Take your design career to the next level

Home: Welcome

Hi. I'm Lisa

UX design and research can be a tough industry to break into. I’ve been an experience design practitioner since the late 90s (yeah, I know!) and I’ve worked with clients from a huge range of industries. I’ve built, run and sold a leading design consultancy, and I have coached and mentored countless designers along the way.

If you want to get started in UX, CX, product design or service design, I’d be honored to help you get started. And if your career is a little stuck, you’re ready to take the next step, or you’re dealing with a tricky stakeholder, my experience can help you get to the next level.

Anna Riccio

Design Leader

Lisa was very knowledgeable, easy to listen to and communicated the concepts around the multiple facets of Design very well and made the intense week really enjoyable. Having had her own design company and having worked as a consultant she had many stories and examples to draw on that illustrated the relevant design concepts that we were learning. I’d definitely recommend Lisa as a facilitator, trainer and consultant and hope to cross paths with her again.


Lara Moor

Design Manager

Working with Lisa, given her incredible background and wealth of experience, is a rare opportunity. I cant begin to list all the things that I learnt from Lisa, simply working with her taught me so much about everything from facilitation to cultivating a consultants' mindset. I would love to work with her and learn from her again.


Lou Compagnone

Service Design Leader

I got in touch with Lisa after reaching a cross-road in my human-centered design career. She helped me to step away from my day-to-day challenges to see what an ideal future could look like, and how to move forwards in that direction through a series of practical steps. Ironically, this is a process I help my clients with every day, but somehow hadn’t applied HCD techniques to my own situation. Since our session, I feel more empowered, focussed and excited about what’s to come.


Lain Duong

Service Designer

Lisa showed great passion and experience for HCD. She has an amazing ability to listen, manage group energy, and bring people on a journey of self-learning and collaboration. I was impressed with how comfortable she was with creating new activities and altering her facilitation structure on the spot to give us the outcomes we desire. Her genuine, humble, yet confident characters make her a fantastic person to learn from.


Lisa works with clients from around the world from her home in coastal Queensland, Australia. Get in touch today to learn more about how she can help you design your career.
