Speaker Announcement: Kendra Shimmell
Life was starting to get heavy around these parts under the burden of a real jerk-face winter. Then we got word that our next speaker was a go, and well, it was as good as springtime in Paris!
There is extra bounce in our step, oomph in our stride and giddyup in our go because when you get a patent-holding, depressing emo-rock loving, UX Bootcamp creating, SXSW panel moderating, karaoke singing designer (phew!) to speak at your conference, it's a pretty sweet deal.
As an educator, speaker, and designer, she has brought product strategy, design, and business innovation to companies ranging from Fortune 500s to startups in a range of categories, from healthcare systems and medical devices to retail environments, consumer electronics, financial services, enterprise management, and more.
Always with a soft spot for healthcare, she initiated Cooper’s partnership with Rock Health, which has since grown to a successful mentorship program, matching Cooper designers with their healthcare startup teams.
Active in the design community, she has served on the Board of Directors of the Interaction Design Association (IxDA), and speaks at numerous industry events.
Stay tuned for further announcements about details of Kendra’s session at Fluxible.
