What People Are Saying

"As a venture-backed direct-to-consumer company, what we learn through customer experience directly evolves who we are growing into for current and new customers. As we mature to more retail presence in an unprecedented time of disruption and opportunity, every team member must be empowered with the vulnerability to iterate and actively listen for how to be present. Design thinking and facilitation taught by Voltage Control punctuates that kind of learning perfectly."
