Headline Speakers

Jessica Lovegood, AVP UX Designer from Barclays.

Growing a business by ignoring money and focusing on user experience

This talk is about growing a business through good user experience. When you hear this, you may think that I just mean “good design means more customers”, but this talk goes deeper than that. I will talk about applying UX throughout a business and how this kind of user focused thinking, can allow your business to grow more organically, with less penny pinching, less cost and in less time.

Mansha Manohar, Senior UX Design Researcher from BBC.

Making it count: UX for all

Working in the User Experience & Design (UX&D) team at the BBC means designing for everyone — a great challenge and a huge responsibility! I will be sharing some lessons I have learnt along the way conducting research on BBC products — such as News, Weather and World Service — in the UK and beyond.
