Research Manager , WeWork (MailChimp)
As the drivers of products and experiences, we’re fortunate to work with a wealth of information. We rely on the wisdom of our personal and collective experiences, training, and education, and we employ tools to wrangle insights from big data. Yet there’s much strategy and direction to be gained by going beyond wisdom and data. In his talk, UX Research Manager Gregg Bernstein discusses the role of big data and context in user research. He explains how companies must use both to make informed product decisions.

The Safe Delivery App is an innovative new mobile training tool that can save the lives of women and newborns. Every day, women die from causes related to pregnancy and childbirth, and 99 % of these deaths are preventable with the care of a skilled birth attendant. The Safe Delivery App teaches birth attendants in developing countries to handle life-threatening complications during childbirth. The app is developed by Maternity Foundation in cooperation with leading researchers from University of Copenhagen and University of Southern Denmark.
Wallo was designed for emotions from the outset. It’s embedded in the core offering of this Danish startup: Your photos on Instagram™, printed and framed, ready to hang. Wallo believes that the best user experiences are created by removing layers, between a product and the people that depend on it to get a job done. Not just the end user, but for everyone involved in the customer journey: Less tech, more talk = trustworthy relations that elicit happy, empowered, and loyal users.
European Director of Research and Insights, Wipro Digital
UX is a team effort: So many different skills, points of views, and expertise is needed to deliver best-in-class services and products. But to do this a team must function well, with memebers trusting each other and communicating smoothly, overcoming differences and diverse point of views. In this session we'll use LEGO Serious Play to think creatively in groups, share ideas and co-create the next winning experiences.

Senior Information Architect and author, inUse
Emotions are a big issue in enterprise systems. Frustration and even rage is something that's (unfortunately) is so often triggered by dismal systems in the workplace (travel expense systems, time reporting, etc etc). Which is sad, because we should really have systems at work that are as pleasant and nice to use, as many of the systems we can use as consumers, in our private lives.
