At Hello Socrates we believe that a successful client relationship requires meaningful dialogue and effective questioning techniques (i.e. discovery) in order to deliver actionable results. Just like Socrates, in order to generate ideas and solve problems, we pay extra attention during the discovery phase so that our advice takes into account our clients’ specific circumstances. This way we ensure that the entire client experience is relevant and, more importantly, unique.
