One year of D&T! A long list of reads that almost made it

Hi there!
Hope you’re having a good (and safe) week. We’ve been in better spirits because as of today, D&T turns 1!

It’s been a long journey since when we started writing personally handwriting emails for a small group of 5-10 of our clients, to sharing this newsletter with some of the finest minds from the best companies (Visa, Cred, TCS, McAfee, BCG & Schbang to name a few)

Thank you for tagging along our journey as we keeping finding more to learn and talk about. We’ve got some great reads for you so let’s jump right in.

Note: For any articles behind the paywall, open them on an incognito/private window and you should be good to go.

We constantly assess how interactions influence our standing relative to others and we tend to feel more important when taking part in something exclusive. Add scarcity into this mix, and you have an addictive recipe to nudge people back into your ecosystem (for a limited time).

And that’s the lot! Thanks for checking out what we had to share with you this week, we shall catch up with you next Wednesday.
