Speaker Bio:

Formally trained in product and industrial design, I have now being working in digital and usability for over 12 years. Starting out I managed content and intranets, and then moved into usability testing and user experience research -so I can understand issues from both client/owner and end user perspective. I am passionate about user experience and lead a team of practitioners working on a variety of projects including web, mobile, print and in-store research.
