Using a focused and deliberate Human Centred Design process, we design solutions that solve real problems in real life contexts for real people. Design research is a critical component of the process where we gain vital insight into the problem being solved. Why conduct research? So we don’t build the wrong usable thing — Like a snow machine for an eskimo… Fact: UX is not really UX without user research. User research focuses on understanding; • User behaviours • User needs • User motivations Have you ever wondered how good user research is conducted?

In many ways technology has made our lives easier, but at what cost? Nearly everyone around us has a smartphone and is hyperconnected to one another, yet less people can hold a meaningful conversation with complete strangers. In an age where micro-plastics are filling our oceans, child exploitation is on the rise and humanity is being pulled into question; we need to explore whether we can we use technology for social good. At our event, Tech for Social Good, our expert panelists will explore: • What tech companies are currently doing to drive social good • Case studies and examples of tech for social good • Upcoming projects and initiatives that will use tech to benefit society
