Master Designers utilize a science-based understanding of human behavior together with design-thinking methodology to create solutions that drive positive results for client businesses and for the people who are touched by the programs.
These Master Designers serve Experient clients by applying design principles based on the latest from the human sciences to create highly engaging experiences for people participating in sales and channel motivation programs, employee recognition programs, consumer loyalty programs, corporate meetings and events, and incentive travel programs.
Master Designers complete a challenging educational curriculum provided by The Maritz Institute that includes a class taught by leading neuroscientists and design thinking educators, mentoring colleagues and demonstrating knowledge application. A Master Designer designation signifies an individual completing the most rigorous of certifications provided by The Maritz Institute.
