UX Consciousness


X Topic Abstract

In this presentation I'll run through the basic fundamentals of UX, the UX process, how it slides into Agile and then discuss the Consciousness required by Businesses, Teams and Customers; wanting to successfully deliver digital relevance into the soup created by the likes of Uber, AirBnB and Netflix. I'll be taking questions afterwards for 10 minutes.

Speaker Profile

Since 1989, Bernard has spent more than a decade working with a variety of programming languages; he transitioned from development to automated load, performance and system testing; led development teams and business analyst teams on large transformation projects and project-managed teams across different continents. The transition into UX came while on a three year secondment as a Business Analyst, when asked to support a large BA team with user experience designs for an internal administration CRM and two client facing websites.

Over the last six years, business has become of particular interest to Bernard and having a practical passion for UX it was only natural for Bernard’s to blend the flavours of Business and User Experience together. He’s extremely practical, looks at ‘shifting’ business metrics and will often say, “UX is the tool we use to shift a business” because he believes this is the fundamental purpose of User Experience Strategy and Design.


X Topic Abstract

I'd like to tell the story of how we designed our team at Envato, and would cover the following areas:

How we structure the team around cross-functional agile delivery teams

How we support that distributed team with specialist

Creating autonomy (letting go as the manager)

How we maintain a close team within a distributed environment

Creating a culture of delivery, through iteration and experimentation

Some of the tools and techniques we use, including:

- Stand-ups
- Retros
- Atomic design principles
- The right technology

How we recruit for the team

All this will be done with real world examples of what we have achieved at Envato and the journey we've been on over the last 12 months. The goal would be to provide the audience wth some quick take-aways that they can apply to their teams immediately, and a wider understanding of how hard creating a team can be and that it take a long time, but the results are worth the effort.

At a Glance


X Topic Abstract

It is interesting how our perception guides our attention but underlying our instinctive nature of autonomy and time saving guides our choices, in this presentation i explore a very specific set of features that make users take certain choices and have them stick with them.

working with a set of examples, we will explore these principles which are fundamental for capturing attention and producing loyalty.

i like understanding the why of things and behaviours and my exploration goes from personal and professional experience to my recent research in this field from various authors and studies.

Speaker Profile

I am a Mechanical Engineer, I slowly moved from the world of mechanics to the software industry, going through manufacturing for more than 12 years then moving into services and software. Throughout this journey I have been appointed different roles in different departments, which has broaden my perception of work, work itself is probably the most pervasive activity we do but surprisingly, we don't receive an equitable level of awareness and education on this subject, I am currently working in deploying a leading technology in the mining industry where software is seeping in, to make work more productive, just like in every aspect of our lives. This is my new area of exploration.
