MEET MMR LIVE

We’re out to improve every experience.

MMR LIVE is a consultancy-styled group of diverse-minded researchers, storytelling strategists, data analysts and experiential marketers. Purposeful yet playful - if such a twist is possible - we are led by a fierce, female founder. Her vision for the future is what LIVE is always building towards.

LIVE understands that change is constant, and we embrace it. We emerged from MMR Research Associates in 2017 initially to join experiential marketing and research that would humanize the process and deliver operationalized results. As we have worked in our own iterative process, we’ve changed our focus, evolving into the experience design arm that partners with our researcher colleagues. Together, we inspire confidence.

When we’re not awash in The LIVE 8 or geeking out on prototypes with clients, we’re fans of college sports, F1, Broadway, national parks, Major League anything, travel (with or without the kids), the genius of living your Why.

Experience
enhances
everything.

We believe that the experience is no longer a nice-to-have. And experience design is a fundamental, foundational practice for businesses who what to grow – smarter. So we design for change, guided by research and strategy wrapped in an experiential mindset. It’s our unwavering certainty that the integration of emotion, feedback and operations creates business outcomes that are transformative. 


All our work connects back to our overarching, unshakeable belief that everything communicates, and that companies who pay attention to getting the little things right will win share of heart, every time. 


That’s why we lead with The LIVE 8.
