About Simon: Starting my design career in the early 2000’s I have found myself wearing many hats over the years; designer, developer, product strategist, team lead, problem solver - and more - but always keeping the same element as my focus ‘the end user’. With a constant passion for human centred design, I am always seeking knowledge around how we can build better solutions for customers and love empowering my teams to join me on this journey. Currently I find myself as UX Manager at RAC WA, an extremely rewarding position, with a group of amazing teams in an ever changing industry. When I’m not in the office you can find me with our members, or on stage sharing my knowledge about design at conferences around Australia.
