Taming the unicorn: Dealing with troublesome UX folk

Ian-Fenn-200A talk from Ian Fenn on how PM’s can get the most out of the UX process and team.


For the past seven years Ian has worked as an independent UX consultant for everyone from startups to major corporates. Clients such as BT, Virgin Media, LexisNexis, and agencies such as M&C Saatchi and Conran Design Group have recognised his ability to consistently exceed project targets through intelligent and thoughtful interaction design.

Maintain project momentum – for your team, your client and of course, yourself!

suze-howarth-200Having been focused on three very long term projects at her current agency, with the odd fast-paced one thrown in, Suze will look at how we can avoid project fatigue on those projects that seem to be going on forever and where productivity is slowing down to zero.


Suze Haworth is a Senior Project Manager at Numiko in Leeds. She has 9 years experience working in an agency environment, moving through the ranks from her early days in account management before realising her true calling for the dark side, project management.

Suze has managed projects for the BBC, Channel 4 and WaterAid, and recently worked on a year long project for a new initiative alongside Nesta, Nominet Trust and Mozilla to launch ‘Make Things Do Stuff’, aiming to get kids into digital making.
