Team Fluxible 2017

Running an event like Fluxible takes tons of time and effort, so we want to make sure you know who’s working behind the scenes to make it happen. Everyone on Team Fluxible contributes across a wide range of activities, far more than what’s mentioned below. But we want to acknowledge the areas in which our fine folks have taken the lead — so you know whom to thank for a job well done.

Mark Connolly

As co-chair, Mark helps to set the vision, craft the program, and design the overall conference experience. He’ll also personally sample each beer to ensure it’s up to his standards, so keep a close eye on your glass.

Robert Barlow-Busch

As co-chair, Bob helps to set the vision, craft the program, and design the overall conference experience. He’ll also personally test the espresso machine at 30-minute intervals to ensure it’s pulling consistent shots.

Susan Simon Daniels
Meetups Co-Wrangler

Susie makes sure our week-long UX festival is packed with great meetups. Wherever there’s a brown-bag lunch or intriguing site visit, Susie will be on hand to contribute to the adventure, point out the recycling bins, and remind you of the next awesome event awaiting you.

Jennifer Krul
Jennifer Krul
Meetups Co-Wrangler

Jen’s job is to help make Fluxible Meetups a success. Whether you join us for one or all of the week’s many events, Jen will be there to wrangle crowds, answer burning questions, and make random but usually helpful announcements.

Hans Kao
Volunteer Wrangler

Hans orchestrates our onsite volunteers. This intrepid group will bend their brains and flex their muscles behind the scenes to make everything happen. Coordinating this team takes much skill, so throughout the year, Hans practices with herds of cats.

Jim Bousquet
Jim Bousquet
Speaker Wrangler

Jim makes sure our speakers have an awesome time, so they’re raring to go when they hit the stage. He takes care of our visiting friends by acting as their personal travel agent and onsite concierge. Jim’s the host with the most!

Sandra Loop
Party Wrangler

After a day of filling our brains with professional goodness, it’s time to let loose and have some fun. Sandra’s cooking up plans for our Saturday night bash, which kicks off right after our final afternoon session. Rumours suggest that Sandra is prototyping the party at her house every Friday. If only we knew the address…

Lisa Barlow-Busch
Food Wrangler

While speakers feed our minds with big ideas, Lisa feeds our bellies with some pretty spectacular goodies. Food’s a big deal at Fluxible, and Lisa approaches the task as if the conference itself is just an afterthought, an excuse to lay out a good spread — even if you don’t eat shrimp on Saturdays, hate broccolli, and prefer your milk straight from the goat.

Curtis VanderGriendt
Book Wrangler

Fluxible’s opportunities to learn and grow don’t stop with speakers and workshops. We have books, too! This is entirely thanks to Curtis, who runs the Fluxible bookstore to make sure you can take home deep thoughts from our speakers, alumni, and other great UX authors. Think of him as your friendly Fluxible librarian.
