Phu Ly

Senior Product Design Manager, Deliveroo

On being a (Design) Manager

What does it mean to be a Design Manager? Often, designers are thrown into the world of management as they progress, but the skills that helped them get there aren’t necessarily the same ones that help them succeed into their new roles. Phu will talk through some of his learnings on building and managing design teams.

Vuokko Aro

Lead Product Designer, Monzo

Making an Impact with Design

Vuokko will talk about what it’s like to work in a design team at a rapidly growing and changing company like Monzo. Moving fast, it’s been crucial for the small design team to learn to work on the right things that make an impact. Vuokko will talk about design’s role at Monzo, how it’s developed and where it’s going.
