Community Events

I like to talk about design and innovation! It’s a great opportunity to learn from others by sharing insights, inspirations and experiences. I also organize and contribute to community events and workshops, advocating for design and its role in innovation, product and service delivery.

Women In Technology 

The Women in Technology World Series celebrates the success of women across the tech sector, broadcasting a lineup of inspirational speakers through its webinar platform. I was delighted to speak in May 2020 about the importance of validating market and consumer demand and interest at product discovery stage and throughout a continuous discovery cycle.

UX Design in Saas

I spoke virtually about designing consumer-centric products and validation through research and testing at the Melbourne based UX Design in SaaS meetup group, sharing some projects I’ve worked on where customer value was validated early on in the product lifecycle. 

Design Innovation Kerry

Through Design Innovation Kerry, I’ve organised several remote Lightning Decision Jams, getting the opportunity to connect with participants from around the world who have an interest in Design Thinking.

Tralee UX

When I first moved to Tralee in Co. Kerry, I organised some design meetups – connecting with others interested in design and product. Our first session was a Design Sprint workshop, soon followed by several Lightning Talks events with some excellent contributors. I spoke about the experience on Kerry Sci Tech’s In Business podcast on Radio Kerry.

K Service Jam

Scheduled to run in Fexco’s innovation centre the RDI Hub but postponed due to COVID-19, I’m on the organising team for K Service Jam. A Global Service Jam event, participants from all around the world join forces together to innovate, experiment and create new service experiences or improve existing ones. To help with marketing I also created the event’s website and branding.
