Talks & teaching

I am incredibly passionate about sharing knowledge, whether that is within other areas of the business I work, at industry events or educational institutes.

I've done a number of talks about UX, design thinking, but also about leadership and wellbeing. I've also taught design methods to college and university students and am currently a lead tutor as part of the Innovater Her organisation, teaching and inspiring girls at high school.
