Anxiety disorders affect 1 in 13 people in the world. Unfortunately, psychological difficulties are stigmatised. When we talk about disability, we think about physical disabilities. What about mental disabilities? Anxiety affects everyone. People don't need to suffer from severe anxiety to experience stress in their daily life. As designers, we have the privilege and responsibility to create stress-free products and services. 5 concrete tips to design soothing experiences.

How to pivot without falling over!

This talk addresses the unruly and somewhat messy underbelly of product design in start-ups & scale-ups.

Drawing on the experience of a decade of designing products for companies on a quest for product market fit, I’ll share my playbook on imagining, building and designing product when the roadmap is constantly being rewritten.

This is an insider’s look into the journey of disruptors arriving in markets with little competition, only to find themselves in feature wars and land grabs before long. Existential threats from economies of scales and large tech giants notwithstanding pivoting isn’t always the answer and one size most certainly doesn’t fit all.

At key junctures empowering, educating and empathising with business decision makers in early growth start-ups, falls upon the shoulders of the humble designer.

2:30 PM to 3:00 PM
Coffee Break
