Daphne Tideman

Growth Advisor at Growth Waves and consultant

"Your failed experiment is your biggest opportunity"

We’ve all heard it “we tried that, it doesn’t work.”. When we have a failed experiment, we are quick to move on. Sure, we try to create a growth mindset and talk about learnings, but the truth is we aren’t getting the most out of those experiments.

Growth experiments are like lemons. Just because not much comes out on the first squeeze, it doesn’t mean it’s a “dud lemon”.

Daphne started out as the 1st employee for RockBoost, a growth hacking agency. After consulting various startups and corporations for over five years (and helping RockBoost grow to 25 employees), she wrote a book about Growing Happy Clients.

Then she moved to the brand side, where she helped Braincare startup Heights, scaling it from £28K to £343K MMR in 18 months. Now Daphne helps the best eco-friendly & wellness D2C startups grow faster.

"Optimizing for Customer Lifetime Value"

In a world of economic uncertainty, when companies are pushing for sustainable growth, learn how we recalibrated our team’s mission towards experimentation for long term user growth. Some of the key themes that I will talk about in my session are:

  • How can a subscription-based business define and optimize Customer Lifetime Value (CLV)?
  • What is the significance of Guardrails in experimentation and how can they be chosen effectively?
  • What are some valuable insights that we have gained through our experiences?
  • What are Confounding Variables and how can they be accounted for in AB testing?
  • What are some common pitfalls and recommended best practices?

Bart Schutz

Chief Evidence Officer

"Evidence & Ethics Everything; Boosting growth and impact by better understanding the mechanisms of statistics and positive behavioral change."

Following in the footsteps of fast-growing big tech, more and more organizations are fully embracing digital experimentation as a means to achieve disruptive growth. Rapid A/B testing drives fast, iterative and stat-sig business decisions. But as Bart will show us, many of these decisions are wrong and some are even unethical. 

Your experimenting organization is way more ineffective or even harming people than you probably think. Bart reveals the tip of the iceberg about how this happens and what to do about it. Because -when done right- experimenting faster, cheaper and better is certainly the way to achieve a disruptive positive impact on people, planet & profit.

Bart Schutz is a renowned consumer psychologist, growth specialist and keynote speaker on changing human behaviour and digital experimentation. For over 20 years he has been helping organizations grow their positive impact on people, planet & profit by building purpose & evidence-driven company cultures.

Bart founded 1) CRO agencies &, 2) (Wildlife Safaris in Europe), and 3) The ‘Social & Economic Psychology’ section within the Dutch Institute for Psychologists and 4) The Dutch ‘Climate & Behavioral Change expert group’. Moreover, he is a guest lecturer at various universities and business schools and a member of the advisory committees for the Dutch Consumer Markets Authority and the Financial Markets Authority.
