Our approach to training

If you don’t know what your users want or need, you can’t effectively create an interface that they will want to work with. We want you to improve your products by effectively engaging with your users and we can help you learn how to do this. Our training courses are all taught by our professional user experience (UX) consultants and designers who will share with you their real world experience of the UX tools and techniques we use to create sites and applications that delight our customers. Our in-house training team includes:

  • Chris Bush, Head of Experience Design - Chris heads up our user centered research, design and testing team, working across sectors to optimise products and services for our clients and their audience (online profile:
