Jaz first fell in love with experience design in the hospitality industry, while teaching herself to build websites on a dial-up modem. She got her first break as web designer in the year 2000, and worked in digital agencies in NZ & the UK before focusing on UX as a specialisation.
Jaz has worked for tech companies with millions of users globally and designed award-winning digital products for NZ success stories such as Flip, PlaceMakers & Tend Health.
She has established user-centred design processes in a number of product teams, driving outcomes with measurable impact on business success and customer satisfaction, and worked as a product designer, UX strategist and product manager.
Outside of work, she dabbles in parametric furniture design, home automation design and is just a little bit obsessed with mid-century architecture.

Using real-life examples from highly successful products, learn how thinking like a product manager can give you more influence in the direction of a product or service - and drive results that stand out.
