Headline Speakers


Alison Coward, Founder of Bracket.

Great Workshops, Great Teams

Workshops are an essential part of our projects for gathering information and generating ideas. But sometimes the energy and motivation is lost soon after they finish. How can you make sure your workshops have a longer-term impact, to influence the way your team works together?

In this talk, Alison will share her practical tips for designing and facilitating effective workshops that generate high-quality outcomes, and how to keep the momentum going that contributes to a collaborative team culture.


Ruby Steel & Will Merrill, from Smart Design.

"Sorry, I didn't get that"- Designing for Voice.

Together, Ruby & Will will share their experiences of designing for BBC Two's Big Life Fix, when they built a custom Voice User Interface (VUI) for a woman living with multiple sclerosis. Today's Home Hubs might seem like the obvious answer for people whom dexteriry and mobility is a major issue but VUI's are still in their infancy and not accessible by any means.
