I’m Heidi Culbertson
Voice-First Designer | Consultant | Speaker | Founder @askmarvee
Passionate about VoiceFirst lifestyles for older adults, family and caregivers
I’ve spent a career immersed in emerging technology, am a Voice-First evangelist, national speaker, and the founder of the voice design company, Marvee. My mission is to bring purpose-built, meaningful and fun voice experiences to the older adult population, the loved ones who surround them, and the communities that engage with them.
My company, Marvee, creates interactive voice experiences using the voice-first platforms of Alexa and Google. I also consult to help strategists, creators, designers and developers better understand the very large and diverse group that make up the 55 million over the age of fifty-five… the impact of voice technology, the many user scenarios, nuanced sample scripts, multi-turn conversation design elements, audience segments and testing best practices, and the widely diverse range of life, health and aging experiences.
What is Voice-First?
Just as mobile became the primary way we interact with technology, we are now entering the beginning of a “voice-first” world. The evolution of Voice-First solutions, where the primary interface to technology is spoken, will have tremendous impact and is an ideal communication medium for older adults, families and care providers.
The Voice-First Journey
Whether advising on strategy, designing the VUI process and dialogue flow, or managing design and development to production – its always about meeting people where they are and crafting voice experiences that make life better.
