Our Speakers

Krzysztof Piwowar

Design Manager & UX Expert

PGS Software

Krzysztof believes that the design should inform the technology — and not the other way around. During his presentation, he’ll be making the case that design can truly help drive technological effort, by making it more human and easily accessible.

Andrew Godfrey

Senior Design Specialist

InVision

Andrew will be sharing key findings from InVision’s report exploring the relationship between design practices and business performance. This latest InVision report is the widest-ranging report of its kind & its findings are already transforming the way organisations work.

Ben Wilson Experience Design Manager & Will Hearn Director of Development

Sage

When it comes to design challenges the team at Sage have really had their work cut out. Creating a user experience that is recognisably Sage, works well across desktop applications and native cloud, and makes feature-packed applications easy to use for time-pressed business owners is no mean feat.

Will and Ben show how the team drew on best design theory to deliver and apply an effective design system at pace and scale. Find out about Sage’s approach, discover how seemingly-insurmountable design problems were cut down to size, and hear more about the impact the open-source Carbon design system has had on user experience.

Just a friendly note, we're planning to record a couple of videos, so there will be a camera present onsite.
