR CONVICTIONS

…with humility among us and with our customers

WE GIVE TRUST TO EVERYONE

…to make collective action more effective

WE DARE TO EXPLORE THE NEW AND UNKNOWN

…to reinvent ourselves and our clients constantly

Testimonials

“Innovative products and services, as well as new business models which focus on our customers and their expectations are key factors of our future success. YouMeO sustainably supported us with the development, preparation and implementation of new solutions, with an open approach, a high level of professionalism and hands-on methods. YouMeO helped us to finish off our tasks.”


Mr Martin Fischer

Strategy and Business Development, OBB Austrian Railways

“YouMeO helped us to design, organize and facilitate in a record time a collaborative approach of co-constructing our strategic plan. Brought together through “hackathons”, 200 employees were put into the shoes of start-uppers in order to imagine and prototype new projects designed to feed our strategic plan. Beyond the undeniable interest of these projects, YouMeO has strengthened the confidence of the Management Committee in the creative abilities of its employees.”

Arnaud de la Morinerie

Strategic direction DRS, la Caisse des Dépots

“YouMeO has opened us up to developing business practices of young start-ups; this has inspired us to rethink our products and services to our customers. In short, a great collective success: the freshness of YouMeO seduced my team, all the more “liberated” as the methods we used broke the mold!”
