Even though she is a self-confessed geek, Lola spends most of her time putting people ahead of technology. With a wealth of experience as a UX specialist, she ensures user-centered research and design are at the centre of all her work. Having worked agency-side, client-side and now in a start-up, Lola is adept at dealing with a wide range of UX problems and opportunities.

The last five-years Lola has focused her career on the strategic-side of things marrying good taste in technology with addressing big business challenges. She helps organisations to see the bigger picture and mitigate their ”me too” tendencies, with meaningful, impactful and tangible product visions which they can actually execute. Lola is currently working at Chainspace, a start-up that’s creating meaningful services enabled by blockchain technology.

Lola is spearheading the exploration of real-world use-cases focused on user needs. The goal is to create a new wave of services that harness the immense capabilities of decentralised technology, in usable and meaningful ways.

An intellectual with a big heart, Lola is also an advocate for increased diversity in the tech industry and mentors young people pursuing careers in digital.
