TODAY’S GUEST Joe Macleod was Global Head of Design for the legendary Design agency and game studio UsTwo, and is a veteran with decades of experience across service, digital and product sectors. In recent years, he became fascinated with the problem of designing good ending experiences and is the founder of what he calls “the worlds first customer ending business.” It’s not what you think - no customers get killed in the process. Instead, Joe is focused on giving customers a positive, meaningful, and socially responsible end of relationship experience. His first book, titled Ends - is a look into the importance of thinking about offboarding - from sustainability and recycling, through data and privacy, to retiring old products and tools, and finds the roots of our collective repression of the end of cycle problem in our fear of death, and the rise of mass market capitalism. .
