January 2, 2019 — User Experience (UX) and Customer Experience (CX) design are in high demand these days and for good reason. Giant corporations are losing big money, big lawsuits, big customers, market share… or even *worse*. One key factor separating the successful businesses from those not, can be chalked up to an intentionally **diverse** and **inclusive** focus on UX/CX both online and off. Successful design is multifaceted, but a huge factor to UX/CX and Accessibility improvements in digital and public spaces are *directly* linked to an increase of diversity with those who create these spaces. If you think you have nothing to offer when it comes to improving the usability and accessibility of the products and sites you create and/or use, you’re absolutely wrong. In my over 20 years of experience designing solutions for users and customers, I have seen first-hand how important it is that I *unapologetically* bring my own individual diversity to the table. We have come a long way with design, yet still have a long journey ahead. But if we band together with our diverse rainbow of humans (pun intended), we will keep pushing technology forward, and everyone wins.

March 15, 2017 — Fitting user focussed design methodologies into a development process needn’t be difficult. Our objectives as UX practitioners, as designers, as developers, as product owners etc are the same – to build the best possible thing in the time we have and within budget. The difficulties that surround projects are often much more to do with communication and process than they are about the differences between the disciplines. As well as adding weight and dimension to UX discovery, thinking about what we are building as separate and connected objects, and particularly the exercise that I share in this session, can be really helpful in building a foundation for better communication and collaboration across team, discipline and organisation(s).
