User Experience Research
Until your business has benefited from the work of an anthropologist, you'll never know how much you need one.
For the company that puts the needs of their community first.
We can act as user experience (UX) researchers, particularly if you are – a government agency or charity – undergoing digital transformation.
If your company is experiencing disjointed inter-departmental relationships, we can work alongside your employees to identify processes which will improve relationships and ultimately productivity.
Combining extensive industry experience with a first class honours degree in anthropology, and the recent completion of the MA in public and voluntary sectors’ policy and practice, it’s my aim to help you improve your services, projects or organisation.
