Hi. I’m Lisa

UX design and research can be a tough industry to break into. I’ve been an experience design practitioner since the late 90s (yeah, I know!) and I’ve worked with clients from a huge range of industries. I’ve built, run and sold a leading design consultancy, and I have coached and mentored countless designers along the way.

If you want to get started in UX, CX, product design or service design, I’d be honored to help you get started. And if your career is a little stuck, you’re ready to take the next step, or you’re dealing with a tricky stakeholder, my experience can help you get to the next level.
