- Organisational change

Creating space for a relational approach

Think back to when you were in the first week of a new job or the first kick-off session with a new client or team. How did you feel in those first few moments? I know I’ve experienced a range of emotions from nervous, anxious, excited, keen, cautious etc. Perhaps the other people in the team or client felt similar feelings in those moments too. In my experience, those feelings are common at the start of relationships in environments that aren’t particularly focused on this as a critical outcome.

Powering up Power to change

This is the journey of how a supportive ecosystem was created to re-imagine how Power to Change provide’s support to community businesses using an empathetic design-led approach.

Design mentoring and organisational change in the charity sector

This is the story of how I joined DOT PROJECT and bought design thinking, service design and a relational mindset to 100s of charities and social-good organisations. I created design themed support programmes and mentored charities to solve complex problems and develop their confidence and capability to innovate.

Digital transformation at Fitflop

This is the story of how, over seven months, I helped lead, consult and guide the Fitflop team to redesign, re-platform their website and begin their journey of digital transformation. While initially I was asked to provide UX on a website redesign, it was soon apparent that the challenge was much more complex and would need me to dig deep and stretch across several roles.

User goals at the heart of everything with Cooperatives UK

This is the story of how I uncovered vital insights for the Co-operatives UK (Co-ops UK) website redesign project and supported the team to look at their business in a completely different way.  I did this by understanding their users’ goals to create a shared language and generate conversations for change.   My role as a user researcher was to give the team confidence for the right shape and direction of the web redesign project.
