This month’s speaker is UX expert and consultant, Karen T. Lin. Everyone knows you must “talk to users” — but very few people know how to do it the right way. UX veteran Karen T. Lin is in Taipei to set the record straight about UX and user research. In this talk, Karen will explain the signs and symptoms of inadequate feedback, common pitfalls to watch out for, and how to extract meaningful insights from users to make strategic design, and business, decisions.
Originally from Boston, Karen is a UX & innovation consultant who invests in teams that seek to infuse user-validated insights into their product process. Now based in Taipei & Hong Kong, Karen has also mentored for ALPHA Camp, Lean Startup Machine, and Foxconn’s H.Spectrum startup teams. Karen’s background in Human Factors & Ergonomics (HFE) coupled with over 11 years in User Experience (UX) on e-commerce & app projects for Fortune 500 clients puts her in a unique position to take on the design challenges of a multi-device, multi-channel world. Part consultant and part coach, Karen is dedicated to empowering teams to become more skillful at validating ideas with real users and cultivating an intuition for identifying – and anticipating – unmet consumer needs.
